leaves craft...

This week Noah and I had some fun crafting while Naomi was napping. We cut out leaves on the cricut and then I let him paint them with fall colors. It was messy, messy and more messy. After they dried over night, I sewed them together.

I liked the way it turned out!

fun at the air show...

Adam and took Noah on a little date to the air show sunday. He loved the "big jets" and said he was very "exciting". He also told us the jets were scaring his ears. =)

melted crayon canvas

This weekend I was in the mood to make something fun and craft with Noah.  I had been organizing our playroom and wanting to decorate in there. I'm hoping to paint this weekend. It's one of the only rooms in the house that hasn't been painted since we moved in. I got this cute idea off Pinterest which originally comes from Crayon Wishes and Popsicle Dreams. This is so easy and so fun! Honestly, Noah didn't help as much as he would have liked. It takes some time and the blowdryer and crayons obviously get very hot.

It's simple though, just hot glue 59 crayons to your canvas, ours is 16x20, and then hold your blowdryer or heating tool (I also used an embossing heating gun) and melt away. I love how it turned out and can't wait to get it hung in the playroom.

 (I would recommend either doing this outside or on tile floor because the crayons dripped in some places, but it was easy to peel off of the tile.)
