these photos were taken awhile ago and for some reason i never posted them.
i got the idea from one of my favorite blogs, childhood magic...which is sadly gone from the blog world.
(and i know for a fact a lot of moms miss your blog Ariella!)
this project we actually used for a birthday present for one of emmett's friends when we are a little tight on money....and I think handmade presents are way better....
we collected some thick sticks and then dad used his saw to cut them.
mom & dad painted "matches" on the pieces. we used acyclic paint and painted a base of white first... then let it dry....then painted the color. acyclic dries really fast!
we tied it up in a piece of fabric. the fabric also acts as the "board" to play memory game on!
