Puffball Magnets

Made them :) Super easy, and very fun already according to Finn. It's pretty straightforward, but if you need a 'how to' ... here you go!

Colour PLAYHouse a success!

On Thursday, we had 3 families join Finn & I to play with & learn about colour. We did the colour wheel activity to learn out primary colours blend to create secondary colours and we reviewed the concept with the colour matching cards (links shared in last week's post). Here are some of our colour wheels drying in the window. After our indoor activities, we headed out to the park for some swinging, sliding & running around.

Home Improvements

Now that we've been in the new house for a whole year, we're starting to make some changes ... We painted the foyer & upper hall, they are no longer 'primer white'. Dave ran wiring through the attic to add a light fixture in the stairway, 3 new windows have been installed, and the foyer lights have been replaced (the old ones moved to the new stairway light & upper hall locations). The improvement with the greatest impact though, has to be the new front door. Gone is the bright red door that clashed with the brick & only had a teeny tiny way too high to be useful window. In it's place, that pretty blue door that actually lets light into the foyer and has a deadbolt that turns the correct way! Plus, it has fresh new trim around it, which was not finished when I got that photo (and we've taken all the labels off now too!). Today's project is the back door ...
