My girls, especially, love, LOVE Pinterest. We have already pinned multiple wedding gowns for both of them. They are 7 and 3. In fact, I set up a Pinterest account for my 7 year old a while ago. She has enough DIY activities to keep us busy for the next 15 lifetimes. I have a problem with messes, a big problem. It causes me some anxiety because I KNOW that I will spend WAY more time cleaning up the mess than creating the craft. It’s just easier to avoid making the mess in the first place. However, I know that it is a great way for me to spend time with my kids, so I sometimes will take on this task. I need to do it more often because we have some great conversations. Plus, I learned that if I just make myself a yummy martini, I care a little less about the mess. This was an orange chocolate truffle martini, by the way. Delish!
I learned my youngest, Kaydence, is a little like her mother. She looked at the sticky stuff and was like “So, you want me to put my HANDS in THAT? No thanks.” She was out pretty quick. Madelynn was all about it and she did a great job. As with most Pinterest projects, they didn’t really look like the example. It was still pretty soft this morning so I will need to do something to stiffen up the yarn before we dispose of the balloon and make this into an Easter basket, but whatever. I think our next project will involve less glue….
