While you are enjoying time with family and friends, eating good food and having good fun, I hope you'll take a moment or two to reflect upon the meaning of this day and thank those who have served and our serving our country so that we can enjoy the freedom we have been blessed with.
I've been doing some patriotic crafts with the kids this week.
Yesterday I blogged about the popsicle stick flag Sweetie Pie and I made. She loves to do crafts and made a patriotic dream catcher decoration out of pipe cleaners all by herself. I helped her make the star shapes using a star shaped cookie cutter.
I just shaped the pipe cleaner around the star shaped cookie cutter to form the hanging stars.
I also made a second attempt at the ice eggs. I wanted to make them red, white and blue so I used a bowl instead of a balloon. I filled up the bowl with water that was dyed red from food coloring. I let that bottom layer freeze. For the second layer, I used non colored water and added some army figures. Then I let that layer freeze.
