 Here is a Mothers day project! Shrinky dink hand key chains! Very easy. Pick your glossy acrylic paint color, place hand print with the a thin layer of paint onto shrinky dink paper. Use paper punch to make hole! Follow directions with the shrinky dink paper. I used a permanent marker to label name and date. Let dry. Paint on thin layer of clear Mod Podge! Place key chain on!

    Happy Spring! ⛅πŸŒžπŸŒΈπŸ’πŸ΅πŸŒΉπŸ₯€πŸŒ»πŸŒΌπŸŒ±
With even a few sunny days, I itch to get my hands dirty, and plant! I'm enjoying seeing the buds on the trees, and spring flowers coming up. My Iris already looks like it will be gorgeous already! I planted a lilac last year, and i know it can take a couple years to bloom, so i'm holding my breath, but hey, it has green buds, it survived its first winter! So my question is this, what kinds of seeds have you started indoors with the kiddos, and have had success? Has anyone tried Impatiens? 🌱🌱🌱
