I don’t know what happened to the pictures in my last post, but I don’t feel like dorking around with it, so it will probably stay that way; at least until I can find some time to try and fix it. Oh well…


May Day, Cinco de Mayo, and a Month Old!

For Mayday we made paper plate baskets, and watercolor coffee filter flowers.

Our supplies:

  • coffee filters
  • green pipe cleaners
  • watercolors, brushes, water
  • flimsy paper plates
  • stapler
  • assorted flower stickers

First, we watercolored the coffee filters and hung our “flowers” out to dry.  Then we made and decorated the baskets.

The finished products:


The Cinco de Mayo flag idea I got from here.

BTW, my son took the final pics. of the flags; that’s his shadow you see.

And now, for little man, at one month:
