The High King Lives

Crafty Monday: Spring Peg Dolls & Weather Crafts April 30, 2012

Hello friends and welcome to Crafty Monday. Last week I talked about my peg doll hobby and my hope to better it so I can sell my creations one day. I was very inspired after that post and spent the next two nights making a Spring box. I wasn’t sure if I was going to try to sell it or not but Michael automatically assumed it was his. So….it’s his now.

We are learning about bugs all in May and I thought it’d be neat to make some buggy dolls :). There’s a butterfly, a bee, a lady bug, and two flower people.

I used felt to make the flowers that I glued to the bottom.

I think this is my best set yet and it looks neater. Maybe I’m improving πŸ™‚

Last Monday I mentioned we were going to do some weather crafts when we had time. Last Thursday weΒ  had a short day of school and had a fun craft day. We used some of the ideas I mentioned last week. Links are on that post.

Rain Stick

I put nails inside a paper towel tube. I don’t think I put it enough because it doesn’t quite sound like rain. Anywho, the nails are supposed to slow the rice or bells etc down and make a rain sound.

Then I glued red construction paper to the tube.

That’s when Michael added rice, beans, and bells.

After, heΒ  put on modge podge and decorated with feathers, tissue paper, glitter, and buttons.

Wind Socks

We simply took toilet paper tubes and painted them.

Then I cut up strips of paper and we glued them on for a handle.

Next, I cut strips of tissue paper and we glued them inside the tube so they’d hang down.

I added pipe cleaners to tie them to Michael’s play ground.

Easy Kite

You simply tie a string to a plastic bag and run with it πŸ™‚

Fun Way to blow up balloons

Fill a bottle 1/3 with vinegar

then put some baking soda in a balloon

put the balloon over the bottle but keep it folded so the baking soda doesn’t come out

hold the balloon up to release the baking soda

watch the gas from the mixture blow up the balloon πŸ™‚

You can tell we had fun!

Oh yeah, Michael got his Yellow belt. I’m so proud πŸ™‚

God bless and remember The High King Lives!~Amber Dover
