Crafter's Campfire Today

When the grandchildren come to visit, they enjoy crafts. Painting and drawing with color pencils on construction paper is a favorite. They like to paint rocks, too.
Next weekend they plan to paint a wood stool that I found at the local Goodwill Store for $2. We have sandpaper, paints, brushes, sponges and stencils. If they like painting the stool, we have three wood chairs that need paint. I found them at Goodwill Store for $5 each.
When they aren't painting, they like to sewing 5" squares and 2 1/2" strips together to make table toppers, doll blankets, pillows and quilts.
If it's not raining or too dry to built a fire, we toast marshmallows. If we can't toast marshmallows, no problem. We pop up lots of microwave popcorn! Yum!

Love the cute stencils - fun project, kids love to paint and this a little more 'grown up' painting for older kids. Thank you for sharing with us today.

You do enjoy doing some fun things with the young ones. I never thought about just getting random furniture for my little guy to paint. That is a great idea.

We did indoor s'mores, but we had to turn off the smoke detectors temporarily!
