After, draw two eyes on it with your sharpie, put a heart sticker right under the right eye. Now make a bow out of some red ribbon. After put the bow on the top of the body above the left eye. Now draw a mouth with lipstick below the  eyes, if you want, you can add a little note next to the mouth in a speech bubble such as “Happy Valentine’s Day!”. Now, cut out (using your zigzag scissors) a circle only a bit smaller than the pompom pal body out of red paper and glue or attach it to the back of the pompom pal.

Happy 2014! Time Capsule

Happy 2014! Time Capsule

The New Year has come and it is now 2014. Here is an idea for a new kind of time capsule to work on all year round! This is also a great family activity to do all year.

What you’ll need:

– pictures


– large jar (peanut butter jar, glass jar, etc.)

– decorating/scrapbooking materials

– anything else you want to add

-sticky notes/paper

One idea for your time capsule is to take a jar ,such as a peanut butter jar, and put it where you see it every day. also put some slips of paper or a pack of stickynotes out next to it. When ever you have a good time you can write it down and why you are happy on a sticky note or slip of paper. you can also draw a picture if you like or add an item that brings back memories every day to make your time capsule grow bigger and bigger. and in the end you can decorate it and open it up in 2015 or 2016! Happy 2014!!! 

Veterans Day History

Veterans Day History

Veterans day is a holiday honoring those who fought in war, any war because freedom is not free, everything has a cost. Veterans day 2 was originally called Amistice day and was celebrated in honor of the tragedies of war. Veterans day is celebrated on the 11th of November because World War 1 ended at exactly at 11 A.M. on the 11th of the 11th month in 1918 or November 11, 1918. In 1926, Congress passed a resolution making veterans day an official holiday, and making it be celebrated in churches, schools, and other public areas. A year after veterans day became an official holiday, world war 2 broke out in Europe. Over 1 hundred thousand American troops died in world war 2 and even more in the Korean war. After the Korean war, congress made Veterans day a day for not only those who served in world war one, but any veteran who had served in any war. And that is how Veterans Day began.
