Recently I was realizing how much milk we go through, when a smart light bulb told me how much all these milk lids sort of looked like giant colorful coins—non choking hazard size coins not to mention the perfect fit for a certain little toy cash register.
This was the birth of “milk money.” I created boy and girl silhouettes from an old profile shot of Hendrix and me which I glued to the milk lid. I also cut out colored numbers to present a number recognition and counting opportunity. Lastly, I covered the top of the lid with clear packaging tape to prevent the image from peeling up. I sort of like the way they came out. What do you think?
I think you are amazingly clever and a way better mom than I am!!ReplyDelete
Natalia-you never cease to amaze me. Where do you come up with this stuff? Imagination is WAY more important than knowledge!!!ReplyDelete
Farrah- ha! yeah because only good moms make pretend money out of garbage! ;)ReplyDelete
Charissa- "imagination is more important than knowledge"?...what are you trying to say? ;)
Natalia- It's an Albert Einstein quote, "Imagination is more important than knowledge." It's just so true...you can be smart, but not really get anywhere, solve any problems, have fun, etc., if you don't have an imagination. Sorry if it came across as rude! I didn't mean for it to sound that way! I really, really admire your creative side!! That's all I was really trying to say in the first place.ReplyDelete
