From Bones to the Barnyard

"Evolution" of a Llama:
First few steps (painting sticks, hot glue)...
llamabones

Last few steps (wrapping with fiber fill, adding pipe-cleaner ears and burlap/cloth saddles, ropes and bridles)...

I thought the kid's llamas came out better than mine did. They did a good job helping with this (although Morgan and I both got burned by the hot glue gun a little). I'm just no good with craft supplies without supervision! Maybe we should just stick to Elmer's.

Sorry, I just didn't feel like writing today. It's my day off with family again... too many things on my mind to sit down and write. Our last week of school for 2005-6 starts tomorrow! Yipee!!!
More on this craft here: Finally Finished the Llamas (sortof)!!!

Yer sure welcome, crystal. Hope your kiddos enjoy it. Cute photo.

Toni - Thanks, sweetie. You are pretty talented yourself, dear. I enjoy your caption posts quite a bit! The refrigerator project is also quite fun. However, I haven't been able to get anyone to do it or my homeschool lunch meme. Oh, well.
