{Spring 2016 bucketlist // Update #3 // Spring Crafts}

We are movin' and groovin' on our Spring 2016 bucketlist. We have a few spring crafts under our belt and had so much fun doing them. Back when Mason was sick with strep we had a lot of down-time and knocked out some fun crafts and activities. One of the things we did was paint his pet rock that he got in his Easter basket! He was so meticulous with his painting. I loved watching him. Funny story, though...he got some paint on the bottom of his rock and it stuck to the porch. It was about a week before we finally got it off. Who knew that some cheap little paint could hold something that strong. ha.

After our Kindergarten Zoo Trip Mason and I had some time to spend together so we decided to do a spring craft. We swung by Target on our way home to see what they had in their dollar spot. We were really lucky and found a birdhouse kit! We grabbed that and some other fun things and headed home. I brought out our Bluetooth speaker and we put on some praise and worship music and just had the greatest time. It was such a special afternoon with my sweet boy. We normally have a friend over after school every day and it had been a while since Mason and I had some one on one time. It was amazing!! Mason wanted to paint his birdhouse just like the one on the picture, so he got busy doing just that. But then he ran out of one of the paint colors and that's when he decided to make it his own.

Mason and I can't wait for Summer to have more one on one time and to be able to crank out some more crafts {and quality time}!!

  9. So funny that the rock ended up sticking! Was that a Target find? I think I saw those a while back, and I'm kind of kicking myself for not snagging one while they were around.
    And how cute did Mason's little bird house turn out!
