Last week we had Animal Week from our Summer Fun Weeks plan.
We got lots of animal books from the library and we also got a dvd of Little Peep, which my son thinks is hilarious. I love to hear him giggle. We got some tiny 3D animals to put together (btw-they don't stay together very well but he didn't care). I also saved one of his favorite shirts from going into the garbage. Every year I buy him some white t shirts for the Summer but he almost always stains them within the first few times of wearing them and then they become sleeping shirts for him. This crocodile shirt had a few chocolate milk stains on it and he was sad that he wasn't allowed to wear it out anymore. So I bought a navy blue t shirt from the dollar store, I ironed double sided fusible web onto the back of the crocodile, and then I cut it out. Then I ironed the croc onto the front of the blue shirt and sewed around it. Jacob loved it so much that he put it on immediately. I might add words to it later but for now he's just happy to have his croc shirt back. I think this would be a good option for shirts that kids outgrow too-just cut out the part that they love and sew it onto a bigger shirt.
