One morning when Bella fell asleep (just like usual the only time we have for anything :-)) Tristan and I pulled out our art supplies and got to work on something that will make daddy smile!
We took a brown paper bag (the one you can put sandwiches into), glue, scissors, markers and a regular paper. I drew the shapes for ears, eyes, and nose and Tristan colored them with a marker. I cut them out and he glued them to the bag. This is a great way to teach your kids how to use glue... Tristan made a bear and I made a cat.
After the bear and the cat dried we played a bit of a puppet show with them. This has been about a week ago and now they are old news... So we decided to surprise daddy tomorrow and pack his lunch in the bear puppet Tristan made! We know this will make him smile - we miss him all day!!!
