Si Se Bondye Ki Voye...If It Is God Who Sends You

For our kid craft project this weekend, the Rileyman and I covered empty toilet paper rolls with peanut butter and then rolled them in birdseed. They hung perfectly on the forsythia bush outside. This kiddo loves any type of craft that involves feeding the birds or building birdhouses. We constantly have birdseed in the floor at our house! (which I must say, is easier to step on than legos) 

I got a little crafting in too. I finished this Journal/Scrapbook for my Art for Haiti. It has a Haitian Proverb written on it, "Si Se Bondye ki voye, Li peya fre ou." meaning "If it is God who sends you, He will pay your expenses."

I think this might be a wonderful gift for someone who is thinking about going, is about to go, or has already been on a mission trip. It is a wonderful way to capture the memories and experiences of the trip. 

I love this quote because I want to, one day, go on a mission to Haiti. I would SO LOVE to meet Madame Matilde and work along side the people of Lifeline Christian Mission.  Perhaps,one day, God will send me. 

The back of the book has a quote, "The most important things in life are not things at all."

A Glowing Good Time!

We have had a GLOWING good time this weekend! If you had seen our previous post  you would know we have discovered fun with glow sticks. And the glow stick fun continued today when we had glow bath time! We found these glow sticks at the local Dollar Tree Store. Super inexpensive, SUPER cool fun! 

The Rileyman thought it was awesome lighting up the bath bubbles. 

And for our next glowy project, we made this:

Thanks to a volcano kit from Grampa-Dude and Gramma Roses. 

This took pretty much all day to construct which was fine because it was so drizzly and wet outside. So it was a "pajama day" for us. And apparently a non-hair combing day........

And a mis-matched sock day but I digress.......

After the plaster was on we had to wait for it to dry.

And then paint it and then wait for THAT to dry.

And FINALLY it was time to erupt our volcano! 


We erupted it so many times it was just spitting out clear-ish bubbles but it was SO fun and super cool.

This is what was going on during all that volcano construction waiting time. The Rileyman discovered my giant sketch pads and went to town drawing pictures on a large scale. 

He also tested to see if he could lure in birds with a bowl of peanut butter and bird seed. 

And he did. 

Hope yall had a great weekend!

Soda Bottle Night Lights-kid craft

 To make soda bottle night lights, all you need are some clear bottles filled water, food coloring and some party glow sticks. We used the glow necklaces for this project. They have tons of these glow things at our Dollar Tree store. 

You can use just clear water but for us it was fun to add some drops of color and REALLY cool watching the color slowly drop to the bottom!

Then just activate your glow sticks and drop them in! 

This was a very cool, very easy, very inexpensive project and the Rileyman was very much excited to have some cool night lights in his room.
