To the Sea!

“"maggie and millie and molly and may"
maggie and millie and molly and may
went down to the beach (to play one day)
and maggie discovered a shell that sang
so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles,and
millie befriended a stranded star
who's rays five languid fingers were;
and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:and
may came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world and as large as alone.
For whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves we find in the sea.”
E.E. Cummings

All American Robot!

Isn't this just the cutest lil' patriotic robot ever?!?! I especially love the soda bottle cap eyes! This robot would be such a fun centerpiece at your 4th of July celebration. Wouldn't it look like a proud little American on Independence Day! I love Family Fun Magazine for a variety of reasons. This magazine always inspires me to get crafting with my daughter and as a family. Most of their crafts require items you already have lying around your home like the coffee cans and paper towel rolls on this patriotic robot. I know I said my favorite part was his cute little bottle cap eyes---but, now I am thinking it is the fact that he is full of sugary goodness on the inside! I am giving this crafty project a score of EASY PEEZY LEMON SQUEEZY!
