OMIGOSH THOSE CHEEKS!!!
Anyway - so Mommy Tip Monday - PUPPETS!
Those are all handmade sock puppets - a zebra, an alligator, and a snake. (Only the alligator has eyeballs left. The other two are blind.)
They are obviously very easy to make. Just use all those lonely socks that have lost their mates to the Dryer Monster. Draw or glue on details - yarn for hair, googly eyes, etc. - and presto! Instant fun.
I got a puppet theater for Christmas last year (thanks Stephanie! We seriously use it all the time), but you can make your own using a pillowcase and string - which is what we did before we got all FANCY. Just tape the string across a doorway and drape two pillowcases over it. Ta-da! Curtains.
Ouro Branco likes playing peek-a-boo with our chic-y theater.
