Day Two: Cookies & Flower Craft

So on day #2 of summer vacation, Jack got a disgusting stomach flu. Good times, good times!!! So, while he was sacked out on the couch, EJ & I made break & bake cookies for her project of the day. I didn't take pics as I was juggling her & Liv, but I assure you they were yummy sugar cookies! Here's a pic of her ecstatic to be baking with Daddy a few months ago...


Well, while EJ was napping, Jack woke up and decided he was ready for HIS project. I had nothing, so I hacked together this weaving project with paper plates & leftover yarn from Grandma. I had seen it to make sunflowers (and it was MUCH fancier) in the June/July issue of Family Fun magazine.

Here he is getting started (in his makeshift couch bed)...


Close-up...he picked up weaving fast!


And the finished project (we have it taped to the mantle)...


Jack completed one more that day (all yellow yarn) and has been working on a blue one since then that is still uncompleted. Jack is known for taking on WAY too much (he insisted on doing 3) and then never finishing, but also never being willing to give up or quit a project! I guess that's a good thing???

Girlfriend, you are on FIRE!! Those are some awesome projects!! I may have to give the weaving one to Meg to tackle. She'd love that. Your blog posts remind me that I'm supposed to blog about my kids' Summer Assignments, too! Schwupps. Should do that. . .
