Jana Williams says
These Crafts are Absolutely Adorable & It Makes Me Want to Be a Kid Again but Who Am I Kidding, I Still Love Arts & Crafts Today! LOL! It’s Kind Of Sad that a Lot Kids These Days Only Want to Play on Their Computer or Video Games and They Don’t Get Outside to See God’s Beautiful Masterpiece & They Don’t Do Something that Requires Them to Use Their Imagination or to Spend Time with Their Family! I Know All Kids are Like that but Some of them are, Even My Nephew Would Rather Play on His Phone than to Go Outside for Some Fresh Air, It’s Just Kind of Sad! I Used to Love Playing Outside with Friends or if I Was Alone I Would Use My Imagination & Create My Own Fun & My Own Games! Well I Guess Those Days are Gone but Maybe When My Nieces are a Little Older They Will Want to Spend More Time with Their Good Ole Aunt b/c Right Now it’s Just Not Cool! LOL! Great Post My Friend, Have a Blessed Day! – Jana
