ABC and 123's Picnic Talk

Hello! 4CK's is participating in ABC and 123's Picnic Talk today. Welcome!


4 Crazy Kings features mainly kids craft projects with some Mommy made crafts and family photos thrown in. I am a former High School Art Teacher and am now a SAHM. I have two little bean sprouts Lu & Em and an amazing husband. Together we make up the 4 crazy Kings. I am pretty much the only one guilty of being crazy in the family but since they are along for the ride -- that makes them crazy by association! This blog chronicles all our creative and crazy adventures.

I have been a fan of ABC & 123 since the very beginning. I think pretty much anything the Katie's do is pretty amazing. Enjoy the picnic! Mama King

Crafty Picnic Idea: We are always on the look out for fun materials we can craft with. So we always bring a pail along for the girls to fill with their found treasures.
  • Rocks can be painted to look like lady bugs and bumble bees
  • Leaves can be used for rubbings
  • Pine cones are great for bird feeders (smear with peanut butter & roll in seeds) or paint and glue feathers to to make your own bird.
  • Sea shells and drift wood make a great mobile
  • Sticks, Rocks, Acorns & Leaves make great building materials for a fairy house your kids can build and leave at your picnic site.
So always keep your eyes open and happy hunting!

You can send over some of the height any time! I like to think I'm five two, but I probably fall a little short of that even☺ It's funny when the word verifications seem related, my friend Vickie got unest once and thought was pretty funny.

We just pulled up a lot of rocks from our front yard to re-landscape the front. We ought to save a few rocks for painting. :)

It was fun to get to know you. I love your idea for reusing junk mail and making activity books. I am definitely going to try that. Happy picnicing!

I am excited to find your blog following ABC Picnic introductions. Congratulations on finalizing the adoption of your beautiful girl, and I will be coming back for craft ideas. I am the least craftiest person in the world, but there must be something that my 2.5 and I can learn to do together :)
