My grandson taught us a painting technique using oil pastels and watercolors... I had found a pattern in Cloth Paper Scissors and we set about making these cute boxes Grandson did all the sewing on his box here, including cross sewing to have a quilted look to it. all I did was cut out the original patterns and put in the brads...
They were! They became familiar with the presser foot and how to go slow and more quickly,
keeping their hands out of the needles' path, but still able to guide their fabric/paper making
a straight line. They learned about bobbins, thread the needle, and even cleaned the area with a pipe cleaner.
They picked out their own fabrics.
Both are careful with scissors and did a perfect job.
The rain cooperated and we went out in it for a wet walk to the park.
They are faking coming home in the cold. GD loves all the dolls I have collected and saved for her. She finds them each visit
and enjoys dressing them, talking to them and including her favorite from home monkey
"Mono" in the group play.
Grandson loves this farm set now put away. I laid out an early quilt of mine thinking it would protect the floor, but also looked like an aerial view of farmland. They agreed
claiming the blue parts for water.
We also read stories, had plenty of cuddle time, G-son had music time with grandpa on the guitar, and both played the zither with sheet music that fits under the wires and they strum accordingly recognizing many songs.
For lunch we dined on peanut butter, jelly and banana sandwiches on Jewish Rye bread
talking Hebrew, they knowing more and more words now and open to learning
It is so much fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So much fun!
