Kid Craft: Paper Sun Catchers

Hi friends, how are you all doing?  To be honest, I’m feeling drained.  We started the week with my daughter’s birthday and ended it by saying goodbye to our extremely loving and loyal family dog. The emotional ups and downs have taken it out of me and I find I don’t have much to say today.

So how about a joyful little kid craft instead?  These paper sun catchers have been a HUGE hit with S and C and their bright colors can’t help but bring a smile to my face.  I’m over at eHow mom sharing the full instructions here.

Happy weekend everyone – see you on the other side.

I am really sorry to hear about your dog. :-( Our black lab is 11 and I know it won’t be long before we are in the same boat.

On a happier note– I absolutely love these flowers and this craft. I am definitely going to try this out with Sweet Pea. Thanks for sharing it!

Thank you so much Sara. Our dog was part Lab (he was a shelter dog when we adopted him as a puppy so we don’t know much more) – they really are the best!
