DD's projects and a challenge blog for kids

My DD is going to enter this card in the Little Hands Do Crafts challenge #2 animals. She did this card completely by herself, including using the paper cutter (with supervision). If you haven't seen it, this is a new challenge blog that encourages kids to get involved with crafting. (Thank you Rhonda from SBS29 for giving me the heads up.)

She also has been very busy the past week working on her first research paper and poster board for school. (Yes, 2nd grade!) The paper was due last Friday and her poster board is due next Friday but we decided to get it done this week end. (They were encouraged to type the information for the board and had to use at least 5 pictures.) We helped, but she did the research, filled out the questionnaire for the paper, chose and arranged the info. I did print out the letters using my Cricut to help her. My husband also suggested getting one of those greeting cards where you can record a message but using cougar sounds from the internet. She really enjoyed doing this project and is looking forward to her presentation next week. (Funny fact: My first research paper (that I remember) was on cougars.... Strange how that happens.)

I'll be back tomorrow with my Lindsay's Stamp Stuff DT post.
