I recently bought this charming book filled with ideas and patterns for making animals out of socks and gloves. One night this week N. and I decided to have craft night and work on one of the animals. We chose to make the dog that's on the cover. I like that I can sew the animals by hand and do not need a sewing machine. N. did a good job stuffing the body of the dog.
We only made it to step #3 during our craft night. Hopefully this weekend we can get a bit further along.
N. is making plans for us to work on these in the future.
Craft night was a lot of fun. We are considering setting aside one night during the week for craft night until the weather gets warmer. This week seemed to be about themes, as we also had a movie night (we watched Night at the Museum) and a reading night, where we read a lot of information about dinosaurs.
Speaking of dinosaurs, last night was Dinosaur Night at N.'s school. His class had a dinosaur museum, where they showed off their dioramas, fossils they made, books they wrote, and various other things. After the museum, the parents were treated to dinosaur songs followed by an ice cream social. It was a lot of fun. N. is a little sad that the dinosaur unit is over. Thanks for your very nice comments about his diorama; he was happy to hear that everyone liked the pictures of his happy dinosaurs!
This weekend I am meeting up with my friend Rachel for a day of lunch and shopping. And I need to work on N.'s glove dog. Maybe I'll feel like beading, too. Lately I've been in a bit of a beading funk.
