Crafting for the co-op

The Wee Boy goes to a co-op preschool, which means it’s heavy on parent involvement. (Understatement???) At the recent business meeting, I volunteered to a request for felt images for stories, you know those felt boards on which teachers use felt figures to tell stories? Well, I said I’d make ’em. A few days later, I got the assignment. I procrastinated, worried that they might be complex, even though the teacher’s note read “outlines are perfect!” Luckily they are easy stories/figures, and I’m almost done with two out of the three books I agreed to do.

They aren’t that much work, but this kind of work is best done when I’m at my best; morning or during nap.  After bed time I’m so tired, mindless knitting or spinning are my best bets.  My goal is to turn them in on Monday, but this is a full weekend with no naps at home scheduled, so we’ll see.

    • Me too! Except I remember them from preschool. I even have my photo with one at my preschool’s Christmas program. My part was the angel, which of course a 3 (4?) year-old would love!
