My blog features the activities and projects I do with my children. I have 3 children age 11, 7 and 4. I watch an infant, plus my 4 year old nephew! This blog highlights the activities/projects we create during the week. It also provides a way for me to organize all of the activities and projects we do, and it is a great way to share the projects/activities. I hope this blog will become a great resource and inspire creativity.

Day 3 of the week. The theme this week is Painting.
Project - Lovely Lilacs - Use purple and lavender colored paint. Dip the eraser of a pencil into the paint and then press it on a white piece of paper. Repeat the process until the paper is filled with purple prints. When the paint is dry, trim the paper into several lilac-shaped cutouts. Then glue the lilacs on a green piece of construction paper cut into a bush shape. (Source: The Mailbox Magazine April/May 2009)
