A Reader’s Gymnastics Bar

7 Jan

The gymnastics bar posts are by FAR the most googled and looked at posts we have on this blog.  Quite interesting.  I love that families out there are not settling to spend $500 on a store gymnastics bar but are instead building them.    Way to go!

One such industrious family sent a picture of this gymnastics bar they built for their daughter.  They gave it to her as a Christmas present and as you can guess, it was a huge success.  Look at the gorgeous paint job!  Can you imagine the look on her face as she sees this masterpiece on Christmas morning?

I am so happy that this friendly reader took the time to send this picture, it sure made my day. Thanks!

Sheet Coloring Craft

11 Oct

I love doing crafts with Aleah when it is just the two of us hanging out.  I think I saw this idea on pintrest and was excited to give it a try.

We filled up two squirt bottles with water and food coloring and started squirting away.  We used, purple, green, pink, yellow, red and blue.

Doesn’t she look like a little artist?

Isn’t that more fun than a boring white sheet?
