Balloon Birthday Card!

Hi there! Today is my dad's birthday, so I made him a little card. Thought I'd share it with you. So quick and easy to make, and I'll be slipping football tickets in there (hence the football ballooon!). I love it!

I printed the words from my computer, then used a thin black marker to draw balloons and then some watercolour crayons.
With some football tickets too!


Easy Owl Cards

Hi there!
This week, we made adorable owl cards at school for Mother's Day. The kids loved them AND they were so easy to do!

For the body, the kids traced a circle around a roll of masking tape. Same for the belly, but only the third of a circle. And for the eyes, they traced the cap of their glue stick onto white paper! Adorable! I even brought my special shape punches to make little hearts and stars. What a success!

All so different and adorable!


Earth Day Rain Cloud

Hi there! Yesterday, April 22nd, was Earth Day! At my school we decided to turn the month of April into Earth Month. My students and I have been watching lots of little videos on the importance of recycling, the precious gift of water, and on ways to avoid over consumption of electricity and goods.

I wanted to share with you guys a beautiful craft we did after we talked about the importance of water. Every child cut out their own water drop and roll out why they thought water was important. Then we put it all together hanging from a beautiful raincloud and hung it in one of the windows in the classroom. Love it!

Writing on the importance of water: for drinking
for plants, for animals, washing, they found so many!

Looks great in our window!

DIY Polka Dot Wall

Hi there! I just finished my polka dot wall in my craft room and it's GORGEOUS!! I found this very sweet blog post that walked me through it. It took a total of about 2 hours. and the cost was under $30. It was pretty easy. I bought a 2 inch hole punch as well as 5 sheets (about $2 each) of vinyl decal paper and made about 120 dots. I used a laser level to make sure they were all lined up. That level was the most helpful tool ever, along with a pencil, eraser and ruler.

Getting there!
Matches my sweet golden accessories!


DIY Watercolour Easter Bunny Card

I hope you're all enjoying your Easter morning with your loved ones. I got up early this morning to get creative in my new craft room! I picked up some beautiful Washi tape yesterday at Michaels and it inspired me to make some Easter cards for my family. I even ended up taking out my watercolour pencils to re-create the pattern on a bunny cutout... and WOW! I'm so happy with the results!

Easter Bunny Origami

Hi again! Check out more of our Easter crafts! We did this fun origami bunny and the kids loved it! They wanted to do a whole bunch each.
We are studying how to write instructions right now in French class, so we've been reading recipes and craft instructions. We can't make food at school, but we can definitely craft, so the kids are loving the mixture of crafts and reading in French class lately. Check out this link here for the instructions. However, I ended up translating them in French for my students,  Happy crafting!

Love them!!!!
