Super Saturday Ideas

Here are a few of the projects that we are doing for our Super Saturday. At least they are the ones that I am helping with.

For the Holiday blocks I found the idea here I thought they were such a cute, fun idea. You can paint them any color you want and leave them out year round. I would do vinyl for these blocks but not the wood (at least not until after Christmas). Really like she said on the blog I got the idea from, it is really a lot cheaper to go to a lumber yard or Home Depot and get them cut for you or cut them yourself and just buy a piece of 4x4 lumber. To have me send them isn't really worth it!
Here is what she said about the blocks:
These 7 wood blocks spell at least 16 different words (and you might be able to find more)that cover every season and almost every holiday.
Here are all the words they can spell:
Harvest-Welcome-Friends-Faith-Family-Spooky-Winter-Freedom-Blessed-Snow-Home-Hope-Monster-Mother-Dream-Easter

The price for the vinyl for this project is $10.00.

This is another cute idea found in the blog world of crafts. We are making 2 different ones. One for Christmas or one that is plain (or generic:). This one, obviously is used to countdown the days til Christmas. The other one has two sides. The bottom says 'simplify' on one side and you can use it for a calendar for everyday. The other side says 'countdown' and you can use it to countdown to a special event, like a vacation or something. All kids love countdowns and seeing how many days are left. You can use it as a calendar until some special event comes up then change it over for a countdown. This is another 4x4 wood project with a 2x4 on the bottom. The price for just the vinyl on this project is $5.00.

This is my sisters project that she is doing (or did) for her Super Saturday (or I think they called it Spiritual Saturday...) She did all the hard work and now I just have to make copies. Everyone loved these and all kids love to look at them. Whether it is to look at the pictures or to read the info on the back, all ages love them...my boys all keep looking through them. There are 3 sets, latter day Prophets, Apostles, and the articles of faith. If you want any of these, email me. I might be able to hook you up:)

This is the other project we are doing. It is a magnet board stand for pictures. We are making it and it includes 2 magnets. Any grandma would love this. It has lots of room for pictures to hang up. The metal is 15"x8" in size. A fun way to put up new pictures and be able to change them out. (we haven't got the magnets done yet!) For this completed project it is $9.00

Our other projects are a wood reindeer, a santa's cookie bucket, a scripture tote and maybe a nativity set. Hopefully I can get pictures of the other projects and can show off our other talented helper for Super Saturday. It is always a fun day that I enjoy helping with!
