My daughter Lilly is not totally into arts and crafts like I wish she was. The only thing she cares about is playing. outside. every second. of every day. Don’t get me wrong i loveeeee the fact that that child will spend hours running around the neighborhood, hiding in trees, building forts out of anything she can find, jumping on the trampoline and selling lemonade even when it is 30 degrees out. The total number of hours watching t.v. this week is probably close to none (now my other child is a TOTALLY different story). It’s hard to get Lilly to sit down and focus on anything, let alone a craft. She is completely and totally my husband all made over. I went to high school with my husband and I remember thinking dangggggg wonder what HIS kids are going to be like. That boy couldn’t sit still to save his life and was ALWAYS in trouble. Funny how life unfolds.
One Saturday morning Lilly rolled out of bed and said, “Mom I want to do a craft with you.” What!!!!!! I jumped up so fast I knocked over the table and my coffee. No worries, I will clean that up later, my girl and I have some crafting to do. Nothing makes me happier than making stuff. But making stuff with my girl is just about the best thing in the world.
I asked her if she had any ideas, or projects she wanted to work on. She wasn’t sure so I pulled out the computer and pulled up Pinterest. Oh how I love thee. I have a board called kiddos crafts that includes ideas and projects I think the kids might enjoy. I pulled up that board and in a matter of seconds she knew what she wanted to do. Fairy Dust!!
|This was the picture on Pinterest that grabbed Lilly’s attention. I can’t seem to find the original source to find where it came from but isn’t it a beautiful picture! No wonder my little mover and shaker was sitting still!|
|Cut off the top of the glow stick and dump into the glass jar and add as much glitter as you want.|
|Once you have added your glitter and glow stick stuff, put on the lid and shake it up.|

Thank you God for my life.
