* Elmer's Kids Craft Camp Giveaway Week!



This week I'm so excited to share our love of crafting
with all of you as part of our two week-long 
Elmer's Kids Craft Camp!
Elmer's glue sent us this awesome crate full of crafty goodness
to see what we and some crafty friends could come up with.


And....fun for you too! 

We're giving away a 
One Adult and Two Kid Craft Camp kits
to one of my lucky readers!!



This awesome crate arrived packed with bundles of craft supplies
it was like Christmas in July! 
The girls and I actually squealed - art supplies have that kind of effect on us.

I'll be posting all of our fun craft projects this week 
but first I want to show you what we did with the crate.
It was too fun not to do something with... like a blank, wooden canvas!

We decided to turn it into a Nature Discovery Box
for our Nature Shelves in our family room
(next to our homemade Rock Museum).


First, the girls decorated some simple wooden hands 
from the craft store (with permanent markers included in the kit)


We added them to the lid with a dab of Elmer's Wood Glue. 


Then, we got to work decorating the sides of the crate
with the Gel Pens they sent us, 
along with some stamps from our art studio,
and the permanent markers. 

We chose a Four Seasons Theme!


"E" decorating the Summer side 
(my favorite side.) 


Close up of her adorable snails and mushroom!


The Fall Side.
Leaves, Leaves, and more Leaves!


The Winter side
Chickadees, holly leaves, and snow flakes.


The Spring side,
check out "E"s awesome bird ; )


We loaded up the inside with: 
Sea Shells,
Binoculars,
Eye Loupes, 
Geodes, 
Nature Guides,
homemade Leaf Press, 
and our Bird Song Machine


The girls love it and their mama does too!
