Well, our weekend was pummeled by the "Pineapple Express."
An atmospheric river that made its way here from
the Hawaiin Islands.
Lots of rain, rain, rain.
And since we are studying weather and climate, I thought this would
make an excellent lesson! So Binky
made a diagram of the "Pineapple Express."
You can read more about it here, if you like.
So while we were indoors, listening to all that rain, Goose
broke out some holiday decorations.
This is Binky's favorite christmas item.
I bought it for him at the Nutcracker several years ago.
I made some salt dough ornaments and we
had a blast decorating them! Grandma came over with her
craft box and we went a little crazy with all that paint, glitter, and beads!!
I love how they turned out!
These two ornaments are for my two nephews.
I hope they love them! I had so much fun making them!
I even made some for us.
It was a nice time. Holiday memories in the making.
I asked the kids what they would like to do this holiday season
and we came up with a few ideas so far.
birdseed ornaments for the birds
solstice walk in the woods
gift making for family and friends
light the lights for Hanukkah
go ice skating
Joy, over at You know how we're an art family...

What special activities do you do with your family this
time of year?
