flowers

Yesterday was beautiful, sunny and warm; today we woke up to see snow flurries swirling past our window and covering the ground.  And a cold wind; can’t forget that.  Oh well, it is March and that means “in like a lion and out like a lamb”!

When I was planning for my grandchildren to spend the day with me, my mind went to activities centered around flowers because I had seen several blooming daffodils and flowering trees in my travels.  I decided to include planting flower seeds (to be transplanted to Grandma’s flower garden later), making a flower craft and reading a book or two about flowers to round out our flower adventures.

borax crystal snowflakesChristmas, along with its many special craft projects is now behind us.  Winter weather is looming large though, making it the perfect time to create crafts dealing with snow and ice.  Making Borax crystal snowflakes has to be one of the easiest and most fun craft projects we can do with our grandchildren, plus you end up with a beautiful snowflake to hang and enjoy!

So this week, after her younger siblings were in bed, my 6 year old granddaughter and I spent some special time together making some snowflakes.  They’re so simple, but turn out so pretty! Read more….

halloween craftsMy grandkids love Halloween.   Whether they like the costumes or the candy more, I’m not sure!  I do know that they also love Halloween crafts and I enjoy coming up with crafts we can do together.

I’ve gathered together a few crafts that I think you will enjoy making with your grandchildren.  But before we get into them, I would like to add that if you don’t have time to gather supplies or maybe you just don’t want to, you can find kits at your local hobby store that have everything needed to put together easy projects.  I bought Halloween stamps and Read more…

Letter BSometimes when grandchildren are going to be spending the day with me, I’m very organized and plan out details of their visit.  Other times, I just wing it!  This past week when three of them were going to be spending the day with me, plus having a sleepover,  I was organized!

When planning their visit, I was thinking about the things we could do together, and I decided to plan some activities and crafts around the letter B, specifically “B is for bird”.

My plans included: Read more….
