Take-A-Look Tuesday

Can't wait to see what everyone's been up to -  - and who will be the most viewed link - maybe you?
- - just a run down- -
  • Link to a Specific Post, not your whole blog - no more than a couple of posts please
  • Please don't link up anything you've already linked before (like something posted on a previous week)
  • Try to visit a few other people at the party  - everyone loves visits and encouraging comments!
If you're new to link-ups and have questions let me know and I'll do my best to help

What I've done in 2012

So earlier I mentioned what the top posts of 2012 were.....all awesome.  But I did a bunch more stuff in 2012, and didn't  post tutorials on them because I used tutorials on other blogs.  I have a whole Pinterest Board dedicated to this, called "ACCOMPLISHED THESE PROJECTS!"  click that link to check out what I've been able to do - here's a sneak peek...

And if that, and this morning isn't enough, here's some other things to take a look at...

Ideas for Kids

Moving on to my board of things kid related, here are 13 Kid Projects that I want to help my kiddos accomplish in 2013...

This headband holder from FunnyGirlDesigns - I think my girls could attempt to make something similar, AND it would solve our massive headband storage problem.  In theory.

Make bouncy balls, as shown at Curbly - because that's just cool:

I can't get over the cuteness of these tiny bow and arrows at The Brooding Hen - a rare project that is both cute to me and cool to my 10 year old:

Get Trevor to make a Skateboard Swing, like at CedarWorks:

For a summer project, make a ton of Tin Can Windsocks like Random Thoughts of a Supermom:

Make tons of puzzles and then put them together again and again... see details on the picture puzzle at Impress Your Kids:
father's day craft

Tell the kids what a Lava Lamp is, then make one - like S.L.Smith (I don't know why this picture got squished!)

Make Marble Races, then maybe they'll play with them for hours... tutorial at A Girl and A Glue Gun:

Picnic at the Drive-In - cutely seen at Oh, Hello Friend - I can only do the drive-in every other year or so, so I guess I have to go this year...

Drive in movie picnic..

Glowstick Ring toss - - this has GOT to be fun!  Over at Momma Did It:
