Another super fun Melissa and Doug craft kit

Hello, my bucket list friends! It is no secret that I love doing craft kits. I’m always buying them and I having been trying to actually make more of them lately. On Monday I opened a craft get that I had gotten at a Goodwill back in August. This craft kit is from Melissia and Doug one of my favorite brands for craft kits. This kit had two magnets that your decorate with stickers and glitter glue. The two magnets in this kit were shaped like a firetruck and a train. I decided to make the train magnet first. This kit was pretty easy to do. It was also easy to figure out where the stickers were meant to go because there was a picture on kit. However, you can put the stickers wherever you want. There is no right or wrong way when it comes to putting the stickers on. After the stickers it was time for the glitter glue. There were two tubes of glitter glue in this craft kit. One was red and one was sliver. I didn’t use a whole lot of glitter glue for this project but I did enjoy outlining the firetruck with it. I also had fun making dots with it. I had fun doing this craft kit and I look forward to doing more Melissa and Doug craft kits in the future.

Thanks for reading about my craft kit fun!

Painting a colorful birdhouse

Hello, my bucket list friends! I hope your week has gotten off to a great start. Yesterday, I had the day off so I decided to do one of my favorite things. I did an art kit. I have quite a few art kits that I have not completed yet so yesterday I chose a simple birdhouse painting kit. There where three paint colors included in this kit but I decided to also used some other paint that I had. In addition to that I decided to use a set of paint brushes that I had instead of using the small on that came with the kit. I wanted to make my house very colorful I also wanted to include dots on my birdhouse because there is something that is both fun and relaxing about painting dots. I really liked the size of this bird house. It wasn’t huge but it was large enough that I could spread out the colors. I made a video of me painting the bird house . You can find the video on my Instagram page my username is summerrockstar. Doing this art kit remined me that I need to do more of the art kits that I have in my room. I not only have fun doing them they are good for my mentle health as well. I’m really happy with how this project turned out!

Thanks for reading about this art project!

Painting a rocket!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I just completed painting a rocket that actually lights up. I got this art kit at Target in the Dollar section. It is very simple but also very fun. There were three paint colors in this kit and I only used two of them. This kit did not take long at all to complete but I’m very happy with the way it looks. I also love how the light changes colors. I would definitely buy other kit similar to this one.

Play-Doh kit fun!

Hello,my bucket list friends! Recently I got this super cute Play-Doh kit from Walgreens. I’m home from work today not feeling the best but I did have the desire to open up this Play-Doh kit and use the animal shaped cookie cutters inside. There are a lot of cookie cutters in the kit. I decided to make one animal shape for each color of Play-Doh that came with the kit. There were seven colors in the kit but there were a lot more cookie cutters! There were so many to choose from. My three favorite cookie cutter shapes are the Teddy bear, the fish, and the cat! I had fun cutting out the shapes. It was a good mix of fun and relaxing. Maybe I should do more blog posts about Play-Doh because I really enjoyed doing this one!

Wonderful lavender slime and a thrift shopping adventure

Hello, my bucket list friends! I have some fun things I want to tell you about. Let’s start with my visit to the slime kitchen last week. On Friday after work my mom and I went to get massages at the mall. We were both in need of some stress relief. In addition tp the massages I really wanted to check out a new place in the mall called the Slime Kitchen. Before this I hadn’t had a lot of experience with slime. I love playdough and I had played with things that were similar to slime a while ago but I have not used slime since it has become very popular in recent years. I heard about the Slime Kitchen on the mall’s Instagram page. It looked fun and interesting. After getting massages and going to Claire’s It was time to go to the slime kitchen. I wasn’t sure how it all worked but the staff was very helpful. I ended up choosing cloud slime and I made it lavender scented! I loved how you got to add two little toys into your slime I chose an ice cream cone and a lollipop! I did enjoy making slime. However, it was $25.00 so I probably won’t do it again but it was worth doing once. The next day I went to Savers to do some thrift shopping! It was more crowded then I expected it to be even for a Saturday. However, I was still able to get some pretty awesome items. Some of my favorite things I got that day are a Barbie collector book,a Barbie horse, some American Girl books, and a chalk book that comes with chalk. I also got another book that is summer themed maybe I can read it before summer ends.

Drawing a summer picture!

Hello, my bucket list friends! Back in 2010 I started drawing a picture to celebrate summer. I did miss 2011 but other than that I’ve been doing it ever since. Today was the day I drew this year’s picture. I used colored pencils and crayons for this year’s picture. I’m really happy with the way my picture looks. I was just kind of making things up as I went when I drew this picture. However, I’m very happy to have this drawing as a part of my art collection.

Cupcake art !

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday, I used my paint sticks again to create another piece of art. I didn’t know what I wanted to make at first so once again I turned to pintrest for inspiration. I decided to make a cupcake after finding easy step by step directions. I had a fun time drawing a huge cupcake with dots on it’s wrapper. The cherry on top is super cute. I’m glad that was included with in the instructions because it made the picture just a little better. I wonder what I will make next.
