Today was the first time that I did an "organized" (the quotes are for those of you who know me well, know that I use the term VERY loosely) craft project with Price.  He's finally at an age where we can do things like this.  We had great fun and I said a prayer of blessing and thanks to all of my friends and family members who are teachers, especially of young, unruly children, and do things like this on a regular basis with children who don't belong to them!!

Here are some pics of the fun we had...

"Mom, I think this bowl is too big, I think I might dump everything on the floor."

Smaller bowl, easier access, less chance of a mess.  He loved how the flour felt on his fingers.

Stirring the goop

"I wish I hadn't tasted that!"  It was really salty.

Before paint

After paint

Some paint actually made it onto the ornaments, but he's still too young to really paint.  We won't attempt paint again for a while unless he's naked and outside and his mouth is taped shut and there's a hose to wash him off.

I LOVE it!!!! In the classroom we used to do arts and crafts all the time around Christmas. I can't wait to do this with Gabe. I know you guys don't have pinecones but one of my favorite things my mom used to do with us is paint and glitter pine cones - maybe coconuts would work for you guys? :)
