Oftentimes, when Nick is done with his homework in the afternoon, he wants to do a craft. Whether it’s painting, coloring or creating, he is definitely artistic, something he gets from his grandmother. It sure as heck doesn’t come from me.
Usually he ask me to do a search on the computer to find him something to make, but without a well-built arsenal of craft supplies, I don’t always have on hand what he needs for the craft he chooses. I have been working on stockpiling some basic craft supplies though, and now have a few crafts at the ready for when inspiration strikes; so the other day when he asked, I was totally ready.
With the Memorial Day weekend looming, and plans to head down the shore underway, when I saw these fireworks flowers, I knew they would be perfect. Simple to make, supplies on hand and a perfect way to celebrate the patriotic holiday. He did such a fantastic job, I know he can’t wait to see them on the dinner table this weekend … neither can I!
