In the beginning of the Fall, Giraffe and I started to take daily walks around the neighborhood sans a stroller so he could really get into the walk. We pass a big huge oak tree that drops millions of acorns, or " A-COONS" as Giraffe says. He would always stop and pick up as many as he could and put them in his pockets.
If you have a child in school, daycare or you yourself went to school, you are familiar with Show-and- Tell. Well, one day it was the letter 'A' so Giraffe decided he wanted to bring his acorns. I had to dream up a way for them to be transported to school without the risk of small children choking:
I placed the acorns in a small plastic bag I recycled.
Then simply did a zig-zag stitch around them making a little pocket that couldn't be opened by little fingers. Simple as that! I think I may use this tactic for other small items as well, buttons, rocks etc.
What is your child's favorite thing to bring for show and tell ?
Ok, off to get better... I wish you wellness!
