How to Make a butterfly: Sofia’s Crafts for kids intsructional video #001

 

One of our regular morning routines, is “craft time”. After watching some you tube videos on how to make some simple crafts, we have mostly done the ever loved butterflies. For months we have been perfecting them, each of them made with care and love. Most of these butterflies have been given to loved ones as cards or just a special gift. Some have been made to keep forever. Sofia now is able to share her lovely morning glory with others who might want to give it a try. Hope you enjoy her first instructional video.  shot  on  iphone.

Let us know how your butterflies turn out!!!

Our first snowfall: 2010 Nov

 

 

We awoke this morning and quickly geared up for Sofia’s early morning swimming lessons. On our way out the door, something so tempting loured us into the park. Our first snowman of the year HAD to be constructed. Sofia wanted to make a big sister and little brother snowkids. They even had to be holding hands. She, and her soon arriving neighborhood girlfriends played  wonderfully together.



Sofia learned several lesson about snow play. Most importantly: 1. Don’t eat yellow or brown snow. 2. Don’t assume that everyone is participating in your snowball fight. With a quick break for ballet and lunch, we were at it again, this time making a polynesian snowlady. Accesorized to the fullest, with natural plant trimmings, donated by friendly neighbors. Sofia of course wouldn’t have it any other way. The sun went down as we walked home, now on our second set of mittens, watching the blazing pink mountains. Sofia now sits under the covers with her Mama defrosting her little feet.
