July's Theme!

With it being so HOT and DRY here, my mind keeps wandering back to the water.......and since I had a requested theme that goes with the water, I thought we would revisit it!

By looking at the matchbox below can you guess what it is?

That's right! Although we did a mermaid last year, there are so many types of water maidens, I think any one of us could play with the theme and come up with something perfect and/or perfectly different!

July's theme is mermaid, siren, water sprite or water nymph.

July's challenge... Make dotee doll and incorporate the colors of the sea

July's activity...enjoy a water based activity.
If you are TOTALLY land locked with no local pool, try playing in the hose while washing your car, have a balloon fight, or run through the sprinklers with the kids.

"...surely woman rose from the frothy sea, as resplendent as Aphrodite on her scalloped chariot."
Margot Datz (A Survival Guide for Landlocked Mermaids)

Ooooo! I'm so excited! I can't wait to try a dotee doll. This is the perfect theme for July! Are we swapping? If so I'm in!
Too bad I need to finish cleaning and organizing the house today I'd love to start creating right now!
