Today we decided to get in the spirit of Summer and properly welcome in the 7th month of the year by having a little red, white, and blue craft time. I've been seeing this idea all over the web, and thought it would be a fun craft for an {almost} 7 year old and 3 {almost} 14 month olds ~ and it did not disappoint! It was fun for all {including me} and we have some beautiful patriotic hand and footprint artwork to cherish forever. Best I can tell, the idea originated here.

I showed Taylor the picture and let him do it himself; he really liked getting to have one of his own.

Here's the babies final masterpiece. They, of course, required a little more assistance.


When Taylor was done with his, he took on a second task of being my photographer to capture some of the action for me.


Don't laugh at my blanket curtain, we had an unfortunate disaster with the blinds recently- It's in the back of the house, if that makes it any better...




Then it's playtime!!
