4H projects

 I don't have much time to actually craft since we added 2 little ones to our family and provide respite for other Foster families. Being a mom to 4 (and up to 6) has taken some adjustment~ but I would not trade it for anything in this world!!
The "big kids"- Hunter and Hailey recently took part in their 4H Achievement Days. They took a van load of projects last year, and this year I let them manage their time and projects. Hailey took one- a plate of Chocolate Chip cookies and earned a Blue ribbon. 

Hunter and his Blue ribbon Wine bottle bird feeder.

 Hunter earned a Blue Ribbon with the leather knife holder he made for his dad.

He got a Red ribbon for his recycled soda can grill.The can was cut in half, Ubolts used for the legs and a coat hanger for the cook surface. It is perfect to grill one hot dog or brat. 
Not only did the kids learn from their projects, but they learned a lot about managing time wisely. Hailey has already started her projects for next year. Hunter has a few good ideas and has been creating Wonderloom stuff. 
 Hopefully between the 2 of them and me, we will post more often. :-) We have all been scouring Pinterest in search of projects and have made a few trips to the craft stores and home improvement stores!! 
Thanks for stopping by!
Until later~

Congrats to the kids for doing such great jobs on their projects. I'm sure they had fun with them and will have fun with so many more. TFS!
