Egypt bin

K has fallen in love with ancient Egypt. Let me tell you how hat it is to make a bin and fin things for it. We bought a pack o plastic Egypt figures and went from there. K and I made the pyramids out of tape, cardboard, and paint. The mirror was found at good will and painted. We made wraps (to make mummies) out of white cloth. The sand is from lake mi. I've also added a couple of little skeletons to make into mummies.
I'm hoping I don't regret using sand. Especially since my little guy throws everything.

Gingerbread houses

I attempted to make my own gingerbread houses for the kids to decorate. In the past deb (friend) has done most of the work. Well let me just say... My catch phrase of the night was, "this wouldn't have happened to deb. ". In the end though, the boys had fun and the houses turned out great.
