I was leading crafts during vacation bible school earlier this summer. it was a noah's ark theme, and it was challenging to find projects that would work for diffrent age groups. I found several diffrent printable boats that you cut, folded, and glued together. these were my samples.
the one on the right looked cool, but was more difficult than expected to fit together. the kids enjoyed the other 2 variations though.
I think the bright yellow border ties nicely with the yellow button i used to create this golden snitch patch

project-suspension bridge patch
I sent this in the tesha moore patch swap. my partners themes were all scientific, so i embroidered a suspension bridge onto this swirled fabric that reminded me of water.
i have so much fun making these patches, and as small as they are it's easy to tuck them into my bag to work on when i'm stuck waiting somewhere. this one was also for a scientific theme. i thought the swirled fabric made a fun background for my embroidered telescope.

I usually prefer colored pencils, but our library had an open night where you could bring your kids and free paint. there was a willow tree outside the window, so I painted this just for fun. I like it, but i'm wishing I had just filled the canvas with leaves. It was fun to try something new, without much of a plan just for the joy of doing it.
