Unplugged - Pockets!

We're playing along with Unplug Your Kids and the Unplugged project of the week - POCKETS! Plus, we're still on "F" week.

So along with stuffing Pappa's [clean] hankie into my pocket and wiping everything with it all day, here's what we did...

When I woke up from my nap, I found footprints taped outside the bedroom on the floor. They matched my own footprints perfectly! I double-checked lots of times.

I followed them around the house, with a brief detour into the bouncy castle...

Here's what I found at the end of the trail: My Winnie the Pooh wall pocket hanger! In each pocket was stuff for feeling: glass rocks and dirty rocks from the yard in one pocket, feathers and ribbons and velvet and tulle in another pocket, and bubble wrap and a styrofoam ball in a third pocket.

In the second to last pocket was a wet wipe to clean my hands.

And in the last pocket - JELLY BEANS! Yummy!

I found you through Unplug Your Kids. We're trying to think of ideas for the pocket project. I love those footprints. I love love love them! We actually have a special spot on the wall in one hallway where we paint footprints from each child every year as they grow. Today is our Moyra's 3rd birthday, so we'll be foot painting in the morning!

Still not sure what to do with pockets, but I'm sure I'll think of something. I do absolutely love the idea of having lots of different textures to feel. You are such a creative mommy. I can't wait to explore the rest of your blog.

How clever of you to incorporate "pocket" and "f" in the same theme! I am completely impressed and very glad that you joined in again. Very cute and creative project, thanks!

Adorable! And perfect for a toddler. I think I will copy this idea too if you don't mind. :)
