tissue paper flock

It's a rainy Sunday morning. 

My niece and nephew are here, bringing the "child aged 7 and under" count to 5.  I figured a little art project was in order to keep them entertained for a while and out of the mud lakes puddles outside.  I had seen these little tissue paper suncatchers on Pinterest and thought they'd be a great way to bring a little color to the day.

My niece is a natural artist, and the bird house, flower, and little sack of bird seed were her ideas.  So clever!

I think this little flock will have to stay for a while.

Our forecast calls for 2-4" of snow tonight so I'm going to need all the colorful flowers I can get.

Have a wonderful Sunday, everyone.

A sweet craft for little ones. I am in Florida and would gladly let you have some of our warmth and sunshine today...just close your eyes and see the palm trees against the blue sky. I in turn would love to see some snow!

This looks like a fun project. I think I'll let my students do this to add some spring decorations to our classroom. Thank you for the idea : )

These look stunning, such a talented bunch.A very clever idea. It will surely bring lots of cheer to your snowy conditions. It's rather chilly here too, back to winter temps?

Maryann - ahhhh I can almost feel it!

Julie - it's been chilly at night here, but hopefully mother nature is just getting this chill out of her system now so we can start spring in earnest.

Thank you so much, everyone!
