We are finishing off our Robert Munsch author unit with The Paper Bag Princess. The children were thrilled with their crowns :).
Print the crown template on card paper then paint yellow. When dry, cover with glitter glue, let dry, then cut out. (You can sprinkle glitter onto glue, but I find that always comes off all over the house, but the glitter glue seems to stay put.) Then add jewels. I purchased a bag with tons of jewels at Dollarama. They had blue/green/diamond and pink/purple/diamond bags. We didn't even use 1/2 the bag for 4 crowns so will have to think of another great project for them. Once the glue dries, add a strip of yellow fun foam measured to fit child's head and it's ready to wear!

Hey everyone - it's been a long week for me ... I contracted a horrible flu bug early this week and it knocked me down and out - hope that I don't experience that again! If you are looking for a cute last minute gift idea for Dad or a 'something extra' to put in with Dad's gift, print out this coupon book... the gift that keeps on giving :)!

Ahhhhhhhhh, nothing like a relaxing Saturday morning! I'm enjoying some computer time today and wanted to start sharing some Father's Day printables with you. I created this game last year (I think)... it's a fun little game to put out at a table and easy for the little ones to play unassisted. Enjoy!
