Lately, I have really come to like all of the handmade and wooden toys that areavailable to kids. So, I went to Michaels on Saturday night and decided I was going to try and make my daughter her own set of ABC wooden blocks.

I purchased this plastic pail, some wooden blocks, and an alphabet sticker roll and headed home. (I already had lots of scrapbooking paper designs and glue.)

The first thing I did was to cut the paper squares . Then, I glued them onto each of the blocks.
I used 3 different designs....


Polka Dots...

and Houses.

Here is what they look like so far. I think they are going to turn out really cute. I am not sure if I am going to use the stickers for the ABC's or not. I'll post the actual finished product once I am done.

Future artist?

It has been really cold and just pretty miserable here all winter. I feel bad that my daughter has had to stay inside most of the time. I am trying to find different ways for her to express her creativity without totally destroying the house. Today we decided it would be fun to work on a collage. So, I cut up a lot of extra scrap paper I had in my craft desk and some card stock. Then I brought out the Elmer's Glue and let her go to work.

She had a lot of fun and it was interesting to see which pieces she would chose to glue. She really took her time and selected each piece very carefully. She also wanted to do it herself.(I quickly found this out as I tried to add a piece and was greeted with, "No mommy. I no want that there. My collage.") the grammar is not that great
but, she is only 2.
Here is the finished product. Pretty good I think.
Maybe I have a future artist on my hands.

Just imagine the POSSIBILITIES...
