making jar bugs

bverste(zone 5)August 5, 2010

I need instructions please, My grandkids r coming for a week, I need some crafts, I figured painting some pots, mosaic stepping stones, I even had some directions for butterflies out of copper. I even have some stuff for sparklers--I think the girls will enjoy those. Any other idea? Whew I am tired already!

duh! No wonder I couldn't find anything--I tried searching again with bottle bugs and eureka! but any other ideas or thoughts I would appreciate I have also been working on some totems and will take pictures, then you all can tell me where you find the pretty pottery and dishes,

Ahh, they'll love the sparklers & bottle bugs ...lots of beads & bling! I think it's fun to have some pics of GK's printed & they can do some scrappin' with just lots of stuff around the house...papers, sewing notions, stamping, etc. Sometimes they make "cards" with the pics & scrappin' for their friends or whoever. They'll keep you BUSY & just have FUN! Jeanne S.
