Have you ever heard of melty beads? Let's just say they are entertaining, REALLY entertaining... if you have a little crafty girl in your house, melty beads are the way to go! We ordered this book from the school book club two weeks ago and it arrived this past week. Lilah was SO excited and has spent many hours (since the day it arrived home in her backpack) pegging beads on the little board by tracing the patterns in the book and making some very fun things; like a fire engine and a duck and tulips and a dragonfly and a dog - the possibiities are endless! On the other hand, I've been spending many hours (slight exaggeration!) ironing her beads! Yes, everytime she makes something, I have to iron the beads so they melt and stick together. Actually, the ironing is easy peasy and best of all, I get to see Lilah's happy face when the finished product has been melted together! Lilah is really big into creativity and crafts - she loves to create and draw and glue and colour and write and tape. I generally only blog about the things Lilah and I do together or what we do as a family, but Baba and Lilah have lots of 'dates' too. I just don't blog about them, because Baba doesn't take pictures, and posts without pictures (in my estimation) are rather boring! Ha! Anyway, Baba gave Lilah a choice of things they could do together yesterday and she chose a trip to the local farm in the city here. Her reasoning for wanting to go to the farm was because last time she got to do fun crafts there! Indeed, she got to do some fun crafts this time too - she arrived home with a sheep made from her handprint and real sheeps wool!! And a cow she coloured. She also learned all about eggs, met some friends and of course she got to visit the farm animals. By all accounts, it sounded like they had a wonderful time together and enjoyed their 'Daddy Daughter Day'. Here's a few more pictures of our crafty girl enjoying her melty beads and the final product - a green dog named Fred!
