Spring Break is over and Magoo has gone back to school, so I have to get my picture book mojo back in swing. But there were too many other little things that needed my attention today and I couldn't muster up the work ethic, so I decided to just roll with whatever I felt motivated to do.
The first thing I did was make felt food!
You see, I have an author appearance in two weeks. I'll be in Cambridge, MA at PROJECT:READ at the Cambridge Health Alliance. When chatting with the coordinator, she told me that I could bring props for my table.
Normally I have no props. But this time I do! I remembered Lulu and Ben, the softie characters I made from my book characters. And they alone are pretty cute - but how much cuter will they be with a basket of felt picnic foods?!?! Soooooo cute! (Not picture: felt donut.)
So that was fun.
Then, because this Thursday is Nature Fest at Magoo's school and I have volunteered to do collage birds with the kids, I had to prepare an art-to-go kit.
I gathered up a bunch of scrap mat board and patterned paper, pencils, Sharpies, and glue stix, and I made a lovely little panel of directions for kids who don't want to listen to me. (It's cool - some kids just want to GO GO GO!) (On the other side is a 4-step owl.)
It was a cute & crafty Monday on my end.
I hope you all had some spots of fun in your day too!
Thanks for stopping in!
