Crafts in the morning

puppet show

We have a craft book - It was given to us by a friend, A. found it last night and we looked through it together. This morning she hopped out of bed and her first words were "can we do something from the book". I held out for breakfast and a shower first... 
Their first choice was snowflakes.... Since it's in the mid 90's today I can understand that, but I suggested we save that one for winter. This was the winning choice - puppets made from wooden spoons. After a quick trip to the dollar store the kitchen table became our workshop. In no time at all with the help of my trusty glue gun, the crafting dream became a reality.
Then came the theatre.
My favorite show was "Laina why are you a fork" it went something like this.
Raina - Laina where are you
Laina - here I am
Raina- Why are you a fork
Laina- I don't know, they made me that way.
The end...

ok, maybe you had to be there.....


Then it was Mom's turn at the crafting table...

Awesome headbands! I need a little granddaughter to use your wonderful creations on. I can dream!!
I can't wait until Ty is a little older so we can enjoy crafting together.

I am behind on reading your blog and now I can see how those puppets came into being. What a great time we had with them! I think some of their puppet scripting skills come from Grampa! Lots of laughs from him and the girls. I miss them!
