Rainbows Everywhere

Our day started with window stars. I've seen these all over blogworld lately, and they are so pretty. Too pretty to resist. The best price I found on the kite paper was at Palumba. And we followed GardenMama's instructions. It was lots of fun and the kids really got into it.

Instead of window stars, Miah made crowns.

We finished the rainbow rug for the log cabin.

And even had a rainbow phonics game - just some words the kids needed to work on.

And today was the annual AHG Father/Daughter Banquet. Very sweet.

  1. Oh my goodness - so many beautiful things there!
    The stars are absolutely gorgeous. And the crowns.
    The shavings - wow! That must have taken hours to make that much. It always takes us forever.
    We made hearts like that last year (but pinks, oranges,and reds),and l loved them!
    Painting those 3d puzzles - beautiful!
    A fabulous post, surely.

  2. We used the large crayons and it didn't take too long. Each pile is one crayon. I wasn't going to do so many colors but since it was going quickly, we did more.
