Crafting with the boys

I love a fall day when you don't have anything particular to do. Zack and I painted together this morning after breakfast. I took the opportunity to design our jam labels (okay I get that we only have two jars, but next year, oh man, next year we are really going to get into canning!!!)


Zack's masterpiece


Since I was near the fridge I took a pic of this little "Very Hungry Caterpillar" Zack and I made last year. We made them in all different colors for our family for Christmas gifts. It's easy to do: you just need craft sticks, pom poms, glue, goo goo eyes, and a small piece of pipe cleaner for the antennae.


Nate occaisionally takes up a brush, but it is more, hmmm, representational?


We took the boys to the park this morning, and I collected some leaves to do a project together:


They are napping now, but I am totally enjoying this weekend with my family.

  1. Hey Shannon, thanks for stopping by my blog! I love the pretty fall leaves in your last post. I like your jam label, too. I'd love to start canning things too but I don't know if I have room for another hobby! Hmm, maybe next year!
