Craft Time

Rebekah loves crafts! She jumps at any chance she gets to be creative. Our local Wal-Mart is under a major remodel. They have tables and tables of clearance items and a lot of it is craft stuff. They got rid of the fabric section :( and they are making way for Martha Stewart. While I love Martha as much as any other craft addict it just seems kind of sad that all crafts are now coming pre-packaged with directions. Where is the creativity?

Anyways back to the point of the post...they had a box of of PERLER beads. You remember those don't you? The ones where you put them on a pegged board and then iron the shape so it melts together. Well, I remember them. These little things were a staple craft when I worked at day cares throughout my college days. Bekah ,at first, was not that enthused until we ironed the first one and then she was hooked. She sat at the coffee table for 2 hours making little........ well...... "shapes". :) She loves them! And mommy is excited because it only cost me $3.00!

  1. Did you call me this morning to go to Wal-Mart? I missed it??!! I'm sure Mikayla would have loved to join in the fun. She loves those things too but I never knew what they were called. Next time we'll have to make it a play date.
