I've been busy this week!
Sunday School class. I had been wanting to make some
bunting for a while, and this was a good excuse.
Her colors are (obviously) green and brown.
out the baby's name for decoration.
(Oh, and I made that brown dip in front and the white dip in back!)
for a while, and now I had some time to do it!
I made him this pretty unattractive rice shaker a long time ago.
I wanted to use the same idea, but make it way prettier.
So I gathered my materials: rice, honey bear bottle, food coloring, baggies, and rubbing alcohol. (Nope it's not in the picture.)
I put about three tablespoons of rice in each bag, then added a whole bunch of food coloring (like 10-20 drops depending on which color it was) and a little less than a tablespoon of rubbing alcohol. Shake shake shake it! Then put it back in the bowls to dry out for a few hours.
Aren't those colors just beautiful?
Way better than the old shaker!
I bought a couple of sets of buttons at Hobby Lobby
(the crayons, bugs, and sports balls) and then scavenged
my old box of buttons for the other stuff.
and collected some more things. I got a bag of
colored blocks at Hobby Lobby and wrote his
name out, then got another package of crayons, plus
all the vehicles. Then grabbed some more
things out of my button box.
This time I just used plain white rice. I was
going to use white sand, but that stuff's expensive!
I like this way better, and Jake can find things
in it. I will take the picture of what's in
it and put it on the back again.
