Crafts with Grand Kids

 Hi Crafters, It's Independence Day here in America. Hope you all are having a good day. 

Going to a Cookout later today. One of the things that I will be taking is a Lemon Cake. My niece Amy is coming from Illinois. She is going to be so excited that I made it. I thought she was going to cry when I didn't bring it for the Christmas party.

Since School has been out for the Summer. My Grand Children and I have been spending a lot of time together. So I have been thinking of things that they can do.

So I decided to have them make Flags that they could hang up for the 4th. So here they are.

They were made by gluing pop sickle sticks together. ( I was in charge of the hot glue gun.) They painted them in Red, White and Blue acrylic paints.Let them dry over night and then stamped the stars using a star stamp that I have in Stampin Up Whisper White Ink.

I think they turned out really Cute and It's something they can hang up every year. They had a good time making them.

I also wanted to share with you,something me and my Grand Daughter made the other day. She ask me to help her make a Gum Ball Machine for her Barbies. (She Loves her Barbies, Monster High Dolls and Ever After Dolls).

She had seen somewhere on the Internet that you can use things around the house to make one. So we gathered up all the things and got to putting it together. 

 Tah Dah!!!! There you have a Gum Ball Machine. My Grand Daughter Scarlett Loves It and she didn't just want me to take a picture of It. She wanted me to take a picture of It with one of her Monster High Dolls. 

Can you tell that  her Monster High Doll Loves her new Gum Ball Machine? Scarlett and I did have alot of Fun making It and we are already planning our next project. 

 Here are the things we used to make It-
Plastic Gum Ball Container
White Button
Silver Metal Button 
One Big Ear Ring for the Base (Looks like from the 80s)
Coffee Stir Straw
Red Bottle Cap
2 white Beads- One is glued on the Inside of the bottle cap to hold straw
Tiny Pom Poms
Hot Glue Gun

Well I hope that you enjoyed seeing the things that my Grand Children have been making. I think one of the most Important things you can give a child, Is your Time.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy 4th of July to you all.
