TriCk Or TReat BaG

I was Inspired by these over at How Does She?

I wanted to make Jada a trick or treat bag but was too lazy to make the bag part. So I went through my stash of fabric grocery bags and found this one. It was the only one that didn't have logos plastered ALL over it. So with the one logo I thought hey that would be easy to cover.
First I cut out a piece of black felt big enough to cover the logo on the bag.

Then I sewed it on and added felt eyes and a nose. Then I embellished it with my embroidery floss to create the cats whiskers.

Oh, that's so cute Andrea! I think we have one of those bags around here somewhere, will have to have a look. You've reminded me that our girls don't have their own trick-or-treat bags either. (And, wow, you are SO organised to be thinking of Hallowe'en already!!)

Great idea! I was just thinking the other day that I have SO many of these bags and I should downsize... perfect idea!

Hi there,

I LOVE your blog. I find it very inspiring!

I just wanted to get an idea of how you plan your day with your little girl. I have a 3 year old son full time at home with me, and planning my day (not to mention creating fun simulating activities) is really challenging!
Do you follow a routine, or do a theme a week or something? I'm not a preschool teacher, and have no ECE but I wish I did!!!! I'd love to learn some tricks of the trade!!!

Keep up the good work!!!

Earthygirl I run a daycare as well so we follow a pretty simple daily routine. I change it up every so often to keep the children interested as well as themes. However, The themes are based on the children's interests (follow the child's lead. a basic day:
arrival and free play with other children (7 to 9) educational activities are set up such as activity trays. 9:00 snack
9:30 circle time or teach me toddler program as well as some Kindermusik
10:30 art activity
11:00 free play more educational activities are available
12:00 lunch
12:30 cleanup and bed
12:30 to 2:30 nap
2:30 story time
3:00 snack
3:30 to 5:15 outside time. water play, painting etc
hope this helps. I find that you have to flexable and the times listed are always changing based on the children's moods and interests or wheater.
you have a closed prifile so I couldn't post on your blog:( hope you see this reply
