These snow pics are from Monday and courtesy of Harry who romped around with Maia in the freezing cold while I stayed warm inside looking at gardening catalogs and thinking about spring. Do all children like snow this much?
And yesterday Maia and I made paper plate masks before dinner. She drew the face above and I cut out the eyes and mouth for her then stapled on a piece of elastic to hold it on her head. I almost used string but am glad I chose the elastic because it makes it easy for her to put on and take off herself.
Maia cut the eyes and nose out of mine and pretty much everything else as well. This kid loves to cut. Her table and the surrounding floor are usually littered with little pieces of paper.
I'd like to try this again with collage materials — perhaps feathers, cotton balls, glitter, fabric scraps, and sequins.
