Share It Saturday #21 and our Week-In-Review

Wow, you guys are awesome!  It was SO HARD to choose our featured posts this week.  There were so many amazing links posted up.  We are truly inspired by you guys! Thank you for joining us in sharing your posts. You are what makes our party so much fun!
Our Week-In-Review:
This week went by in a flash! One of the Aunts had a house that was hit with sickness.  We ALL passed it from one to the other.  Another Aunt is finishing up the teaching school year and READY for summer break 🙂 Another Aunt is celebrating family and blessings with a vacation get-away.  With all of that craziness going on, we didn’t get many extra pictures taken.  Check out our Instagram feed for a few shots from this week.  
We did a little twig loading outside one beautiful morning.
And sowed some seeds in egg cartons.  We’re watching every day for little sprouts!

Our most popular post this week was our Textured Paint Sensory Play post.

Create a Wishing Well

wishing well made from five gallon bucket
One day recently, Big Sister came up to me and said,
“Mom, I reeeeeeeally want to make a Wishing Well.”
So, a Wishing Well we made.
supplies needed to create a wishing well
Our supplies were easy to find around the house and in the garage:
5 gallon bucket
crafting paper
clear tape
plastic pot
plastic grocery bag (our “water”)
two pieces of wood and a paint stirrer
We taped the crafting paper around the bucket and taped it into place.

Big Sister drew “bricks” on the paper.

Tape the wood pieces to the inside of the bucket and tape the paint stirrer across the top.
We cut the bottom third off of a brown paper bag and slid it over the paint stirrer.
Tie the rope to the bucket.
And haul in some water.
