Ask me a year ago and crafts would have been the last thing on my mind! This morning at breakfast I was reading a new book I just got: The Creative Family – How to Encourage Imagination and Nurture Family Connections by Amanda Blake Soule, and David was reading the latest Mothering magazine which had a “Crafty Mama” article. I also read yesterday on another homeschooling blog that you should do crafts everyday with your kids and I was like, woah, could I really do that? We often joke about me being a crafty mama, because I have been the opposite, a techy type of mama. 🙂

But today as we ate our yogurt and I was surfing crafty kid’s websites, I came across this oh so very cute yogurt cat and dog! Because I stocked our schoolroom with all kinds of crafts, including felt, googly eyes and pom-poms, we were able to make use of all these materials for the first time!

And Daddy, the most wonderful, encouraging, and supportive husband/daddy helped! It was a joint family effort, with mama cutting, daddy pasting, and Satori placing and supervising. 🙂

Hmmm… how’s our very first family craft looking?

So within 20 minutes, we had our own set. 🙂 As a household with 3 cats and 1 dog, we think they’re super cute!

You may notice we finally charged up our point & shoot camera, and it is now Satori’s very own real camera! This is the one I’ll be using as well to shoot video for our blog. If the little 4 1/2 year old girl on TV can shoot pictures, edit them, and send them to family, darn it, Satori can too!
