Earth Day 2015: Create SOMETHING!
Earth Day is just around the corner, and while it’s a fun day for us to celebrate, the reality is that many days feel like Earth Day around here.
This weekend Aly celebrated her 6th birthday, and when I mentioned to Jake that I needed to buy a tiered cupcake holder, he told me that he could just make one. Out of trees branches and stuff. What?! Who says that?
While I may have doubted his ability to make it happen, he came through and exceeded my expectations by far.
I present to you- Aly’s Woodland Creatures Cupcake Holder/Treehouse.
Jake made most of this while I took the older kids to a movie during Spring Break (we say Home and it was really good! much better than what I was expecting, actually). He did a lot of it while Anaya napped, and then she helped him finish up.
Now I know that not many of you are looking to make a Woodland Creatures cupcake holder. But, I bet there is something that you have been wanting or needing as a family-why not create it instead of buy it? Save the earth, save some money, and practicing being creative together as a family!
In case you need some more ideas or inspiration, I did a little research of things you could make out of whatever you have laying around your house or yard.
