I haven't been doing a very good job of documenting my crafting lately, but here are a few pictures of some of the latest goodies I've made for John.
Two gnomes, two pumpkins and a toadstool for our fall nature table (if I ever find a place to put the fall nature table lol). I got the ideas and patterns from Twig and Toadstool, an awesome crafting and Waldorf blog.
I made these little pumpkins for a 5 Little Pumpkins fingerplay
5 little pumpkins sat on a gate
The first one said, "oh my, it's getting late."
The second one said, "There are witches in the air."
The third one said, "well, I don't care."
The fourth one said, "let's run and run and run."
The fifth one said, "isn't Halloween fun!"
Then WHOOSH went the wind
and OUT went the lights
and the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
John has been enamored of these guys and really likes to help me say the rhyme.
John and Daddy built a LEGO firetruck, so I made this little felt building and flames so John could put out the fire.
I have to get started on holiday crafts soon. I am going to attempt to make almost all of John's Christmas gifts this year. The only exception will be his one gift from Santa. He has been talking about a big LEGO tractor and asking that Santa get it for him. We will see...
P.S. I am going with Josh to pick up John in about two hours. I am not 100% yet, but definitely well enough to take back mommy duties :)
