A few kids' birthdays ago I printed these out and gave them away as party favors. I printed several different kinds—some of old cars and paper dolls. They all came from the agence eureka's paper craft set over here on flickr. I have linked to them before, and I just can't stop because they have provided us years worth of paper fun.
During a recent playdate there was a natural break and I took out the ones from the party that were never used and they were such a huge hit. I found them by accident, squirrelled away in a drawer. We use scotch tape for making all of these.
This one kills me and was the one my middle child went for. And it is so her.
Some random items-
- We just finished up a search and rescue dog theme, which culminated in us going to the Rose City Dog show last weekend which was crazy fun. We are now on to a double theme of Einstein and Fruit. We have been doing more double themes lately. The last one was Sacagawea and Bridges. I love the mash up of these themes and it works out really well with the multiple interests and makes for a pretty funny library run.
- Is anyone using a good "learn to type" program for their kids? I'm thinking on the computer. Sadie is typing like crazy with her electric typewriter and I'm guessing she would dig a lesson/program but have done no research. It's on my list.
- There is a new apron theme posted over at Tie One On.
- I made a lovely ginger pear sweet potato soup very similar to this. I didn't use the crystalized or powdered ginger, just fresh. In my bowl at the table I added chipotle powder for heat. The kids are coming around. One likes it! The adults love it.
