wave your magic wand

Wouldn't it be nice if we could wave a magic wand and Poof! things change :)
       tantrums would stop. bad hair days fixed. headaches gone. time would slow down. time would speed up. friends & family wouldn't be so far away. laundry would be done, folded, and put away!.... you get the picture. our lists could go on and on and on...

We don't have any magic wands that actually work at our house... but it is Fun to see what a magic wand will do if we let our imaginations work as the wand waves!
      we visit princes lands far and near. we have tea parties on the moon. we are In a nascar race.

I love to see what the kids imagine and create using their very active imaginations!

yesterday addie wanted to make a magic wand to do "special magic things".
she got out her Book of Fairy Things to make and Do and went to work.. with limited help :)

we traced 2 stars on cardboard and cut it out.
then we glued them to tin foil and put a book on them to dry flat.

addie cutting around the tin foil
 we used packing tape to stick the ribbon strips to the stars and the straw for the handle.

then we used a little of the clear packing tape around each point to stick the 2 back sides of the stars together.  She later decorated it with sparkle jewels... but i didn't get a pic of that.
ready for some magical fun!

the book addie was using is actually out of print now.. but there are many fun activity books with great ideas to "make and do" for the summer! here's a few favorites...
please see my Usborne Books and More site if interested  :)
