Craft Time

My kids love doing crafts. They get so excited every time there is another craft that I bring out. This time it was painting their own Dinosaur banks. David had gotten one for his birthday and we found another for Jaclyn to have one too.
 Both of them have their own plans for how they go about doing crafts, and they each had very specific idea's for how they wanted their banks to look.
 David was going for some sort of superhero/dinosaur mix. His dinosaur ended up wearing a superhero costume.
 Jaclyn's was a bit more free form "let's get as many colours together as possible" approach, but they all had to be in the "right" places. She was not impressed about suggestions to put some colours in spots that she did not want them.
This was the results of their creativity, as well as lots of fun. It was a fun morning project.

Do you like to Doodle?

I wanted to share some pictures I took this last week of my kids and their drawings. We have these little magna-doodles that we picked up last summer. Both of them love to draw over and over again and this is a wonderful way for them to draw and erase as needed. 

Jaclyn and her picture of a "funny man face"
David and his picture of Superman.
It has been amazing to see them really get into it and they have even surprised us with their skills.

Here are two picture I took this afternoon of David and Jaclyn with some of their best friends Cole and Riley. The four kids were laying on my bed as they watched "Mater Tales".

This afternoon after the movie Jaclyn took my camera to take some pictures of her own. 
These are the clearest pictures I found on my camera.
