Making Summer Memories
Amazingly we have had some gloriously sunny days here in Sussex, so we’ve spent a few lovely days at the beach.
The boys have been having a ton of fun chasing seagulls, hilarious!
Throwing stones in to the sea is also something that they love, they both go for ridiculously large stones, almost the size of their own heads, but they look so proud when they throw them…an inch, bless!
Between chasing after the boys and trying to keep hold of my flip flops I was for no particular reason collecting smallish, flatish white / grey stones.
After the boys blocked up the drain with a ton of stones the other week, I knew that I couldn’t leave them around the house or goodness knows where they would end up!
Having sat playing around with them I figured I could turn them into a memento of this summer.
Layering them up in to 4 stacks of 4 stones, I made a mummy, daddy, kiddo and kiddo figure.
I used hot glue to stick the stones atop of each other.
I’ve sat them in front of this huge jar I have of stones and shells from other days out / holidays.
I love the simplicity of the project, but more than that how these capture our summer this year!
What are you working on to remember this summer?
And I just have to say, how frickin amazing do stones look when photographed?!
