Crafting Monday...

This week we made Valentine's trees...We love all the heart things around this season!
I laid a heart template over a paper with a tree trunk drawn in marker, and the kids taped the templates down, then they pinched cotton balls with clothes pins and dipped them in paint and dabbed them in the middle of the template. Then we took the templates off, and they were super excited to see their heart shaped trees!

Crafting Monday...

This week I laid out all the making for snowflakes...because we've been having some snow days, and it's freezing here. My kids love them some glue, paint, and glitter. These are their very favorite things, and they could glitter all day. I do love some sparkle, but why does glitter have to be so small and glittery??

Well. At least my babies were happy.

Sunday...

Trauma shatters your most basic assumptions about yourself and your world..."life is good," "I'm safe," "people are kind," "I can trust others," the future is likely to be good...and replaces them with feelings like "the world is dangerous," "I can't win," "I can't trust other people..."
