Back to School Crafts!

I have been in Yellowstone for the past week having fun with my family!

We were able to see every animal you could possibly see in Yellowstone including a mama bear and her two cubs....which were adorable to look at from the safety of our car :)  Now we are gearing up for another family trip to Canada for a wedding which, when we get back from our vacationing, doesn't leave a lot of time before school starts.  Hence this post for a few fun and easy back to school projects for your little ones....

Your girl is very talented. Covering a plain old notebook with pipe cleaners is superb idea. Well, her work was equally beautiful and moving and congrats to you for surviving.

Fruits with the quotations is totally eye catching work. I also want to do same work with the fruits and flowers, I hope my parents will give good reviews.
