Summer Fort Making

Our summer fort making has begun!  Stay tuned for our transformation, but we simply "upcycled" some old curtains and reused some flags from Ava's first birthday party.  We added a couple of details, picked some flowers from the garden and the kids made themselves at home!  We'll add a few more touches to the fort throughout the summer.  Here is just a glimpse of what we have started!  I'll post some more outdoor fort ideas to keep your creative juices going this summer!

Got Junk? - Part II

Our invention box has moved indoors!  With the weather turning to 10 degrees, I needed to get our invention area arranged for the kids.  The invention materials used to sit in a box that would get pulled out every now and again during the cold winter months.  This seemed completely backwards to me!  When we get into a creative state of mind, we need to have the materials available!
I recycled a toy box that we were already using and added all of the invention materials to it.  Where did I get the invention materials?  I gathered things that may typically get thrown away, such as:  empty paper towel tubes, toilet paper tubes, string, pumps from lotion bottles, covers to bottles, cardboard that comes in packaging, etc.  Just make sure to rinse any items that have food or lotion on them before you add them to the box.  I then have a supply area that contains scissors, masking tape, scotch tape, glue, string and duct tape.  I set it up in a designated area and let the kids dive into the box!  I'll post a few of the inventions that the kids created.  Enjoy!
