Simple Craft

On a weekend not long ago, Kyle wanted to do something fun with Alaina (other than going out in the single digit weather). We found a fun and simple craft idea that was actually do-able with a two year old!

We cut the fingers off a rubber glove and drew faces on them for finger puppets. Our colored markers didn't work very well, but the sharpie was great.

Alaina enjoyed it, but I think Kyle and I had the most fun! The Girl spent most of the time watching us play with the puppets.

Now that the chicken-footed man has slipped past security into the presence of the queen, what will he do? To be continued . . .

(Considering the age of the audience, I can assure you it won't be anything scary or stressful. I'm guessing he probably wanted to borrow the royal dehydrator to preserve the rest of his strawberry crop.)

I'm glad Kyle reminds me to make room for fun times like these. Such fun!

The fun thing about a blog is that you get to view a small part of your life. Thanks for sharing her. She is just a sweetie :)
