Here's my answer to Finn's question:
Turns out, our days are pretty simple. Simple enough to be described by one or two main activities a day, in three year-old terms. In my terms, it's more like "wakeupprocessphotosbloggoforarunshowerpacklunchremembertoscrubthepoopoffofthatdiaperetc ..."
But isn't it nice to look at it like this instead? I think so, too.
I've edited out the name of Finn's Waldorf nursery as well as a friend's name, but here's the low-down:
- Everything I used here was found either in my scrap fabric pile or in my art closet, except for the metal clasps - I think they're called findings? - which I found at Michael's and hot-glued to the activity squares.
What you'll need:
-smooth stones, one for each child
-mat board. I found mine a while back at the Scrap Exchange, a creative reuse center
-fabric and paper scraps
-one larger piece of fabric (brown linen in my case)
-thin cardboard - cereal box thin (this is for the brown labels)
-hot glue gun
-metal findings, both rings and clasps
-acrylic paints or other paints if you wish
-Micron pen for little details
-random stuff around the house
-felted wool sweater for the "day" pockets for the stones
Go at it! I can't really give you any specific instructions other than I used collage, got crazy with the Mod Podge and hot glue, and had a lot of fun doing it!
Happy weekending, y'all.
