Summer Crafting with MindWare


My daughter likes to pick wildflowers from our yard but I can't ever find the right sized vase to put them in. They are all just too tall and the flowers are just too short. So I end up using a coffee mug because it's the only thing that's short enough for them to reach the water and still be seen. That was until we stumbled upon this Paint Your Own Porcelain Vases kit. The vases are all 5" tall which is the perfect size for the wildflowers she picks for me. Plus since the set just so happened to come with three vases we decided it would be nice to give one to each of her grandmas so they too could have a place to put those little flowers too. Of course that would mean she would have to sit down long enough to finish them all. She hasn't been too good at that lately with all the activities we had going on this summer. Hopefully with school back in session she will finally be able to sit down and do it now.


Something else she's been working on this summer are some DIY projects for her cats. She has completed a few more of these than she has the vases though. Of course being for the cats she's a little more motivated I think. She's made some treats from scratch and made some cat toys.


She even played a few games of "find the treats" with her cats using these cute little cups and some treats she made for them. And proudly showed off one of the toys she made for her buddy Firestar. She made them a couple catnip filled fish too, but apparently they ran off with them when she left them unattended on her desk overnight because they've been MIA ever since. I guess that means she did a good job right?

You can find these and lots of other fun crafting sets on the MindWare website.
