The Odd Life of Timothy Green

I don't know about you but, I really, really want to see this movie!!

Since just the trailer makes me cry..... I can't imagine how many tissues I'll need for the whole movie!

I love Jennifer Garner!! I never miss her movies!! So of course... I can't WAIT for this MOVIE!!!!!!!

 While we wait for this one to come out on August 15th, here are a couple of fun things to do with the kids!

“Hunny” Bee Cookies
12 Round Cookies
1 and 1/2 cups Light-Blue Frosting
1 bag TWIX ® Mini Candies
12 Marshmallows
1/2 cup Yellow Frosting

Step 1: Frost 12 round cookies (we used Keebler® Sandies® Pecan Shortbread) with 1 and 1/2 cups light-blue frosting and place a Twix Mini in the center of each.

Step 2: For the wings, use scissors to cut the ends from 12
marshmallows, then press them onto the cookies, sticky side down.
Step 3: Spoon 1/2 cup yellow frosting into a ziplock sandwich
bag, snip off a corner, and pipe stripes onto the bees.

I love this craft!!  I love this one so much I want to hint at Lael.... NaNa needs one of these for her kitchen window!! (Please?!!?)

“The Odd Life of Timothy Green” Leaf Craft

Two to Four 12-inch sticks
Two to Four 6-inch sticks
Silk leaves (any color you choose)
Brown thread and needle
Brown twine or yarn

Step 1: Start by arranging your sticks into a rectangle. In this diagram, we used two sticks on each side of the rectangle, but only one stick is required.

Step 2: Tie the ends of the sticks together with brown thread or yarn. You can also use glue to secure your sticks. 

Step 3: Place the stick frame on a work surface. Glue the leaves together so they overlap in several areas and fill the frame window. Be careful not to glue the leaves to the work surface.

Step 4: Using a needle and brown thread, attach each corner of the glued leaves to the stick frame.
Use yarn or string to hang your leaf frame outside or in a sunny window.
