Enter No Time for Flash Cards. The ever-helpful and talented EcoMum recently made me aware of this really fun web site with cool crafts and activities for preschoolers. There are lots of simple crafts. There are book recommendations. Nothing takes a ton of prep, nor does it require a whole lot of complicated supplies. So late week, Signal and I set about to make a stuffed monster.
Signal loved it. Loved getting to use the glue stick and the googly eyes especially. Had a lot of fun ripping the paper and stuffing it inside the monster's body. When all was said and done, Rawr Rawr (as Signal named his creation) was born.
Signal did all of the decorating with the exception of drawing the teeth. I thing he did a fantastic job. I especially like how Rawr Rawr's eyes are not at exactly the same level. I think it gives him a rather jaunty air.
Clearly, I need to get into the habit of crafting with Signal more often. I recently came to the realization that the boy is 2 and a half, and has never ever played with play dough! Geez, what kind of Mommy am I? Anyone have a favourite recipe for the home made variety?
