April Showers Bring... Umbrellas!

I'm sure you have heard the old saying "April showers bring May flowers". Well, I think we will get ready for some April showers. Today I created an April Showers glyph that I plan on sharing with you on Monday. I'll give you a little sneak peak of what to expect on Monday below.

My kiddos had so much fun making their umbrellas! We have used up all of our glue sticks... so we had to use the dreaded bottles of Elmer's glue. Why can't students just use a little dab of glue!!! Some of my little angels tried to use a whole bottle of glue to attach just one raindrop! (I'm exaggerating...but really, they do not seem to understand the difference between just a dot of glue and a huge blob of glue!) 
I think the raffia bows add just that extra bit of flair that makes the umbrella craft stand out. My next craftivity will be...did you guess May flowers? If you did, you are probably correct!

Thanks for visiting,

Happy Birthday to me and... a Flower Clip Art Freebie!!!

I have come to the realization that I have several addictions...

1. I'm addicted to Teachers Pay Teachers.
2. I'm addicted to creating new files for my TpT store.
3. I'm addicted to creating clip art for my Teachers Pay Teachers files.

Whew...what a relieve to get that out in the open! LOL

Care to guess what today is? Did anyone guess that today is my birthday? If you did, you guessed correctly! To celebrate my birthday, I'm giving away a free gift to anyone that wishes to download it! My gift to you is a free flower clip art file. My favorite is the little bird looking at the flower...
Included in the file are 6 colorful flowers and 6 black and white flowers .png files.
To download the file, click on the picture below. It will take you to my TpT store.

I decided to join the Manic Monday linky once again!
