A LOVEly Purse!

We decided to make purses last week. Really easy; just cut out two pieces of construction paper into heart shapes, punch holes around the edges, and "sew" the two pieces together using yarn. It's sure to be the hit accessory this coming season...just look at Munchkin!

Bucket Fillers

Ever read the book Fill A Bucket? If not, it's a must read. It teaches children and adults about being kind to others by "filling their buckets". In honor of the bucket fillers, we decided to make our own paper buckets for filling. It was really easy! We simply cut out bucket shapes out of paper, colored and decorated them, and hung them up! Now we have a great reminder to be kind to each other, and we have fun trying to decide what we will do to fill someone's bucket. It's been fun to write down compliments and put them in each others buckets!
