This didn't last long... I needed more... I cut hearts out of my Bazzil Basics green scrapbook papers. I let her glue them onto paper. Gluing is REALLY fun when you are 2.
Throw in some glitter glue and Want 2 Scrap gold sticker dots and things are looking promising...
I cut out some shamrocks quickly from cardstock. I didn't pay any attention to detail on cutting them exactly. That wasn't the point. Then I let Molly stamp away with a PSA Stamper. We (okay really I) chose the sentiment "live well, laugh often, love much" from PSA Dare to Dream Peel & Stick collection.
Molly's very focused stamping here, isn't she? I was shocked to see how well she punched holes in the shamrocks when I gave her the hole punch. (Mike who was also home because of the rainy day was true to form and freaking out that she was going to cut herself... but there was little risk, Mr. Helicopter.)
Now I helped her thread twine from The Twinery through the punched holes. I was again pretty shocked - she was very focused on getting the twine through the hole... that particular part of the activity lasted a good 10 minutes.
All threaded up....
And proudly on the mantel...
Just in time for the sun to come out! (And we need not discuss the headband. Or the bracelets. That's what happens when you take a 2.5 year old girl to Claire's Accessories for the first time.)
