Silly socks and more crafting fun

Yesterday was silly sock day at B's soccer practice. We decided to decorate B's socks with felt faces and silk leaf fairies. He won some tie dyed socks for his creativity. The cold, rainy weather has kept us inside and we've been doing more fall crafts. We made these trees with a water color background and then made the trees by blowing the paint around.

We used some square and triangle paper cut-outs for the leaves.

J and B also finished up their leaf salt dough decorations.

J remembered making houses out of paper in second grade and wanted to try this out again.

Here's a happy little cat decorated by B.

Lastly, we strung up some peanuts for the squirrels.


  1. Very nice crafts! And your cats ought to like your squirrel traps, I mean feeders! And what do you mean cold and rainy?? I saw SNOW on at least 2 peaks today!

  2. Andrea, I started to look towards Mt. Mansfield this afternoon to see if there was snow and then turned my head away-I just couldn't bear to see snow!

  3. Too funny! The toll road was closed because of all the snow! I think we are going to have to grin and bear it:)

  4. So nice projects! I love simlpy and decorative works :) Thank you for inspiration.

  5. I like those tree paintings. The snow up so high is so pretty at this time of year.
