Amy's Sketchbook

Loving these sketches of Tibi.

Au Revoir

Tomorrow I am heading out of town for a trip to visit my sister! Lots of fun is in store for our five days of sister time. I am already dreaming of the delicious food, plentiful shopping and secrets sharing. Blog posts cannot be guaranteed during this stint away, so if you do not hear from me for a few days, have a fantastic week!

Treat yourself to something sweet today. I'm headed to the bakery early this morning to surprise my kiddos with sprinkle donuts.

Kids' Fall Tree

Fall Handprint Tree

What you will need:
yellow paint
orange paint
red paint
brown paint
paintbrushes
x-long white construction paper

Step 1:
Paint a brown tree trunk on the white construction paper.
Step 2:
Paint your child's hand yellow, orange, and red. Don't worry if the paint mixes, it turns out even prettier!
Step 3:
Place handprints at the top of the tree trunk to form the leaves of the tree. Be sure to re-paint every time you make more leaves.
Result: Very happy kiddos!

Tip:
Do not attempt to paint these while wearing a cream J. Crew cardi.
