We read "B is for Bethlehem" by Isabel Wilner
and illustrated by Elisa Kleven.
I really like this book mostly for the illustrations.
The artist used every color to depict the
Victoria and I glued a paper chain.
I think that every child needs the experience of gluing a paper chain.
I remember doing some when I was little and helping each of my children do one.
It is funny how you either like making a paper chain or you don't.
You either get a good glue stick that actually sticks the paper
together or you don't and have to resort to a stapler.
Fortunately we had two really good sticky glue sticks.
It is kind of a childhood right of passage.
I think Sammy even enjoyed getting in on the festivities.
All you need is PVC, glue, a striker, cheap hair spray and of course
I had no idea this thing could be so cool!
The boys built it as a projectile project for Scouts. Our fingers were really cold trying to twist the striker at a speed that would ignite the hair spray. I always knew that hair spray was flammable but this was totally awesome. And the FWOOP sound of the potatoe that was shot out of the cannon was just as exciting. I can't wait for the boys to show my Dad this.
