help. the mother of a preschooler needs help with a class assignment. if you too are the mother of a preschooler or know of someone who is, please contact me through the comments section or by email.
here is big h's "assignment." they are studying "all about me." i have brought a picture of big h as well as one of our whole family. they have gotten to talk about everyone in their family and specific things about each member.
side note: what i wouldn't give to have been a fly on the wall when big h discussed something specific about me.
their latest project reads:
today in your child's bag, you will find a felt square. our class will be using these to make an "all about me" class quilt. please decorate the felt square with your child and return it to school by 09.28.07. you can use any materials you would like when decorating. the following are some suggestions that might get you started:
- magazine pictures of favorite toys, foods, etc.
- hand prints
- child's drawing
- photo of the family
have fun decorating. we can't wait to see your creations!
ok, people. let's talk. i am not creative. not creative. i need a map to navigate my way through hobby lobby and michaels. i haven't *played* with glue since i had a crush on...well, he was a boy in fifth grade, but he might be reading this. so he will remain anonymous. i used to make friendship bracelets in the summers. but this is the extent of my craftiness. however, i have a little OCD about stuff like this. meaning, i want big h to bring something that he is proud of, i am proud of, and of course, the teachers and rest of the entire student body are proud of. i'm not going to take a class this weekend or anything. but am soliciting your help so big h won't be the laughing stock of CRCDS. i need serious help.
this is a felt square. how on earth do you attach a picture to a felt square? stickers? my kid LOVES buz and woody, so naturally i thought i would purchase some buz and woody stickers for said quilt square. again...how to attach? hand prints? what kind of paint do i put on his hands or feet that is washable but won't wash off the quilt? and child's drawing? big h is WAY into writing his name by himself. so i would love to somehow include that as well.
i PROMISE this is not a ploy to reach out to you lurkers. i am ok that you lurk. i too am a lurker. but people. this mama is in need of some assistance. and fast.
so come one. come all. to the aid of this frazzled mama.
and a little FYI: this is due on a day i will not be there. i am going on vacation by myself. that's WITHOUT CHILDREN and leaving next wednesday (09.26). so buz will be bringing this masterpiece. if you don't want to help me, c'mon...at least help buz.
