today we made a lion puppet out of a paper plate, construction paper, googely eyes, pipe cleaners, and a stick from outside. easy!
our creations are cute and fun to make ... but within an hour or so, Sam disassembles, destroys, or hurts it in some way. it makes me frustrated! but I guess it is his to destroy, right? I try hard not to do too much of the work myself, I really want him to create and use that imagination of his. it can be difficult not to take over. maybe we should make 2 of everything, 1 for him and 1 for me!
