Summer Time Craft...

Last week was a busy week!  It was our county fair and while we aren't quite to the 4-H age yet, B did indeed show a pig in, what they call, the "runt class".  She loved it!  She also wants to show a calf in the open class next year, so we'll see how that turns out!  We went to the fair nearly every night including Thursday night which was a scorcher!  I think temps topped 105 degrees that day.  I think they may have a set a record for the fastest cattle show ever on Friday.  Due to the heat, it started an hour earlier and was over by noon!

This craft isn't all that creative, but it was all I could come up with on a whim.  The girls thought it was fun and were pretty proud of their creation.  Plus, I had all the supplies and I didn't have to make any impromptu run to the craft store.
Cut an ice cream shape out of construction paper.  Did you know there isn't any brown paper included in the standard pack?  If you want brown, you have to buy it separate.
Roll the tissue paper into tiny balls... 
and glue... 

Simple as that!... 

I hope to get a 4th of July craft completed before Wednesday.  And, if a miracle happens, I may even get it posted!


  1. Bless your heart! Did you melt at the fair? I would be playing the "P" card, and staying in or near the AC full time! It's crazy busy here too, and I hate it that I am not posting near as often as I am used to. It seems I have inherited the calf project, and I don't know too much about calves so I am learning on the fly! Hugs! Hope to see you next week?????

  2. Too cute! I look forward to the 4th of July craft too. ;)
