Barnwood Planter Box

Well it is that time of year again to give a big Thank You to all of our teachers who have spent many hours with our kids and taught them throughout the year. It truly is one of my favorite gifts to give as I know how hard they work everyday.  

This year all my boys teachers are getting these cute little planter boxes made out of barnwood. 

A fun little project to and the kids loved picking out which flowers their teachers would like.

Craft Party

This past weekend we finally celebrated my sons 4th birthday, it was about a month late but never the less we finally got a chance to do it. 

Birthday parties are a pretty big thing in our house, I mean really who wouldn't want someone to make a big deal about their birthday. We decided on an arts and crafts party and as they were mostly four year old it is something they all enjoyed.

For me the biggest part of the party is the cake so I decided to do this art inspired cake. 

With the help of my kids we came up with these canvas inspired cookies.  If you come to one of my parties you will always see cookies that go with the theme. 

For our crafts we got these cute little bird houses and made it easy for the kids to decorate with felt markers and stickers.  I also bought some little canvas's for the kids and each one got to put their painted hand print on them.

As their parting gift they got to take home their birdhouses and canvas hand prints.  I was also able to find these cute little buckets, I collected some paint chip cards to decorate them and filled them with some goodies. 

All the kids went home tired and sugared up so you know it was a good party.
