Clay Dish

I feel so horrible.  Hasan made this for his teacher.  For the first 2 months of Senior Kindergarten he has had a supply teacher.  I was taking pictures for the blog of this dish.  I wanted to try to get rid of the shadows and while I was doing this I dropped the camera on the dish.  I am so upset.  I can't believe I did that.  I've tried gluing it together but it looks horrible and is not staying together.  I think Hasan is going to be upset.  We have no time to make a new dish and no time to go shop for something else.....

Scrunched Tissue Paper Flowers

This is a very easy flower I had Hasan make.  You take small squares of tissue paper, scrunch them up into a small ball and then glue them on a pre-cut shape.  I had a bunch of streamers so I just cut small squares out of that.  I found that to be much faster than cutting squares out of a big sheet of tissue paper.  We also stuck some adhesive magnets on the so we could put them on the fridge.

Pom Pom Gumball Machine

Welcome to my blog!  I am always trying to find things to keep my boys (Hasan, age 4 & Bilal, 20 months) busy.  I have a hard time thinking of things for them to do...well mostly things for Hasan to do.  He loves arts and crafts and I feel bad that I am not very creative.  Sometimes I get lazy and don't give them enough things to do.  I know a lot of other mom's have the same problem so I thought I would share the things we do at home and to give me some more motivation to do more activities with the kids.  This picture wasn't taken with any intention of posting on a blog which explains why it's not very good.
