C.R.A.F.T. **Takeover #3**

*** Takeover #3 ***
Let's welcome Jamie from C.R.A.F.T. as she is the next to takeover my blog for the month of November. Are you wondering what's going on? Check out this post where I explain what's happening. A very special thank you to ALL my friends who have so willingly stepped in to TAKEOVER my blog for a couple weeks :)


I 'm super excited to barge in on Bella's lovely blog today and share a fun kid project...

What kid doesn't love shaving cream? This project is sure to be a winner and can be done with any age. First read the book: Polar Bear, Polar Bear What do you Hear? Discuss where polar bears live? What they eat? Why there is fur looks white? National Geographic for Kids has a lot of great information. Then, make a polar bear head with stuff around your house!
Materials: Shaving cream, glue 2 face pads, 2 googly eyes, black craft ball, paper plate
Here is how to make the  3D puff paint:
Add equal-ish parts of shaving cream and glue in a large mixing bowl. Add a handful of batting to the bowl to give the polar bear texture. Spoon on to paper plate and add accessories. We used 2 face pads for the ears, 2 googly eyes, and a black craft ball for the nose. The side view really shows you the 3D effect!
Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?
Be sure to check out all of C.R.A.F.T.'s kid friendly projects, our kid stuff board on pinterest, and C.RA.F.T. on facebook! Good luck with your move, Bella :) 

**Totally adorable Jamie, THANK YOU**
My kids actually love that book, so it will be super exciting for them to create their very own polar bear. 
Good luck with the giveaway Jamie!!

My photo
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
