"They looked to Him, and were radiant." Psalm 34
To recreate that fun theme use a small kiddie pool fill with homemade bubble recipe, and tons of wands, homemade bubble wands, hula hoops, and plastic pop rings. You can make bubble wands out of wire hangers also. My husband made me one out of copper with glass marbles etc and its an angel . So cute !
I have found over the years the pure joy of summer. I enjoy the warm summer memories of when I was little or doing things with my children in the lazy dazy days of summer. By the way can any of you hula hoop good? I need another lesson. I have to tell you one of the best summers my children had was at Ben and Jerry's ice cream festival ( yearly picnic). Oh we had so much fun. The best though was the bubbles. Oh my it was a blast.
We love making ice cream or sweet pinwheels. We love
using these for favors or part of our art parties. To
see how to make pinwheels click here. How to
make magic ice cream in 5 minutes with
a freezer bag click here.
I have found over the years the joy has been in
creating the memories. We love doing theme parties .
My children have loved these over the years and my
daughter who is in college still talks of her favorite a garden
party, complete with lady bug cupcakes and bee candy
made out of wheat germ and almonds. She made the candy
for a college project and that still makes me laugh.
Sir Nick still loves these kind of adventures.
His favorite is being a bug detective in the butterfly garden
or playing in his fort. I love collecting art magazines, project books and
gleaning from all your inspiring fun , creative moms and fellow bloggers.
Please leave some tips for us all and share your memories.
Taking the time to be creative with homemade picnic baskets, forts,
going to old time festivals, parades, the beach, using lump clay,
or a homemade puppet theater have been some of our favorites over the years.
This next week I will be making more pizzas for our second art park we are hosting, get things for canning and just having fun. So make bubbles, eat chocolate, make lemonade shakers in mason jars, catch fire flys. If you make smores can you invite me? If it has to be healthy make mango ice cream.... I have a lovely recipe .
Smiles and Love,
