Spring flower fun

an old empty egg carton, canvas and paint

Rain Rain go aways come back another day

Where I live our weather is somewhat unpredictable…
It’s always good to have some indoor fun lined up when our “random” showers come in. I don’t want to complain about the inconsistencies of our weather because I remember the riddle

When the clouds roll in keep your eyes on the beautiful flower they will bring with this fun activity.
You will need:

an old empty egg carton, canvas and paint

Cut the egg portion out of the egg carton to make a flower… IMG_0060

Then on wax paper, I put several squirts of paint and let my kids mix them together with the flower—

With help stamp the canvas…. Do this several times until your canvas has as many as you want.

Then, hot glue the “stamp” you made out of the egg carton in the center of the flower and add a stem… let dry on a flat surface

If you’re a busy mom like me, you might feel overwhelmed by the rainy days you have… I’m speaking more figuratively than literally. I know the days all to well where the laundry is piled high, the sink is full of dishes and my youngest just figured out how to get into the cheerios and now they are all over the kitchen floor!

Another “rainy” day is not what I need! I try to remember that there will always be dishes to do and laundry to fold- but the precious moments of life pass far too quickly. My son just entered kindergarten and there are so many times that I wish I would have laid in those cheerios and taught him how to make snow angels- NOW that would have been a memory! Always remember that you are the first love your child has every felt…
