A piece a Week – Kids Time Out from Camp, Let’s Get Crafting! A birdhouse redo…

This week it was a downtime week with no camp for the kiddos so we took it easy had some playdates with friends and hung out listening to audio books. The project of this week was something easy and because I have a lot of magazines I needed to find a project that uses paper… I decided that collage would be an easy option and not so boring for the kiddos.

Well, if there is a book to distract you other projects just don’t cut it for my older one! Still he attempted this project and made the orange and green bird house keeping the under colour paint because he it looks good! Better something than nothing, they both enjoyed the Modge Podge painting which seals and glues in one quick brush, just love it!! My missy made hers and called it cherry because of all the pink and flowers and she drew cherries on the top and bottom to make it her own.

What ya need is some magazines – go on and tear them up!, Elmers Glue for positioning of the paper, modge podge and crafting paint brushes (ones that you do not use for painting).

They are now hanging in the tree in the garden and looked ever so fancy!
