So come take a peek inside the books with me! I will share some helpful hints at the end of this post...
And here are the 4 kids... John, Celeste, Kara, and ME. Isn't that flag a beauty?!
If you would like to make your own bus applique, you can download my template here. Don't laugh... I am definitely no artist! But I took this pattern seriously. I used a ruler and everything! So I hope it helps.
Hello, my friends! I am beginning to see the end of the pile of laundry. I have food in the fridge and even a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies baked up! That's progress! Now Little Man just needs to get used to going to bed early again!! The joys of coming home from va-cay!
Remember these little guys:
It's no secret that I love visual aids to help me sing with Little Man!! Now say hello to our newest friend:
This was so easy and fun to make!
I created the face on a black felt circle. I made some silly googly eyes and a mouth with a tongue because I wanted this to be a silly spider. Honestly, spiders are not my favorite creature in the whole world, so I wanted it to be goofy instead of scary!
I stuck the pipe cleaner legs in between the face and another black felt circle, and sewed almost all the way around. Before closing up the circles, I stuck in a bag full of rice to create a bean bag, and then sewed up the rest! I curled up the legs so they would be as creepy and crawly as possible... and that's it! Easy breezy!
