Artwork Gifts

First we paint with pastels and make a big mess.

Next we collect and paint acorns and sticks from the park.

Then we wrap our treasures with a small note-pad.

Now we can seal them with a prayer and give ‘em away!

Since we had both boys and girls and a variety of ages we planned lots of different activities!

Build-A-Bot:  Craft

Robot Race:  Two teams.  Tin foil.  Race to see who can make the most creative robot attire!

Bot Ball:  Baseball for the “robots”!

Pin the Dial on the Bot:  Like Pin the Tail on the Donkey with a twist.  Instead of a blindfold the kids used a “robot head” so they couldn’t see.

Punch a Prize Robot:  This was a big hit!  Instead of a pinata, we made a punch box from a cardboard box.  (idea via Pinterest!)  Blindfolded guests got to PUNCH for a PRIZE!

Robot Bounce:  Trampoline decorated for bots.  We ran out of time for this one!

Robot Trading Cards:  Make a card.  Leave a card.

That’s some colorful break dancing, isn’t it!?

What to do…

…with all those leaves?!

Count them.

Sort them.

Color on them.

Color with them.

Trace them.

Seek and find them.

Enjoy them.

Tomorrow, if it’s not drizzling, we are going to JUMP in them and WAX them!

Blessings and love!
