Anybody remember doing these as a child....?? You know, the beads that you put on different shape templates and then you iron them so they melt together
We just love doing them....and I say "we" because I actually enjoy doing it too, with them; actually every night that they do them, I always join in and do a couple myself....of course I use the excuse that I am making one for them, but really I just like to make them for myself.... shhhh, don't tell them that I actually really like it!!
Every night, after dinner, bath and dessert, our nightly routine includes grabbing all the supplies from the craft closet...and by ALL, I mean we have 4 or 5 buckets of beads, 2 trays of beads and about 15 or 20 different templates.....but no, we aren't addicted to them!!! Anyway, we grab all the supplies, go to the kitchen counter and spend about 2 hours making bead designs. Lately, we have been getting so caught up in doing the beads, that the next thing I know it is 10pm......and yikes, school is the next day....bad mommy!!!
Joseph starting his design
Angie is just now starting to make patterns, instead of putting whatever beads she grabs
Ethan is my little artist...he gets very into placing the beads in the perfect spot, to make the perfect craft
I'm so glad we can do things like this together...our family, quality, fun time!! And actually, when everybody is "working", this is the only time when everybody is QUIET!!!!
BTW- these pictures were taken last night...and you don't see CJ there because he went to bed by 8pm.....sick!!! :(
