It's been a HARD week but we got UNPLUGGED

:) It really has been a horribly hectic week however we did manage to get a HARD project in, if only for a few moments.

I didn't really know what in the heck to do. I had birthday parties to plan, mommy preschool to get ready for and on, and on, and on.

Anyway, while I was preparing a few things for the party I got Cali up to the bar and gave a baggie full of old hard keys.

I showed her how to make rubbings with a crayon. Some of them were thicker than others and didn't work out so well but others worked OK.

While she was working Grandpa came by to visit and decided to show her how to make Mr. Lincoln appear by rubbing a hard penny. Even though it was a stretch I am grateful we were doing the project when we were. I think Grandpa had just as much fun as she did. I hope she will remember doing projects with her Grandpa. I know I will.

Oh, there's just something about a grandpa and a little girl, isn't there??? :)

That's a fun project, I like that you have so many different keys on hand (my husband probably would have made me thrown them away). And it's totally adorable that her grandpa joined in.

That is a wonderful idea! No stretch at all. In fact, the more distant the association with the theme, the more fun in my mind, and you have inspired me to try it!

I am glad that Grandpa showed up to join in. Your kids are lucky to have him so close by.
