Since my daughter had informed me that the girls, ages 6 and almost 4, had recently discovered the joy of arts and crafts, I planned a couple of crafty projects for us to do during the week, starting with the decoration of the birthday cakes (see post from 4/15/2017).
On Sunday, after we'd returned home from the birthday party (see post from 4/15/2017 again), we made our next craft project, a yarn octopus,
First I gave the girls the job of measuring and cutting the the yarn into 12 strands,
...a task they found so enjoyable that I had to let them cut many more strands than needed.
I ended up having to wrap more yarn around the ball to cover it.
The next day we colored Easter eggs,
...which made the job of dipping the eggs into and retrieving from the dye cups exponentially less precarious.
Over the course of the week we also discovered the fun of coloring in the newspaper pictures,
There's always time and inspiration for drawing, right?
