Then I scoured the Internet for ways to create that Mercury Glass and found this awesome tutorial by Maryann over at Domestically Speaking!
Can you remember the warmth and happiness of Spring?! No?!
All you need is Tulle, scissors, elastic, cardboard (the length you want your Tutu), Ribbons (if you want it to be extra fancy!) and a sewing machine.
Then cut ONE end of the tulle.
Repeat the last three steps over and over and over until all of the elastic is covered:
This story begins when my trusty old Silhouette cut these tags out:
Cliff goes to Pre School two days a week, 3 hours per day. He missed over 2 months of school because of his surgery and I have noticed that he is a little behind all of the other children in his class (writing, colors, letters, numbers, etc). Now that I think about it, Cliff being “behind” academically makes perfect sense because for three years all we have focused on are his gross motor skills! Cliff also has seven hours a week of therapies so finding time to work with him on his colors, numbers, letters, etc is kind o fa challenge for me. Cliff’s OT recommended we start with 2 – 30 minute “homeschool” sessions on the days Cliff is not in Pre School. Cliff is very bright and I don’t want to make it sound like he is not brilliant (because he is!), but I want to make sure he has the basics down so that he can have a strong foundation to build his education on. I thought it would be fun to share with you what we do each week at home!
Red snacks – Apple, Tomato, Strawberries, Red Grapes, Red Bell Pepper.
I am learning the best way to work with Cliff as we go. So this will take a little trial and error. Hopefully I will soon find how he learns best so that I can teach him in a way that he understands. Please let me know if you homeschool your little ones and if so, how do you teach them?!
