I had a special request from a customer which prompted me to try making floral crowns. I was super excited as I have wanted to give these a go for a while now. I’d already done a little research into how to make them. I just needed a good excuse to get started.
I love the magic and fantasy element of these. They are so dreamy and fun to make.
So, what do you think of the results?
If you like them, I’ve included some links below to posts that have instructions. They are a little fiddly but generally aren’t too hard to make.
Every Monday morning I spend an hour with the Grade 1 class at my son’s primary school listening to the kids read one on one. While I was there this morning the teacher was instructing the rest of the grade on how to write a poem. The example provided was about the colour green. The kids then had to pick another colour as a class and they brainstormed that colour. They chose red. They had to think of all the things that look, feel, taste and smell red. Afterwards, they were each sent off to spend some time compiling their poems.
Although I passed grade 1 a long time ago, I liked this idea and decided I want to write a “red” poem too. So here goes…
We are at our caravan this weekend. It is nice to be away but unfortunately the weather is pretty ordinary.
The kids were starting to be a little bored and restless. I was trying to think of something (besides TV) for them to do in a small space. Then I remembered something I’d seen on Pinterest.
So, we created this race track. My boys loved it and have spent lots of time reinventing it and racing their cars around. Not to mention a pit stop or two. And all it cost me was a couple of rolls of masking tape.
