Impress My Kid?!?

It’s Wednesday (albeit 9pm, it’s Wednesday nonetheless) and it’s time once again for Fall Impressions(see sidebar!) with the ladies over at Impress your Kids!!!

This week we did our donation box – or as James calls it, his “donut box”.  Oh how I wish buddy – you have no idea!  Anyway, *wiping drool from my chin* focus, focus!  I love to scrapbook, but since the boys have entered my life, I haven’t been able to do so much of it, but that means I have all this equipment laying around collecting dust.  NOT ANYMORE!  No Sireeeeee!!!  Check this out!!

First, you absolutely MUST have the proper color marker…

Then mommy whips out her Cricut die cutting machine…. oh baby! Kids crafts gone to a new level!

Cut out some goofy looking turkeys and give James a glue stick – I believe I snapped the picture while he was saying “Gluuuuuuuuuuueee”,

Add Googly eyes to the turkeys for that “Just-a-little-scared-of-the-future” look – oh and James said that it needed a mouth,

Now each time we hit the grocery store, we grab a couple cans for our Donut box.  Rest assured that not a single solitary donut will ever see the inside of this box!
