Paper Eggs

Today I want to share with you a great little Easter craft you can make with your kids or if your like me, your simply so bored that you are trying to find things to do to keep you busy. Either way, this is a fun and easy.

What you will need is: 
-Printed paper.
-Glue (I used a glue stick).
-String or yarn.

You can use any kind of paper such as used cards, magazines and book pages or scrap book paper. I did not have any of these things so I went online and found some floral colors and printed them on regular copy paper. 

I cut out one egg shape to use as a pattern and used it to cut out several other pieces. You will need 4 shapes for one egg. Try to get them all the same so they match up. Mine were a little off because I do not draw or cut accurate, but they were close enough not to notice. 

Fold each piece in half to make a crease. 

Now, glue four pieces together sides to sides. Somewhere along the way, make sure you glue a string between the pieces so you can hang them. The length of the string is up to you. 

Now get creative and find something to hang your fabulous eggs on. I took some branches from a dogwood and placed in a vase. You can use branches with blooms, paint them or leave them naked like mine.

This craft will keep you and the kiddos busy for about and hour. It’s on you to figure out how to keep them busy the rest of the day. 
Stay safe and take advantage of this time with family.

Wild Life Friends

We are now back home from our recent beach trip. We cut the trip short due to a couple concerns. This pandemic going around has put the whole state on “stay in” order. This means to limit time away from the house. We were fine down at the coast in our own little camper with no contact with other people while we enjoyed a nice relaxing time at the campground and on the beach. Back here at home we have to be in by 5:00 pm. The only places we can go are places of necessities. Well, you know how it is.

While we did not have contact with anyone except for talking back and forth from a distance or a hand wave, we did have contact with some wildlife in the area. Even the animals seem different. These birds refused to move as we walked by. Normally they will scatter. 

These two ducks visited our campsite every morning. They must of could hear my door open each morning to let the sunshine and cool breeze in. Within minutes I would hear them quaking at the foot of my door steps.

They would stay and watch me while I ate my breakfast then I would feed them some bread. 
We talked about the weather and about their other feathered family. 

While we were out walking we saw several of these little turtles. Some were no bigger than an quarter and most were smashed on the road. 

I was able to save this one. I took him over to the lake side and set him free. 

When we got home, I took a walk around the yard to check on my plants. I will occasionally peep in the bird campers to see if they are occupied. As I walked up to this bird camper, my stomach feel on the ground and my heart raced out of my chest as I saw an unwelcome happy camper. 

He looked happy and content so I told Nick to just take him out of the yard, but he got rid of him instead. It turned out to be a pretty long black snake and looked like it just had dinner (Probably from eggs in the nest). I know they are “suppose” to be the good snakes but I am terrified of any snake and the deader the better. The bite of a black snake will still make you extremely sick.
