"I think I know what we are going to do today Mom"
I am a mother of two rambunctious boys ages 9 and 2. I also have a chronic autoimmune disease which has changed my life around. I cannot do the things I used to. I do not want my kids to feel like they miss out on things. We have been using Pinterest frequently. It is a treasure chest of inspiration. We pin and pin and pin! Then they sit there....on the bulletin board. These great creative ideas that scream at me and make me desire to be more creative! I think I can do that! I cannot do a lot of things but I can do some things! I just have to change some! I am not working currently due to the disease. This summer I want to make fun! I want it to be one they remember! So...our goal is to take one of the creative ideas we have pinned a day and complete it. A pin a day. This can be a little one, a big one, just something to break up the summer days and do things that we normally would not! We can do it! These ideas are from the creative minds on pinterest and we hope you enjoy them! 86 days of Summer!!!

Hummingbird sun catchers!

We love hummingbirds! Nana loves in the mountains and we see a lot! The boys are fascinated with how fast they are! We have some friends visiting from Illinois and decide that we could make hummingbird sun catchers so when they go home they can look at them and remember their trip to Colorado!
Items needed:
Contact paper
Tissue paper

I printed a humming bird coloring page from www.1001coloringpages.com and traced it onto the contact paper. I then cut it out and gave it to the kids with tissue paper. They could use big pieces or tear them up. Once completed press another piece of contact paper on top and trim! You can add details with market if you want! They looked beautiful! My friends 6 year old little girl loved them! She did three! Some made them all colors others made them the same. They had fun doing hem and turned out great!
