accordions and butterflies

morning knitting

morning knitting
I’ve added knitting to our “school day” morning routine in hopes that Larkspur might someday finish the hat that she started knitting about a year ago.  Her attention span only allows for a few stitches at a time.  I read a couple of books while Larkspur warms up her fingers and then it is on to our letter themed day.  Today I read Amos & Boris, so excellent (makes me cry–but not the girls–don’t really want to make them cry) and a nice way to incorporate “A” and “B.”

accordian books in tiny boxes
A is for accordion books in tiny handmade boxes (issue one of Alphabet Glue.)

These are so much fun.  My kids spent a morning making lots of them.  (Instructions here.)

I’ve got lots of “B” themed ideas for this week….

I don't know.
