Doesn't he make you smile?
Maybe this is the real reason I stay home with the girls...I like to make paper bag puppets!
In all seriousness, my 2 1/2 year old put this together earlier this week. It was super simple, and even though I did most of the work, she had a lot of fun watching and playing with the finished project. Now I don't want anyone thinking I'm super crafty mom (that would definitely be giving the wrong impression!), I'm just resourceful-- I picked up this kit at Wal-Mart for $2.00. It's from the "Martha Stewart Create" collection and they have a wide variety of animals-- zoo animals, farm animals, birds, etc. We have a bear and a dalmation yet to create.
The best part, there is no tape or glue or scissors involved! Everything is pre-cut and self-adhesive.
If the girls were older I thought it would be fun for them to have a little puppet show-- create a bunch of them, put a little stage together and prance and dance them around!
Maybe we'll table that for a rainy day...
here is a link to them on amazon...although Wal Mart or a craft store is probably cheaper:
p.s. I almost titled this entry, "What I Did With my College Degree Today" but I figured I'd downplay the sarcasm for now...but really, don't you have those thoughts sometimes?
