We've been having fun drawing these days. It's something that works with my girls - a somewhat quiet afternoon activity. I draw...they draw. We can stay busy sketching and coloring for a good 20 minutes before someone inevitably falls off their chair, steals a marker their sister was using (or "thinking of using"), colors on the couch/their sister(s)/the rug, etc.
The picture above is one of a few drawings I sketched for our "Mystery Child" at our middle daughter's preschool (every family is assigned one). My husband and I made an accordion-style album out of binder board and covered it with some cute fabric book cloth. It was actually the first time I made our own book cloth, with just Heat-and Bond Lite, fabric, and tissue paper. In the past, I've fused fabric to Japanese book cloth, but found that can be expensive. This seemed to work well.
The inside "pages"/boards are filled with a few matted drawings/pictures and a written section that describes this little girl and many "interesting" facts about her (this has been an ongoing project over the past few months).
My husband also wrote a nice poem about our Mystery Child that he'll read to all the parents tonight. I hope the parents are happy with what we've done. I'm not sure what to expect!
