What to muse about today?

She looks so small in there

This morning, my phone told me there was a Kids Craft at Michael’s. Ashlin was napping, so I took Teagan and we went. Teagan was very excited, she loves doing arts and crafts. When we got there she was the only kid, there weren’t any others there. I’m not sure if there were any other kids before we got there. Crazy! For two dollars, they entertain your kid for 30 minutes while you shop. I guess that it works out for them, but still.

I got Teagan settled in, and the craft helper said that if there were any issues with her behaving they’d page me. Teagan was a bit daunted by the idea that the entire store would hear that she was being bad, and promised to be good, with her listening ears turned on.

While I browsed the yarn selection, looking for colors for a blanket for Ashlin, Teagan did water color. She painted this picture, a self-portrait. She’s in the lower left corner, with green hands and black hair. There are raindrops falling down, and a black puddle. The hearts she glued on are a tree, and the circle underneath is either the trunk and roots or a bucket that the tree is planted in.



The watercolor was a bonus. The craft was a heart mobile, with watercolor hearts matched with pink heart cut outs. I think the lady helped cut the hearts out, though Teagan can use scissors. She did tell me that this was the first time she used glue, and not a glue stick. That made her really happy.


Heart mobile

She initially wanted to keep the paper the hearts were cut from glued onto the bottom heart. Eventually she allowed us to take the scrap off, so that the mobile wouldn’t break from being too heavy. The hearts wouldn’t be able to blow in the breeze.

Teagan wants to go to the next one. We’ll try to make it.

    That is too awesome! G isn’t much of the artsy type but perhaps with T’s lead, if you ever go again and want company, pick me, pick me!

      The next one is the first weekend of March, and it’s a Dr. Seuss theme/reading… Totally welcome to join if we go!

      T&G have a great time together. And he’s the one that colored today, not my peanut.

    How great for Michael’s to offer that and even though she was the ONLY one there, they still did the crafts! Love it. (oh….just caught a pic of the shamrock you did….lovely.)

      Thank you!

      I thought it was awesome that they still did the craft. And they gave us the schedule for the next ones! Just about every Saturday morning, there’s something for Teagan to do. Yay!
