::button candy::paper leaves::etc::

Cutest thing I have ever seen in my life (besides Dave, the kids, and Sadie): vintage candy buttons. You can get the button mold here for $2.25!!!!! (check out the button card cookies)

A very inspiring author & his marketing techniques: Dallas Clayton- watch the video.

::paper leaves:: squirt a coffee filter with food color, paint with a wet brush, let dry, trace leaves onto filter, cut out, attach to window with double side tape. Great for the small motor skills. The kids loved this.


Thanks for the response for the Christmas gift packs- there are some more left- so hurry and get yours- it is a great gift idea.

Gorgeous leaves!...I've done a similiar project with my first graders but we used markers to color the coffee filters and then squirted it with water, I bet the food coloring makes it more vibrant.
