I am not a crafty person.
That aspect of teaching 3rd grade never appealed to me.
It's just not my style.
My ADD kicks in and I get bored way before the craft is completed.
after grabbing a Martha Stewart Living magazine off the freebie table at the library and flipping through it in 5 minutes only to realize I should have left the magazine there for someone who would actually enjoy it,
a great idea popped into my head:
Cut out the pictures Henry would like and let him glue the pictures down with the gluesticks I bought on clearance at Kroger.
No. Not really. I know.
I thought gluing the pictures onto a football player would incite excitement.
I was right.
Hmmm. Which picture to choose first?
Mama, glue the hot dog right there.
Admiring the finished product.
He surprised me by insisting that I handle the glue stick but he really enjoyed choosing the picture and telling me exactly where it need to be placed on the paper.
