We’ve been out enjoying the snowy weather this past week…

I don’t know about you, but we thought that being able to start Christmas break off with snow angels was pretty cool!

Any fun wintery creativity happening at your place this week?

We just finished another cute craft from Kiwi Crate this week.

This week it was paper jellyfish with glow stickers. They turned out really cute and the kids can make them travel up and down on pull strings attached to the back. They had great fun racing their creations up and down the patio door!

Hope you’ve been having a great week!

I decided to try something new in the crafts department with the kiddos – I signed them up for 6 months with Kiwi Crate.

They were so excited with our first crate that came this past week! It came with their names on the box and featured “glow creatures”. They decided to make the glow worms first.

The 11-year-old came back from a visit to her grandparents with a surprise…

A lovely acrylic painting of a mountain on canvas. I am told that she worked really hard on it and that she chose a mountain especially for me because of my love for snow and the mountains.

We plan on taking it to the craft store to find a frame for it very soon!

We had some fun this past week with printable autumn and Halloween-themed coloring pages. You can find a ton of them just by doing a Google image search.

The oldest picked this one from Honking Donkey Kid’s Coloring Pages and Activity Sheets website.

Sometimes just a simple activity like coloring can make for great family together-time.

Hope you had a fun week!
