Summer Fun!

We've had such fun the last few days!  My two nieces are visiting and we've been going full blast!

This crayon art was an idea from Pinterest - it was a great way to use up extra crayons.

First we peeled the crayons,

then we hot-glued them to card stock, (I think using a canvas or something more firm would work better, the paper got kind of wavy.)

Next, we melted them with a hair dryer.

We found that bright colors look best. And that too much heat can re-melt the hot glue and make the crayons fall off.

The children really thought it was neat!

This morning we went to the peach orchard.

It's such a scenic place, and the breeze blowing kept it cool.

To bad the peaches weren't very ripe. But we had fun picking anyhow.

Then this afternoon, water balloon time!

The cousins have to leave soon and we hate to see them go. It's been such a great time!

My children will feel a little lost without them!
