It’s a gloomy Monday around these parts, so it looks like one of the last jaunts to the pool will have to wait until another day. Today, however, we are all about paper. Lots and lots of paper!
E, of course, started all this hoopla (she is, after all, my crafty one). We broke out a book on origami that we had checked out of the library and a paper-folding kit that she received for her birthday last year.
She was carefully folding up pinwheels….
and little paper boxes that are perfect to store Sharpie pens…
and then C took over a corner of the dining room table to bring out these books:
Have you seen these? The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and Darth Paper Strikes Back are awesome! If your child likes the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, he’s going to love these books.

Paper Darth and Yoda puppets are great, but add in a few lightsabers and you’ve got yourself a morning of adventures.

That’s right. She folded him a very stylish orange hat — you know, for those days when you need a little fashion pick-me-up from the normal Dark Side attire. So. Very. E.
