For the theme of white, we gathered up all the white toys and craft materials that we could find.
Then Jaylene thought of a story that we could illustrate with our goodies.
We put five scenes together and took pictures of them (Jaylene took some too!). We’re going to print them out and make a little story book. Perhaps we’ll attempt it with other colors too. Would you like to read our I spy story? Try to find these five things in each picture.
Little Bunny’s Adventure by Jaylene
Little Bunny is busy working on a big project. Oh no! He’s missing something. Where can he find it? He must go out and look for it.
Is it here? No.
Is it here? No.
It’s not here either. Will Little Bunny ever find what he needs to finish his project?
Yay! He found it on the mountain near the lake of pearls. Do you know what he needed?
Now Little Bunny has a sail for his boat. He’s going to sail away on an adventure. The end.
After we started Jaylene found a heart shaped button and added it in on some of the photos. Can you find any other treasures that appear in two or more of the scenes?
When I saw these pumpkin ornaments I was reminded of similar paper crafts we’ve done over the years and how much fun it is. I was inspired to design some Halloween themed ornaments.
Here it is flying in the window, which gives Jaylene great delight. She must have made at least half a dozen comments about it during the day, usually resulting in the need to run screaming around the house. Which in turn, gave Jayden great delight. Me, not so much.

Fold the above strips in half and glue the tips together (I used double sided tape).
Glue the ends together and attach it to the top.

Fold the above into thirds, join and glue at each fold.
Top of wing – 1×5.5″ glue the ends together with the inside part of the wing.
Repeat for second wing.

Follow the instructions for the bat wing, but instead of 1×5.5″ for the top of wing, use 1×3.5″ for the middle of the web. Repeat everything and attach the two sides together.
