Easy DIY Washi Tape Puppets plus More Adventures...

Hi friends!

I hope you all are having a fabulous summer.  We just got back from a vacation, and I wanted to share some of it with you.   More specifically, I want to share a fun project that we did while on vacation, that required ZERO!! of my help.  It was such a hit, and totally last minute.  

But before we get into craft zone, I want to talk a little bit about our trip north up the California coast!  We went along highway 1, which is a super scenic route along the California Coast.  It is breathtakingly beautiful, and we found the beaches to be isolated and full of wildlife to observe.  

 We stopped at the Point Arena lighthouse, where we were able to climb up to the top and get a beautiful 360 view of the area.  The sun even came out while we were there!

 We stayed in Sea Ranch in this lovely house which had an indoor window from the second story bedroom.  The kids were totally excited by the house, as it was the perfect place to hold a puppet show!! 

 Before leaving for Sea Ranch, I realized that I wanted some sort of craft project for the kids to do while we were there.  I threw some tongue depressor/Popsicle sticks, markers, and washi tape into my bag, thinking that the kids might be able to make something out of them.  The kids' imaginations totally went CRAZY with this project.  They spent HOURS making puppets and holding puppet shows out of the cool indoor windows in the house. 

 I love what they came up with, don't you?  There was this adorable lion, mermaids, fairies, and more!  I love that they made accessories for the puppets too, like guitars, and purses!

It was such a fun trip for these kiddos....filled with crafts, nature, extended family, and beautiful scenery.

Hope you all are having a wonderful summer, and that this simple summer project excites your kids as much as it did mine!  Sometimes the simple projects really are the best ones.
