felt board and a pumpkin patch

i realize that this puts me (even more than i already am) into dorky, crafty mom category, but we made felt boards today.  they were super dorky and ghetto, but the kids loved them!  ben had a dragon and avery & sass had a princess, a castle and even a handsome prince.

i just stole some cardboard from a box out of my neighbors trash and covered it in felt that i have so much of.  and then we cut out all the people and their clothes.
it was a fun project, but we didnt get out of our wal mart halloween pajamas all morning.
this weekend jeff was on working friday night and sunday night and sleeping saturday, so we found out everything fun in tyler to do on our own.
we found a pumpkin patch (that took us over an hour to get to because we got so lost...thats another story...) and the kids loved it.
they had one horse that they loved.

I want to try making those felt boards! I think the boys might really like them. I need more details though. Such a cute idea!!

Love the felt boards...I should totally do this with all my left over felt...and your kids are so stinking cute! I love the face painting...I am sure Kinley would have cried at that until I let her get down too.
