now that malia is beyond preschool art, we can do all kinds of arts & crafts together. but we usually have to wait until micah is sleeping because he sticks to me like static cling or wants to touch everything that he's not supposed to. so during his nap today, malia and i did some a&c, perfect for a rainy day. we did DIY shrinky dinks, which we'll have to do more of when i get more plastic take-out boxes because it was fun. then i remembered i had some felt flower kits i bought a while ago. sometimes i forget how old she is and that she can read the directions and do it all on her own, glue and all. she made a felt flower clip and a ring. they turned out really nice.
