I'm looking forward to spending a bit of time with my two grandsons. The three year old is ALL boy......and the 3 month old is of course in the perfect snuggling stage.My suitcase will be packed with some felting supplies....the goal.....to make some snakes. This should be a project suitable for the hand/eye coordination of a 3 yr. old, and hopefully provide quick enough results before boredom sets in.
To speed that up, I decided to make some felted 'cores'. So then all we have to do is wrap wool roving around the outside and do the final wet felting stage. For the final touch on this sample, I needle felted the eyes.....which of course is not a step a child can or should try to do.
As long as the felting supplies were out......I made a couple of bowls. I haven't played too much with locks, curls, or wool neeps that add another decorative dimension. It was easier than I expected and I like the look!
I'm guessing there will be lots of creative projects flowing from studios right about now....so check out these links: Nina-Marie's Off The Wall Friday, Richard and Tanya Quilts, Crazy Mom Sews, Whoop, Whoop Friday.
