Day 28: Getting Crafty

The week had lots of ups and downs but with Friday and Day 28 now here, I was looking forward to fun weekend activities and hopefully a little bit of rest.  It was a rainy day but we ran a few errands in the afternoon, including a first time visit to the Resuse Centre to look for craft supplies.

I have a collection of toilet paper rolls I save for crafts and I saw a cute craft earlier in the month from Danya Banya that would be fun and easy to do for Halloween. Soon as the girls seen it, it was an immediate yes.  I try to have a stash of googly eyes on hand but I needed yarn to complete the project. We picked up yarn and a few books at the Reuse Centre and talked about reduce, reuse and recycle and how everyday items can be reused for cool projects. 

Day 28: Getting Crafty

We whipped these creatures up in 30 minutes before bedtime!  They had fun picking their monster’s attributes and even tried the glue gun for the first time. We could of used yarn or pipe cleaners for the hair, but they wanted feathers like in the original so we will pick those up to complete the piece.
