First Snowmen of Season

We had our first snow! It was very nice packing snow and we made snowmen. They were about 5 inches tall. The eyes are M&Ms and the nose is candy corn. When we were done we took out the candy and wrecked our snowmen with snowballs. I hope it snows soon so we can make more snowmen and have a snowball fight!

Playing in Color

Today we went to the Colors for Kids 5K run, they do it once a year. They give you one or two bags of powdered chalk and you decorate yourself and then you run and you get colored all over. It was a 5k run, it felt short. We had fun. I hope we do it again. 

Lights

On Saturday we played with lights. Mommy took long exposure pictures while I stood still and Andrea and Megan traced me with glow sticks and a flashlight. We had fun. I hope to do again soon.  

Stained glass windows

img_7246-stained-glassOn Sunday Megan and I made a stained glass Nativity. Here is how to make them. You will need,

  • Colored tissue paper
  • Some Con-Tact paper
  • Wax paper*
  • Thick Black construction paper
  • Scissors and X-Acto knife
  • Glue**

How to make one.

  1. Find a Nativity picture you like and print it.
  2. Trace it onto the Black construction paper
  3. Use the X-Acto knife (put cardboard under the black construction paper) to cut out around the people and the stable.
  4. Stick the Nativity on the Con-Tact paper
  5. Cut the tissue paper into little pieces
  6. Stick the colored tissue paper onto the Con-Tact Nativity on just the Con-Tact paper
  7. Glue** the wax paper* onto the back of the Nativity

*Or you cold use more Con-Tact paper.

**If you use more Con-Tact paper you do not need glue.

Light Show

When the big kids have church in the evening, Megan and I do an activity with Momma if our room is clean. Tonight we played with little LED lights outside. We got a lot of cool pictures.

Maybe we can try it again and focus different so you can see us better.

Then Momma reads a special book out loud to us while we snuggle in bed.  She is reading Ramona and Beezus (by Beverly Cleary) now, so I need to get to bed fast!

Good night!
