Bug Glasses!

Bug Glasses

We borrowed a Bug Crafts book from the library, and Wally quickly picked out two projects to make first. Clothespin Dragonflies (no picture, sorry!) and these Bug Glasses.

He was a bit distraught when I cut up his paint kit to make the glasses, but we routinely give our egg cartons back to the farm we get the eggs from, and the paint kit was the only egg carton we had in the house. He recovered quickly, though.

I will say, I’m so happy that Wally finally is starting to enjoy actual crafting activities. I’ve always looked forward to doing crafts with my kids, but until recently, he could not be bothered. Suddenly, though, he loves creating things. Yay!

  1. I have extra cartons-18 count holders-you can have for craft things. I just don’t want to throw them away, so I hang on to them for just this sort of thing. We use ’em for crafty stuff, too.

  2. I dont know about the glasses but his t-shirt is awesome 😀
