way too much time some time on Pinterest....and it has won me "the best mommy ever" award a few times this week. We made a soccer game with a shoe box lid, a piece of construction paper, 2 pipe cleaners, a cotton ball, and 2 straws (as seen here).
here and here, I knew he'd be excited. He cut out the planets (ok, he cut out one and I did the rest)....
Then he used a pin and poked holes in this paper to make constellations. When it got dark we shined a flash light behind them and saw the "stars" on the wall.
I'm so glad he loves to learn and do cheesy stuff with me. I hope Dom wants to join us one day!
