But for ME, I wanted a Sharknado.
Inspired by this post, and I tried several different dish soaps and NONE of the tornadoes looked as good as they did in this lady's posts. She must have magic soap, but it really works!
Then I went to three stores to find either plastic sharks that would be light enough to float and not just sink to the bottom of the jar and/or shrinky dink material (make my own damn sharks!) Both hunts were fail, so I made them myself using a template I cannot find again. Sorry.
The jar needed something....so I made a small label with
"Sharknado" bookended with some fancy orange chainsaws and voila!
One Sharknado for the parents to play with while the kids are making crafts today.
Oh, what are we making?
Shark Teeth necklaces out of air dry clay.
And what are we reading?
I Am a Shark by Stille
I Am A Shark by Shea (he's one of my favorites)
I'm expecting 30-ish attendees and plan to have some real fun with this one. The age group on this one is 6-12, but I know I'll have a bunch of 5-year-olds sneak in, because 5-year-olds are ninjas, and I respect that.
