Wow it's so nice to get back to our projects. We had taken a little break for a while to get prepared for the Bigg birthday party but now that things are back to normal we can get on with welcoming the spring season! We've got big plans for this spring and hopefully can share them all with you as we hop along in this time of new life and growth and CHOCOLATE (Yes it's all about the easter candy, yum)!
The last few days we have done a few things so I'm just going to put them all in this one blog. Biggs made a beautiful butterfly with his hand prints, a lovely spring flower from a paper plate, and today we made a nice little bird house/feeder.

For his flower we used a paper plate and the marble painting technique. I taped down the plate put some marbles with paint and let him try to figure out a method to get the paint on the plate. It's challenging because the plate is raised so he had a lot of fun trying different directions and speeds. 

For our birdhouse/feeder I had an empty plastic container and cut a hole on two sides and left one side with a ledge and we added a little deck for the birds. To decorate we painted it with glue and put some tissue paper. 

This is adorable! Biggs got his own camera for his birthday and he told me "mom! I have to get my camera and take a picture of my project!".
