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!
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 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!
