Just before school got out for summer vacation Amara and I talked about what we might want to do together. The two of us spent one Sunday morning looking for craft ideas. Her school’s website had lots of links to fun crafts and after much discussion we printed out a bunch that we wanted to try. We spent the rest of that morning going through her craft drawers. She cleaned and reorganized everything while making out a list of all of the supplies we might need that we didn’t already have. Who knew that when her Mommy picked her up later that they would head to Michael’s and Joann’s to get them? Thank you Jenna! While we haven’t gotten all our projects done — yet — we sure have had fun. I just haven’t had a chance to blog about all of it!
So let me start by telling you about the puppets!
When Amara first printed out the instructions for the puppets I was not overly enthused so of course this was the first project she wanted to work on! I think she wanted to do this because she was going to use up the brown bags I used to use for packing Grampy’s lunch and that I no longer needed! We had such a good time with this! It was fun just sitting at the table discussing what the puppets should look like and in some cases what their personalities were like. Just wonderful quality time working together and talking.
Amara is still planning to write a play that we can act out using all of the puppets. We just haven’t gotten to that yet.
We’ve been busy with other shenanigans!
