I looked after my four oldest grandchildren for about 8 days, while their parents went to Spain with some friends :)
I cherished the time I was able to spend with them!
This is Kennedy, she's 10 years old, in 5th grade.
I was able to go to school and see her at her science fair, and go to her Valentine's party too!
This is Charlotte, she's 7 and is in the 2nd grade.
I went to Charlotte's Valentine party at school also :)
This is Bridger, he's 12 and in the 7th grade at middle school.
I went to parent/teacher conference with him.
His teachers sang high praises of him the whole time!
Why are these kids concentrating so hard?
The "Cute" book!!!
They loved the Cute book!
I taught them all my magic way of knotting a thread.
Bridger made the "kidnapper". His job is to steal kids.
(That's what it says in the book, lol!)
Bridger made the Kidnapper, Lorenzo the lizard, and the Sprite.
He did all the sewing himself, I just did the embroidered faces :)
He takes a sewing class at school.
Kennedy made a bear and a bunny.
She kept disappearing, because she couldn't keep away from the little magnetic paper doll set that I brought!
She loves paper dolls more than anything!!!
Charlotte made 5 little cuties!
Pinkie, bird and bunny.
She did a lot of stitching herself :)
She stitched the monkey entirely by herself, I think she did a great job!!!
Charlotte couldn't stop laughing, because the instructions said to glue the panda's tail to it's "butt", lol.
Lucy made the bear and the liar.
Well, maybe I made them :)
This photo shows how small the little animals are.
The children has a wonderful time choosing the colors of felt for each little animal.
Lucy is 4, and she loved these little animals.
She wanted to make the liar, the kidnapper and the bad guy!
The Kidnapper was really hard to make, so she had to settle for the bear :)
Lucy is getting into character :)
Part of the fun was decorating altoid tins for their little homes, and sewing a pillow to put under their heads.
A fun time was had by all, our dining room table was a mess for a few days.
Making these animals was so much fun and helped the children keep their minds from missing their parents.
Their next project might be a bag or a mini quilt :)
