Where are the headband photos, you say? I'll just reply that I'm sorry, I got distracted. Can you imagine being distracted when you have five kids? And snow outside? (See the sledding track behind the deer? This is right behind our backyard.)
I also made a skirt for my two-year-old. Pictures of that to come, too. It is a pattern from Girly Style Wardrobe, a Japanese sewing book. The skirt had to get worn right away, which naturally follows that it had to get dirty, and had to get washed. It's in the dryer at the moment.
For now, go and try this snowflake. I learned how to make these years ago from an issue of Family Fun magazine. The best part about these is that you can make them any size you want, and any color. I'm going to get the kids busy and see if we can do some really big ones using some of my 12" scrapbook paper.
After they finish playing "boat tent" that is. Boat tent is one of those games they never tire of. They made it up themselves - part don't-touch-the-floor, part fort-out-of-couch-cushions, part blanket-tent-camping, part Noah's ark. The main structures are held up by the coffee table and the card table, with lots of clothespins and sheets, etc. It takes over the entire room, but is easy to clean up, and occupies them for hours. Without television. Amazing.
