Saturday Fun

Last Saturday, I took Noah & Sophia to Lowe's to do the craft. Ted usually takes them (when he can), but he was out of state. CLICK HERE to see what crafts are coming up. It's completely free to take your kids, they do it twice a month on Saturday. You don't need to sign up online, you just show up during the late morning hours. They say the project is for age 5 - 10 (or something like that), but Sophia does great at it (she's 3 1/2). Each kiddo gets an apron, a pair of goggles, and a nice patch that shows what craft they did. You collect the patches and sew them on the apron. That reminds me, I have two patches each to sew on before the next clinic on the 26th! This week they made ant houses (ants not included).

Sophia is such a serious carpenter!

Working hard, right alongside her brother.

Noah takes his work seriously too!

Adjusting the safety glasses

Sanding the ant house

The finished product!

All this fun, and for FREE! Pictures from their Home Depot craft (first Saturday of each month) coming up. I'm terribly behind on blogging!
