14 Lovely Days: Day 2
Well, we've been living in the land of the crud all week and the last 2 days I've had all three home sick. Cabin fever is setting in! I tried really hard to keep the peace today.

Little Fingers and Toes

Paper Plate Shark Craft
Our craft today, started with D (age 8), fringing the edge of a folded paper plate, in triangles. Then folding them down, to make a shark's jaw. As he colored the outside gray, he was trying to figure out how to attach google eyes, without making the tooth-filled mouth, look like a crab, or too much like his monster mouth craft. Finally, he decided it needed a body. So, I cut a simple fish-like outline, from blue construction paper, while he worked on drawing, and cutting out, a small snack…
