Craft projects July 14 & 19,2011

In lieu of the not so summery weather around here Sam & I have been quite busy with a few craft projects her and the
re. One of the projects was called star in jars, we were pretty excited about this one. Especially knowing that there was suppose to be glowing. I was even surprised when I found glow in the dark paint at Micheals. Well we set straight to work with some select jars painting away. Then we let them dry in the window sill for the day. When night came we held or breath and waited and waited and not to much glowing proceeded. FAIL! So I am on the look outfor glow in the dark powder that you add to paint if anyone knows where to get some.

An additional project that we worked on was making sidewalk chalk. Now this was allot of fun. We found some in expensive plaster of paris at OPUS. Mixed with some paint and water and voila, SIDEWALK CHALK! We poured ours in a variety of molds to see which ones would work better. We tried money rollers and toilet paper rolls, both worked out well. Sam was amazed when he came down the next morning and the chalk had dried. This was also a science experiment as there was an exothermic reaction happening.
