We made a quick trip to our nearby Michael's to pick up some stickers for two projects that they worked on. The afternoon was spent painting and decorating lamp kits that I discovered packed away in boxes along with some metal frames.
For the frames, they glued small magnets or magnet strips to 3-D stickers to decorate the frames. They will be able to change them from time to time to suit the photos they place in the frames.
The lamp kits will make a nice night-lite for their rooms. Again, they used a variety of stickers to decorate the translucent shades, after painting the base with their choice of colors. If they desire, they will be able to add other decorations at a later time.
It's fun having crafty kids in the family!
After dinner we laid around the family room watching a "marathon" of Harry Potter movies before calling it a night. Before getting picked up by mom and dad, we made them their
favorite breakfast when they stay over - French Toast with crispy bacon.
