I had one of those moments again where inspiration hit with a fun idea for the girlies.
So come along and see how sweet an egg carton, bottle caps and a cardboard box can really be, at our Sweet Treats Shop. Pretty tasty!!
Come to the Sweet Treat Shop right down the hallway
for some great homemade (recyclable) treats.
The other picture above was staged but this one wasn't. I thought it was so cute her sitting there waiting for one of us to come by. :)

|Decorate with beads and ribbon ~my girls favorite part~ and there you have it, recyclable Treats.|
For our tea:
The cardboard box for the Sweet Treats Shop window came from our makeshift theater in this post if you all remember. Sometimes I get these ideas in my head and they get bigger and bigger :). This one wasn't too big but it did take time and I wanted to do most of it 'with' the girls and that takes more time, so on the opening day :) of the Sweet Treats Shop not to much house work got done and Isaac spent a lot of the evening with his Baba in order for us girlies to have a 'sweet' time. :)
Being creative with my girls is fun and challenging. I often have the beginning idea and then they continue the idea with this and thats along the way. One challenging thing is 'letting' them create and not try and make them do it my way, the "better" way. Perfection is not the goal it is allowing them to come up with their own ideas and use their God given imagination and creativity to explore and dream up fun things on their own. ~ Always learning.
