Going Batty!

On Friday, we took advantage of a little bit of sunshine and did some crafts outside! Thank goodness for the sun, because this involved glitter!

I cut some bats out of black cardstock, punched a hole in the head, and let the kids go at it!

I had many mediums of glue, spray, brush on, squeeze, etc. How exciting. And LOTS of glitter. Heaven! We had planned ahead to have the boys from next door over to do this with us, and while we were out there some other kids came up the street and joined in. (one girl is in Cannon's class) I just loved that. Kids trickling in from everywhere and doing their best job on their fancy bats! It was just lovely. (I'm glad I had lots cut out!)

Then we hung ours all on the porch. They look so cool when the wind blows!

Now, I just have to get Harper to understand what a bat is. Doesn't she look confused?? Ha! Hope you all had a great weekend!

What a blast! Harper's face is the best! It's great that your house is the 'gathering place' where kids know they can come, have fun and be safe.
