Summer vacation has started at last. In Japan the school year begins in April and runs until March and summer vacation is typically only about 5-6 weeks long. It's taking a bit of time to find our groove, but I made a list of daily goals and jobs. One of our goals is to do a daily craft. Here's some of what we've done so far.
Painted peg people, painted with paint markers and inspired by these darling dolls.
I was also enchanted by the spool dolls at Sweet Sweet Life. Perhaps a little house next?
I have no mod podge or other decoupage materials here so these were just made with a wash of glue and water. Collecting the perfect rock for these was part of the fun. I think the peg people and rocks could do with a final coat of acrylic sealer but I'm a bit leery of using that while pregnant…
More crafts are in the works….origami flowers, embroidery and sewing, more recyclable crafts. I'll share our projects as we go along!
