Safety Kits & Shadow Art Projects

 Both of the girls decided to complete the shadow art project.  First, they picked a wood picture frame to be painted.  They both ended up picking a frame with a cut-out heart in the middle.  Erica chose hot pink paint and Ashlin chose a aqua blue color.
 Then the project involved cutting scrap paper into strips and gluing them on a piece of black card stock in the shape of the frame opening.  Then cut around the heart shape.  Next, they cut out and glued a star burst shape in the middle of the heart and put this in the frame.

 Another project the girls completed was making bicycle first aid kits.  They covered an old plastic VHS tape case with duct tape and put a cross on the cover in another color of duct tape.  Then they filled the case with first aid supplies (bandages, gauze pads, tape, list of phone numbers, etc.) to take with you on a bike ride.
Two more finished projects.  Ashlin has another art project to be completed at home.  She ran out of time on project day since her sewing project took so long, but it is an easy art project to be hung on a wall in her room.

Take care,


  1. I love the first aid kit idea! So smart to use a VHS container.

  2. What great little crafters! Love those!

  3. I wish we lived closer so Kamree could join you in your fun crafting projects! You gals are sooo talented!

    Hope you have a great weekend!
