Going for ballet class without a jacket also was good fun…Nadia picked some weeds and skipped around the backyard before class.

Finally a swing in the hammock…because we finally can 😃

Here’s to sunny days and great weather!

Enjoy your weekend.

Bunny hop

Do you remember the hopping toys from childhood? My dad bought me a few from Japan. Trying out some paper ones for Nadia here…

Now just let it go on an incline…bunny hops away!

Here’s a video demonstrating how it moves…

Have a great week.

Flashing LEDs

Nadia learned soldering 101 here..Dad and daughter working on a simple flashing LED circuit. She loved it!

And here Nadia is demonstrating how she can make the LEDs flash faster or slower. Cool stuff and a lot of fun!

 

Have a great day.

Origami fun

We got some cool colorful origami paper…

Nadia picked a red, several folds later…

Two cute dogs…

Moving on to mice bookmarks…

Cutting out the ears…

Then on to some different dogs…

And then some swords for the knight…

Aren’t the mice cute?

Here is our basket of goodies 🙂

Have a creative week!

Monster hooks

Nadia can’t reach the closet hangers so she decided to make some coat hooks herself.

Introducing Monster hooks…

She drew some monsters…

Here are the sketches…

Now let’s paint…those are some crazy monsters 😃

Then add on some clothespins…

Here is how they came out…a job well done!

Have a great week.

Cheers,
