In a Yellow House Photo Challenge: Arts -n- Crafts

I saw Ashley, over at Ramblings and Photos, had a new post with some beautiful photos using oil pastels, a medium I love, then I saw it was for a arts and craft challenge.

I hoping I would have time to do a drawing for the contest but Rachel, my 4 year old, saw the photos and asked what they were. She said SHE had just the craft. She ran upstairs and got her raccoon. This is a craft we did over a month ago. It has brought loads of entertainment over the past few weeks. Every time she shows it to Rob he screams and shouts "No, raccoons in the house!" "how many times have I told you we don't keep raccoons in the house" and of course she falls into fits of giggles screaming in return "its just a craft!". So, here is Rachel's craft. :)

To see more wonderful craft entries head on over to the Yellow House


  1. That's such a cute story!
    DH actually had a pet raccoon as a kid. It lived in the house. I told him our kids will never had that option.

  2. HAHAHA, that is too cute! Glad that this week could be a family participation week. :)

  3. HA. My mom and her siblings had a pet monkey. Crazy pets!
