all for the boys- finally a blogger who has crafts & activities JUST for boys!! and she has a little icon that shows how many minutes of bliss different activities give you. ;)
The Brooding Hen: Tiny bow & arrow. Fair Play badge. Fun but a little hard for some. We made markers out of paper and kept score of how far they would go. I would do it again. I made them ahead of time. It would have been too hard for the Brownies to make I think. The older girls might could do it.
A website for those of us who want to do crafts for BOYS! Yay!

To make firework shapes, "squirt blobs of diluted crafts glue onto a sheet of black foam. Then blow through a flexible straw to spread the glue and to create interesting starburst shapes. Sprinkle colored sand on the glue; let dry. Repeat with more glue and sand colors to layer your faux fireworks display." Love this idea!
