Alma 32:41

...Nourish the tree as it beginneth to grow, by your faith with great diligence, and with patience, looking forward to the fruit thereof, it shall take root; and behold it shall be a tree springing up unto everlasting life.

Saturday Family Crafts

We did two crafts yesterday! Each only took about ten minutes(or less) which was the extent of Kaden's attention span anyway. He enjoyed doing them and enjoys even more seeing his artwork decorating the wall. :)

First we did Salad Spinner art. I've seen this on a few blogs and have been so excited to try it. As long as you use non-toxic, water-soluable paint (your typical crayola), you will not damage your salad spinner. I knew that Kaden would love the spinning. First I traced the shape of the bottom of the inner bowl on a piece of paper and cut it out. I mixed a little poster point with water and helped Kaden use a plastic spork to pout paint on the paper. I didn't get pictures of that part since Kaden needed my help to do it. I was right- he loved spinning and then seeing the image he created.

Spinning as fast as he can get it to go....
The in progress result

I love the final result. I just need to decide how to frame them and where to hang them. :)
Maybe I will make this Mobile with them.

And here is the Turkey that we made. I got the idea and the tutorial at No Time for Flashcards
Kaden enjoyed coloring the plate and gluing on the feathers. It was really simple and fun. I hung it on the wall as part of our fall decorations. :) Such fun!
