A Hammer He'll Cherish...father's day gifts

We did some very simple, yet darling, father's day crafts today. The kids painted a hammer with acrylic paint, and a clear glaze on top. They also water colored some paper that we modged around a canister, making a little treat canister for their dads.

We also took some pictures of them holding this huge piece of foam board. Then I photoshoped in some text "I Love You Daddy!" I will frame this and add it to the hammer, treat box (filled with treats of course) Happy Father's Day!

Shape Concentration Kid Game

Berkely just turned 2. I know she knows what a star, circle, and heart is. The other shapes are kind of guess work. I cut some shapes out of felt, hand stitched them on some light fabric, sewed some material on the back, and created a little concentration game for us to play. I am hoping this will help a little with shapes.

Some of Berkely's Birthday Decorations

Birthday BannerCovered some tin cans and added some flowers that I revamped from the dollar store. I put these in the middle of each table, with some balloons tied to them. (filled with tissue paper and rocks to weigh the balloons down).
Funfetti Cupcakes for dessert

And I made Shannon come whip me up some yummy frosting (with her mad cake decorating skills).
Layered on the frosting in gigantic swirls.

Wrapped a diaper's box and a computer box and created a Cupcake stand.
Made some burlap flowers and material flowers for a picture display. (bad picture quality, sorry)

Painted a 3 by 3 block of wood, drilled some holes in top, added some dowells (all different lengths), and added some material, flowers, button, etc.
Used little clothes pins to clip my Berkely all over it.

Everything ready to go to the park: Cupcake tower, cupcakes, and Berkely's 2 year old picture display.
