Kenzi has been waiting for the daughter dance for 3 weeks. It was a cowboy theme so they got dressed up and went dancing. Although she wouldn't dance with him until the very last dance. She had so much fun seeing her friends and having some one on one with her dad. She was all smiles when she got home. I am the Activity Days leader now and so we did a fun and easy little project yesterday. They made these cute little lanterns. The girls thought it was so much fun. In case you ever need something fun for your kids to do here are the instructions.
(These pictures aren't very good. They are much cuter in person)
Start with a pint-size canning jar. Apply with a glue stick to the undersides of 3-4 11-by1/2 in. strips of cotton fabric. Wind 24-gauge wire three times around the neck of the jar, then twist together the wire ends and trim. Cut three 12-inch wire lengths, loop one end of each around the neck wire, and twist to secure them. Thread on beads. Holding the three wires together, slide on a large bead, then twist the wires into a single strand. Wrap the strand around a fat marker (I used my finger) to make a loop, twist the end around the strand and trim. Put flat glass marbles and a tea light in the inside of the jar.
Tip: use an uncooked spaghetti strand as a "match" to light the candle
Hang outside and enjoy!
I love that Kenzi got to do the daddy/daughter thing. That is just too cute. That's another reason why I always wanted a girl....I just knew that Mutt would be such a good daddy to a little girl, but I get to be amazed when I watch him with our boys too!
Oh, I forgot to ask you what you were doing for spring break? Ours is officially starting on Monday. But we aren't going on our San Diego Trip until Sat. (so the boys will be missing 3 days of school). Anyways- I might take my boys up to Show Low for a few days. I think this Monday-Thurs. Let me know if you'll be around. I would LOVE to see you!!
Cute lanters! What a great idea! :)
That is such a cute tradition. I wish we had something like that here. It's so important for girls to have one-on-one times with their dads. Kenzi is a very cute little cowgirl! How is RV anyway? Are you guys staying with your Mom and Dad? I think I recognize the kitchen in the background :)
That was so fun to watch! They were all very cute with their daddy's! Cute pictures!
Very cute lanterns! I had that calling for 3 years, and I was always looking for a good craft. I will have to remember those for this summer in the back yard! Thanks!
Cute lanterns. Thanks for the idea! Love the daddy/daughter time.
Kenzi and Luke look so cute! I love daddy daughter dances. I bet you are the funnest activity days leader!
