Giraffe handprint Craft May 14, 2012

My daughter loves giraffes.  I saw this pinned on Pinterest and thought of Sophie right away.  She’s been asking me for weeks to do this project and I finally caved in.  It was a simple and fun project.  I highly recommend it for all you giraffe lovers out there!

 

Project Supplies

1.)  Paper

2.)  Yellow paint

3.)  Paint brush.

4.)  Brown marker

5.)  Googly eye.

 

Project Steps

1.)  Collect all the supplies.

2.)  Paint your child’s hand and forearm yellow.

3.)  Stamp the hand and forearm onto your paper.  You will need to paint on the head of the giraffe after you stamp.

4.)  Let the paint dry completely.

5.)  Draw in the giraffe spots, tail, horns, mane, notes, mouth and hooves with brown marker.

6.)  Attach googly eye.

 

And here’s my giraffe lover with her latest piece of artwork!

May Date

I put together one year’s worth of dates (one date per month) for my husband as a Valentine’s Day present.  Our May date was simple and perfect.  Once in awhile it’s just fun to go out and feel like a normal couple.

 

The date card read “Dinner and a Movie!  We’ll dine at our new favorite spot, Lucky Monk, and finally see The Hunger Games.  Love, Lisa.”  In the May envelope, I included the date card, coupons for the movie (I purchased a groupon a while back), and a gift card to “The Lucky Monk”.

 

My sister babysat the girls for us so we could enjoy the night out!  My husband brews his own beer, so anytime we can visit a Microbrewery, he’s a happy camper!  We sat at the bar and had a few beers while we waited for our table.  Here’s a picture of the taps at the bar.  I enjoyed the Tritica Wheat Ale.

 

Then, we enjoyed our dinner and had a nice conversation …

 

We watched The Hunger Games …

 

And called it a night!

 

Until next month…
