Crazy Hat Day

Kindergarteners at Longmont Estates have and End of Year Program..."Crazy Hat Day"...
It gave Olive and I an opportunity to brain storm about Spring and do a bit of crafty stuff.
We needed it because we have all just been total Bitches in my house lately. Screaming and carrying on like ding dongs.
So, we headed out to the ARC to find a vintage hat that looked Springy...
There was one perfect hat amongst the old cowboy hats...the perfect Spring base to our crafty hat.
We then headed to Hobby Lobby to find the little birds.
Here, Olive announced to everyone and anyone who would listen that,

"Everything is made in China!!! Why can't we make things in the U.S. of A!!!?"

good point kid.
Found what we needed...headed back home for an easy project with her singing some crazy song about smashing bumble bees.

We arranged the hat over brilliant conversation. Topics like : we love Nature...
Why do little birds only lay three eggs? And Chinese people must have tiny hands.
Then we were done.
and she went to show her ever lackluster father.
"look---!!!! Mommy and I LOOOVE nature...But Daddy you hate it.
You run over squirrels."
and I smiled, because he was caught, once again...
by a 5 year old.

Wow! Olive's hat turned out great!!! It makes Haley's foam butterfly garden hat look a little shabby! These projects are not my favorite thing...
