We had a HOOT!

Another 'activity days' success!
We made these adorable owls, and caught up on our monthly scrapbooks.
We all agreed we could use at least another hour together!
I had precut small pieces, but let the girls cut out the body of the owls with the pattern.
I wished we had more time to sew.  I may do this again, with a sewing focus and have everything ready to go and just let them sew.
We had a wonderful time regardless.
Find the tutorial HERE and make a few for yourself!

hoo, hoo doesn't think this is cute?

I got this blank owl while I was in UT.
They have the greatest store there called The Wood Connection where you can get this fantastic, cut blank wood.
I got this owl while there. I finished him last month.

Initially I painted him brown, but had second thoughts, and after finding my paper, painted him grey. I LOVE this cute little guy. He hangs in my entry way.

Activity Days

I am in charge of Activity Days for the little gals 8-10 in our ward/congregation. Every other week we get together to do an activity of some sort.
I recently made this little board for us.

I started with a sheet of cardboard, that I get from my professional printer!
I used ModPodge to adhere scrapbook paper. I created 4 different sections.
A spot for our monthly calendar... birthdays, activity days, other monthly events

A spot for jobs. One girl calls all of the others, one is in charge of treats and two others pray at the beginning and the end of the activity.

A spot for our monthly focus. I want to coordinate a goal as well as a monthly scrap page to go with this. This month our focus is the scriptures, last month it was friendship.

The last spot is for miscellaneous things. For our last activity I put scriptures up in that spot that we were looking up.

I covered the whole thing with ModPodge and we adhere everything with sticky tac.

Thanks to my trusty Cricut for this project! Matt got me that for my birthday. Never thought I'd use it much, but I'm finding more and more!
