All the big kids and Dad were gone doing various things today so I decided the little girls and I would have some fun.
Inspired by this blog http://filthwizardry.blogspot.com/ we decided to make some fairy/pet shop/polly pocket houses.
The girls were delighted, I don’t often do art projects centered around only them.

First we found containers and cut doors and windows. Then the girls got to work painting.

It takes a lot of concentration to build a fairy house 😉

The finished products
(note to self… don’t stick out your tongue to get the kids attention)

In action

Perfect weather, perfect scenery, who could ask for more? We packed up our lunch and art supplies and headed out to go hiking. I got a ton of wonderful pictures and the kids had a blast. Fall is truly my favorite time of year.

I’ll share a couple pictures although really I’m tempted to share a ridiculous amount… so here’s the link if you want to see more, just to make me feel better ;).

Starting out the hike all the kids checking out a Beaver’s Dam.

About half way through the hike Joe came and joined us, he snuck past us and hid in a cave and jumped out and scared the kids…. the look on Amelia’s face was PRICELESS.

A decent picture of all the kids on the bridge.

Everyone hard at work

Daddy’s Girl

What a great big brother!

OK OK I’m done…but you should really look at them all because there are a LOT more great pictures!!

I have been having the younger girls cut out their worksheets at the end of the week and making simple lapbooks with them. It’s a quick easy way for them to remember what we’ve gone over and it keeps up with all the pictures they don’t want thrown away.
I have found Avery more than once looking at her’s repeating what she’s learned to herself… which makes me very happy!!

Here they are all together ( please note Anna helped with Averys with a green marker)
