The other day, Radeo and I packed up some adventure supplies, headed over to Central Park for a crafting picnic!It was a little rainy, she used the skills that she gained from watching episodes of Man Vs Wild and I used the skills I got from years of obsession with Martha Stewart left us with the a fun tent friend to keep us dry!
We gathered a couple of thick broken pieces of wood and attached them to a sturdy low hanging tree branch. Radeo found some vines with leaves attached and strung them around the wooden posts. While she was doing the important grunt work, I saved the environment by cutting some leaves of my own. I folded construction paper into 4ths, cut them to get 4 leaves per paper sheet, taped them into rows, then strung them to each other (and the tent) with thread!
The tent did a GREAT job at keeping us from getting to soggy in the rain.
It also gave us a place to observe young men who were canoodling around us.
Our picnic involved:
- some peanut butter and jelly “sammies”
- gummy bears
- chips and salsa
- Milano cookies
I finally found a use for the iPad I got for my birthday when I realized the speaker is loud enough to play music off of.
My playlist involved a lot of:
