Trixie’s Antics – Week 1

Meebs is starting to get into this whole Elf on the Shelf thing. She was a bit uncertain this morning looking for Trixie. I could tell she couldn’t quite understand why Trixie would be roaming around our house while we …

Trixie Everbloom

Today we welcomed Trixie Everbloom into our home for the first year. Yup, we’re doing Elf on the Shelf. I cheated a little and named her myself, because I just couldn’t bear to name her after a princess…Belle and Ariel …

CW – Cute as a Button

Gluing buttons. So much fun to a 3yr old. We started with some hard, thin “canvas”, purchased from the local dollar store. I scrolled the letter “A” onto one canvas and “E” on the other. I squeezed glue along the …

CW – we’re back…with Beads!

CW – Muffin Cup Flowers

With a mid-morning appointment, Crafty Wednesday was a little simpler today. Meebs coloured and decorated muffin cups that we pressed flat. Once dry we glued the cups to Popsicle sticks. Voila…pretty flowers that Meebs is incredibly proud of. But… I …

CW – Sharpie Mugs

Meebs’ grandparents are all coming to visit at the end of September: “Pa” and Grandma V, and Grandma M. This is the first time we will be all together. I think this will clear up some confusion about which Grandma …

CW – Clothespin Magnets

This was by far one of my favourite craft projects. Meebs made clothespin magnets. I purchased extra large clothespins and we made a butterfly, a bird and a bumblebee, as well as a variety of caterpillars. We used fuzzy pom-poms …
