I was at the state fair yesterday. Let's just say it was "interesting". It was also incredibly hot. I did get to try mini doughnut beer... it was delicious. http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2013/08/16/mini-donut-beer-arrives-in-time-for-state-fair/ And yes, it really did taste like a mini doughnut. Today is my first day with my little 3 year old preschoolers. It is going to be a busy one! Yesterday, I shared a mod podged barn, today I have a cute paper barn project.
In Minnesota, there are barns everywhere. I just love them. Some of the barns in our county have quilts painted on them...
Today we are going to make a construction paper barn with a few basic shapes.
I used yellow mesh for straw, but you could use yarn or strips of paper too.
Every barn needs a rooster!
