I know it is a day late, but I don’t have a new pie recipe to share for pi day. I didn’t want to let the day go by without saying anything, so I decided to do a day after post showing some fun pies I’ve seen. My fingers are crossed right now with the hope that I can make a dairy and/or nut pie for the family and then maybe share it soon. The Chiplet is having more tests done and I really really hope to have some good news. Either way, I will make something circular for us.
We actually made this craft during the Fudgelet’s “P” week at preschool. Totally unintentional. If it had been planned, I would have had him take it in to share. Basically we were browsing Pinterest for ideas as we sometimes do, and we came across this craft. He wanted to make it, but the Chiplet woke up not long after so that night after bedtime I took the time to draw the parts and have everything ready. We ended up not getting around to it for over a week because we did other things and the Chiplet was doing really awful sleep. We followed the basic guidelines from this website but worked in some of our own ideas too.
So, what has changed since last summer? Well, the Fudgelet has been in preschool which is a major change for us. I wasn’t sure how it would go but it has been great for him. Even though he knows most of what they are teaching, he isn’t bored and finds it fun. As of the time I am posting this, I will have had a conference with his teachers to hear about his progress. But, I am writing this ahead of that soooo I am hoping he has been good.
So, I thought I was only going to update every 6 months or so now but then I remembered doing every 2 months for a bit with the Fudgelet so I might do that at least for now. I thought of it because I was thinking about all of the advances he has made since I last posted about him…and yet I didn’t get to share it. But now I can! It was fun reading back over the Fudgelet’s post too.
To start out the year with my first post, it actually has no food in it. But, we need to warm our way up to that, I guess. I had some different activities I did with the Fudgelet during the Fall, and I want to make sure I share them for me to remember and maybe for anyone else interested.
I had already posted about the Chiplet turning 1 year old but I didn’t get a chance to share his pictures from his birthday or his party. So, as you recover from Christmas parties, let’s talk birthday parties!
You might think that this is an odd time to share this. But, I think the techniques in this could be used for any season. We actually made this after Halloween because spiders can be cool anytime. But, if you didn’t want to do a spiderweb, I think you could make this with a Christmas tree outlined and then use pom poms as ornaments…in fact, I might be doing that. But anyway, let’s get into what we already made.
