Here we are, nearly six weeks into summer vacation. I can hardly believe it. It is going by so quickly. This afternoon, a good friend with bad allergies came for a visit, and her presence made me aware of all the dust in my home. Dust, cat hair, general untidiness (no funk, I assure you…the bathrooms and kitchen are not unclean!) and I realised how long it has been since I did much other than soak up summer with these two little girls and a lack of schedule. Hallelujah for that! How blessed and lucky!
For our fun craft project, we dove into marbleized paper à la Artful Parent with shaving foam and liquid watercolours. This is an excellent, satisfying summer project! I highly recommend you set it up outside with a ready hose to wash off all the extra shaving foam the kids cannot resist. Clean-up of the table and trays was simple too. The results: awesome.
