C (age 4), still had some crafty energy left, after all our thankful turkeys were complete. Actually, I don't know if she so much wanted to craft, or if she just wasn't ready to relinquish the glue stick.
At any rate, I cut, and she glued, and together we turned three more toilet paper tubes into a seasonal change of clothing, for our egghead planters, on the kitchen windowsill.
Thankfully, two of the scarecrow mouths were drawn with pencil, so I could easily erase their stitchy grins, and give them normal smiles. For the one in pen...
My first attempt, at disguising the scarecrow, cross-stitches, caused the Man of the House, to say, "How doest thou?" in his best, Italian-Pilgrim-English, every time he walked by. So, I ended up turning the egg around, and drawing a new face, altogether.
Now, our pilgrim gentleman is two-faced. Which, depending on your view of the early American settlers, and their policies toward the native peoples, might be fitting. We weren't going for symbolism, though, just for something cute to put on the windowsill.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
