Cars, Trains, Trucks, and Planes!

Wheels, Watermelon and Whales
For lunch today we had simple sandwiches cut in the shape of a race cars ( used a cookie cutter) with wheels made out of watermelon balls. They also had spiced cookies in the shape of 'wheels'  and some whale crackers and some cheese in the shape of a flower. Everybody cleaned their plates and asked for seconds! :)

Following lunch, it was time to do some crafts. Over the weekend I picked up some cardstock die cuts in the shape of cars, trucks, plaines, etc. I got a pack of like 30 shapes for 79 cents at Michael's yesterday. Love me a deal! So Everyone chose a form of transportation and decorated them with the handy-dandy dot painters. (you can use bingo blotters or DO-A-DOT painters as well). After they were dry, we used construction paper and some electrical tape to make a scene on the picture window. The whole thing was quick and easy! And the window looks beautiful!
 Kids at work!

 The completed window scene!
 Chug-a-chug-a CHOO-CHOO!
 The highway is all backed up!
 Ry's dump truck is full and he is on his way down the dirt mountain!
 It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman!--- NO, wait... it is just a plane! 

It makes me happy!
