Thanks: Day 11

In honor of Veteran's Day, yesterday we colored a mini-book of "In Flanders Fields." And we made a red poppy wreath.

First you color the poppies. I used Do a Dot markers to make it faster. Using two hands at the same time works even better!
Then Mommy cuts the center out of a paper plate. Then Mommy cuts out the poppies. While you color the paper plate green. And then you glue the poppies onto the paper plate.
You glue a bow on for a final touch.
Add your face to the center. And now the wreath is complete!
Today I'm thankful for:
  • Popsicles
  • Orange popsicles
  • Strawberry popsicles
  • When cat spends time on Mommy's lap
  • When Pappa reads stories
