Two more birds.

They're not perfect but I'm sure the boys will enjoy them. I have four now. I'm hoping for seven.

Taurus the bull

I added Ls bull on his crown for Taurus. Next is his birth flower.

Birds for spring

For Easter/ Springster I like to make the kids a series of things. Last year it was rainbow wool bunnies. This year I'm making realistic felt birds. I'll have to like the website I'm getting the patterns from.

Year of the rabbit

I've begun work on L's birthday crown. Like his brother it will have his year, sign, flower, and gem. I just finished the year of the rabbit. Next up is a bill for taurus.

Desert playmat

We have made progress on our desert playmat. I made two cactuses out of wool felt and knitted one. K and I have plans for a lizard, snake, and a little person with a tent.

Egypt bin

K has fallen in love with ancient Egypt. Let me tell you how hat it is to make a bin and fin things for it. We bought a pack o plastic Egypt figures and went from there. K and I made the pyramids out of tape, cardboard, and paint. The mirror was found at good will and painted. We made wraps (to make mummies) out of white cloth. The sand is from lake mi. I've also added a couple of little skeletons to make into mummies.
I'm hoping I don't regret using sand. Especially since my little guy throws everything.
