Bird Mobile

Tess has this great idea of making a mobile using her Usborne Animal stencil birds. I was so impressed because she conceived this craft and designed the mobile and orchestrated the color schemes all by herself. Somedays the kids just make things easy for Mom...and well somedays they don't. I love the Usborne stencils, they are super sturdy and thick compared to other stencils we have purchased. The kids spend hours with these and they are always great for packing in a bag and pulling out when you need quick calm down activities. Usborne has a whole range of them.  We used the same technique of sandwiching the drawings between contact paper to make holiday ornaments with their Christmas stencils and had a whole tree of hand drawn sweetness.
