H’s school project assignment this month was to make a musical instrument. (Don’t get me started on the monthly project thing.) I was expecting something along the lines of last year’s great ancestor doll debacle, but it actually turned out to be simple and fun.
Since H started school, I always try to save baby food jars, shoe boxes and paper towel rolls. These seem to be the most requested items for craft projects. I had to help with cutting the holes in the shoe boxes, because the cardboard was so thick. The kids were able to assemble the rest. They used ribbon and markers to make stripes. They have been playing with them ever since we made them on Sunday.
