CAMP CRAFT: OJO DE DIOS

What better way to end camp week here on the blog than with a craft project. Do you remember making Ojo de Dios, or God's eyes, when you were younger? These woven objects have an ancient, spiritual origin and are still made in celebration and given as gifts to bless a new home (or kids room). These "Eyes of God" are believed to see and understand things unknown to the physical eye...and who doesn't need additional eyes on their kids, especially during naptime? The technique is not hard at all, here is the link I used, and is actually quite addicting once you get going. Hanging them from a branch for display also provides a great opportunity to get outside and go "stick hunting" with the little ones, a favorite past time these days. Have a great weekend and try to get out and explore! (P.S. Yes, that is a band aid plastered across my littlest guy's head...if you have a one year old who is new to walking you understand. Below is maybe my favorite shot from the project).
