I finally got to join them this week. We had sooooo much fun!
One of my favorite things we did together was crafting with duck tape.
I know duck tape has been around for a very long time. I've had youth group kids who did all sorts of strange things with plain ol' gray duck tape. I didn't realize there were colors other than sad gray.
I recognize I'm not a crafter. All my crafter friends out there are saying "What rock have you been living under? Of course, there are lots of fun colors and patterns of duck tape!"
Any way, my kids invested their own money in some fun duck tape. It was such cool stuff! I knew I needed to have some of my own. So, off to Walmart to invest in some supplies...
Sad gray now has some beautiful friends! Bright colors and fun animal prints. These are my favorites.
I saw this great duck tape crafting idea from my funny friend, Beki over at The Rusted Chain. You see, I have these fabulous friends who are so creative and crafty. I want to be just like them. My kids want to have a creative mommy like my friends. I have to read some of their blogs late at night after my kids go to bed because it creates envy for my oldest daughter, Hannah.
Back to the snow day. I promised Hannah we would do a fun craft together. So, we started with a zebra print notebook for Abi.
Abi chose teal for the back of her notebook. The perfect mismatch for my (not so) coordinated 8 year old.
We then moved on to picture frames. First a leopard print...
and then a neon rainbow...
