Seems like a strange name for a craft blog, right? Well, I have always felt a little bit shy, or afraid to share my creativenss. When making something fabulous and someone compliments me, I usually play it off like it is no big deal. I have been a 'closet crafter' for too long! No more apologies! No more excuses! I love to craft and I am not ashamed!

Summertime Week 4 - Make Believe

Welcome to week #4 of Summertime fun!  I almost stopped (I know, after only three weeks?  Smells like a quitter to me!) but my girls were totally bugging me yesterday (Monday) to do their 'projects'!  I guess it has become our summertime routine and they are enjoying it!  Who woulda figured?  :)

So, this week we are all about "Make Believe".  Which in my home is pretty much princesses and fairies!  I am going to try to give ideas and incorporate boys into the equation when I can for you with boys running around your homes!

Yesterday we went to the library and checked out a bunch of crafty book ideas and princessy themed reading books.  This is how we always start our weeks - at the Library.  My girls love going there and it is F.R.E.E.!!!  The best part!  I had to grab some idea books because, like I mentioned, I wasn't prepared for this week at all!  I also found some ideas online for our week!



Here are some fun ideas I found online!

Princesses & Princes:
Princess Hair and Faces - I think it would be totally fun to print some of these off and let your kids color them, and then put pics of your kids in!  Kind of a crafty cute frame!
Paper Mache Shields - great prop for sword fights and saving damsel's in distress!
Flower Tiara - This is one I am sure we will be making!


Pirates:
Milk Carton Pirate Ship - Fun way to recycle old milk cartons or boxes!
Parchment Paper - Fun idea for a treasure hunt!
Spyglass - it even is collapsible!!!  What?!?
Treasure Box - made out of a tissue box!

Fairy:
Fairy Wand - Every fairy needs a magical wand!  We will most likely try something similar to this!
Flower Fairies - Make fairies from flowers and leaves!

Alrighty, so that is a start.  Tonight I will (hopefully) post pics from our activities today!
