April 22nd is EARTH DAY!! I am hoping to share more ideas on simple ways to reuse things around your house for art projects for the kids! :)
The first project is embellishing some 3-D glasses. The hubby and I went to a 3-D movie not long ago and we both agreed we should save the glasses for something fun. (The movie theaters I attend do have a recycling box for the glasses which is awesome.)
How adorable are those faces?? I think next time we need to ask for kid sizes so the glasses will stay on their faces.
Here are the simple steps to creating your Recycled- Reused pair of 3-D Glasses.
1. Take the lens out.
2. Pick out your supplies. My 5 year old was allowed to use nail polish while my son and friend were only allowed to use sticky gems and stickers that we had left over from a Sticky Mosaics Project.
3. Ready set let the kids create!
Maybe you have some other recycled items you can add to make your sunglasses even more hip! Bottle caps? String? Lace? Ribbon?
Here are a few more ideas on ways we have reused items that would have otherwise been thrown in the trash.
Keep your eyes peeled for more recycling fun!

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
