My 85 year old grandmother has had to move into a nursing home. I am helping my mom, my aunt, and my grandma sort through Grandma’s apartment and decide what to keep, what to toss, and what to sell. I have come home with a few treasures, one of which I wanted to share just because it’ll bring a smile. It’s completely out of season, but that’s OK:
The idea came from a preschool project. We made several of these for Christmas in 2003.
I think we had a lot of fun making them, but that was a long time ago, and I might be remembering the project with rose colored glasses. I think I got the wooden trays at Hobby Lobby. I was just looking at the big bottle of blue paint in a drawer, wondering why I had purchased it — now I remember! I think I probably let them do nearly all of the painting. I think all I painted was the bottom of their feet so that they could do the print.
The book is going well, but still lots and lots to do to get it finished.
I’d better get back to it….
