I Spy Tree
Made using all the stuff in my junk drawer.
Key Book
Try to find what is in here!

We are doing it for one of our Super Saturday classes. I actually made this last year.My friend Storm featured this on her blog last year.
EYE SPY INSTRUCTIONS
I bought a 24 inch styro cone and cleaned out my junk drawer, the bottom of toy boxes and shelves etc. Then I started gluing things on the cone with hot glue. It was quite fun!I started at the bottom and worked up, then I added things and layered some.I had a lamp turner oner that was from an old lamp of my mom's that I added to the top so I could hook the little book of what is on the tree to it. Then I sprayed it all red, made the key book and it was finished!A few ideas:Plastic spoon with cheerios in it, a sucker, keys, toys, jewelry, screws, toy pieces, toothbursh, mini anything, etc.
