A little project for the girls

Nick Jr. has some really fun activities.  The girls have been seeing this one advertised on commercials, so we tried it.

It was fun...a little more hands on for parents, but the girls loved their new stuffies.


  1. Disney has one where you make a stuffie of the penguin from toy story and Alex is begging me to do it, but I wasn't sure if it would be too hard. How hard was this? Did your littlest one get to participate at all? Alex is 3 1/2 and I don't want to do a project that is just him sitting there whining "are you done yet" for an hour...I wouldn't mind doing prep work the night before though and just having him do what little he could during his school day or whatever (say, already have it cut out) Any advice?

  2. I highly recommend pre-cutting out all the pieces before hand. Even Lydia at 5 had a hard time with the felt. THat was the biggest issue for us. I cut out the main pieces on Friday night and we glued them together and let them dry overnight. Then we finished them Saturday morning. Caty (3) enjoyed the assembly. She wanted to do the gluing too, but I used Liquid Stitch and I was afraid to let her get a hold of the tube:) So I put the glue on the items and then she had to match where it went on each "stuffie". The other biggest issue was patience of letting the glue dry! But it was fun.

  3. Adorable! Almost makes me miss the pre-school days.
