5 Bright Spots

Friday, May 17th, 2013

1.  Helping Little Hand’s Eye Spy Cake makes me happy. What a fabulous, creative cake idea!

2. These puppets made out of recycled and reused materials look SO fun to make and also lots of fun to play with too.

3. Author Ben Zackheim’s third Shirley Link book is now released!  The extra awesome news is that he is offering it for free today (5/17)! I’ve mentioned before that my daughter LOVES the Shirley Link series.

4. This Handmade Solar System in a Box is a gorgeous way to teach children about outer space.

5.  Just say YES! to Toilet Paper Tube Cars.  Oh my!

Happy Friday.

1. Jessica at scrumdilly-do posted a simple, creative, fun paint chip plant markers tutorial.  Not only does this reuse materials, but it also encourages children to plant some seeds!

2. These egg carton boats are adorable!  via crafty crow

3. I’m kind of obsessed with the thought of making these superhero hand cuffs for my daughters.  Made using toilet paper tubes, they are simply magnificent!

4. Mmmmmm. Chocolate Flowerpot Cakes! What a sweet way to celebrate the earth and its flowers!

5. Amy offers some artistic inspiration for making homemade wrapping paper out of painted newspaper.  Pretty!

Happy weekend!

1. Amanda’s recipe for Fairy Dust is the perfect sparkly, sweet smelling something for hours of magical play.  My Hazel is very excited to make a little pot of her very own! And, honestly, I’m kind of excited to dab a bit onto my hair and shoulders.

2. I love the bright colors and interesting textures of Dana’s Spaghetti Box Feathers. Cereal boxes are one of my favorite materials, so these speak to my heart.  And, oh my, the feather necklaces are so sweet!

3. Homemade Snow Dough!

4. These beautiful snowflakes made from twigs and bits of nature. Via The Crafty Crow.

5. This oatmeal cake looks amazing. Yum!

Happy weekend!
