Cardboard project: a wagon

Next week we start our 2010-11 school year.  Of course, Miss M is only in preschool, so it's a very easy school year.  I expect we'll do about an hour a day of "schoolwork" and the rest of the time will be spent learning through play as kids ought to do.

Today Miss M wanted to do a craft, so I gave her some pieces of cardboard to decorate and we assemled them into a wagon.  (Yes, the wheels are from Laughing Cow cheese's dangerous to have in the house as I tend to eat it all day long till it's gone!)

It's perfect to carry her sidewalk chalk!

Little Guy likes to ride his big sister's tricycle.

It's follow-the-leader on wheels!

In sewing news, I finally started sewing my Fall SWAP.  Yesterday I made two pairs of knit pants and today I nearly finished a bodysuit (like a long-sleeved t-shirt that snaps between the'll be great for wearing under pinafores and skirts!)  Once the top is finished, I'll get some pictures and post them here.


  1. Little Guy has grown so much over the past few months! Looks like y'all were having fun outside. Can't wait to see what this year's SWAP looks like.

  2. Look how big he is now! Looks like lots of fun.

  3. Very cute wagon. You are so resourceful!
