Cute. We're doing some of that after school today. Gotta make some birthday cards. Now I have to debate whether I want to take three kids to two different store to get gift cards or just send money. Hmmm.
(Love the puppets!)
What's the party tomorrow?

Hi NaDell - Good luck with the bday cards and gifts!! The party is our Enrichment Night tomorrow ... :) I'm in charge of the decorations and am helping with the menu. We're having Chinese so I thought the lanterns would be a fun 'touch'

I have a little imaginaion station project for you! Lately I have taken to making peep boxes from all of the mailings that came inover the holidays. Shoe boxes work well. Make a hole in the top of the box for the light source and cover it with red cellophone so the light is soft and pink, then cut pictures from old calendars for a nice backround on the three back sides of the box. Look through the peephole often as you decide what goes in next, you can make it really 3d looking if you put actual objects in the box, toy cars, ect. and work around them. You can even cut out pictures of your loved ones from photos and put them in the box too! I have done this a few times as a gift, it always goes over well, and costs nothing but a little fun time. I have talked myself into getting off the computer and making one! Toodles! Love from Mrs. Slug at Slug's Rest in Oregon!
