I don't need to tell you how proud
of our grandchildren we are!
I will tell you about the projects the
girls made to enter in the
project show that is coming up
in their school district.
Oldest cutie found an amazing piece of
bark/root off of an old, dead tree that was cut down.
She was very intrigued with this and wanted to use it
for her project.
She and her Dad sanded and smoothed and worked
on this piece of wood to get it to
it was going to be a centerpiece!
She and Pops shopped for succulents and other
items to make this project amazing.
Each piece was carefully arranged....
and hot glued into just the right place.
They gathered up some very interesting moss
and lichens to use, also.
The time and creativity put into this project
really paid off.
The finished centerpiece is wonderful.
There have even been requests for several more....
friends want one for their home!
What do you think of this succulent centerpiece,
Didn't she do a nice job?
Let's change gears to fairy gardens and take a look
at another project!
This grand is all about fairies!
She has been wanting to construct a fairy garden
for a while.....so this was the perfect time!
She started out by gathering sticks....a whole bucket full....
to use in building the fairy cottage that would be in her
It's amazing what sticks, hot glue and some
card board can transform into....
She and Pops used popsicle sticks and more hot glue
and card board to make a very fun roof for the
She spent some time painting the roof, the door, and
a shutter to make them look just right!
Pops got to take another shopping trip to buy
plants that would complete the fairy garden.
Everything was ready to plant and assemble....
She was very happy with the way her
fairy garden was looking.
Here's the finished fairy garden.....
Somebody looks very pleased with their work!
Both girls worked hard on these
projects.....and Pops needs a pat on the back, too,
for knowing just when to offer help
when to step back and let our
creative grand~darlings go to town!
