We are two weeks into Year 1 of Tapestry, and both Friday afternoons have become project days. It has been rather fun. Last week we painted the wooden paddle dolls that Mark cut out of wood for us. I asked him to drill holes in their heads, and today we tied lengths of jute into the holes for the dolls' hair. Since I couldn't find the beads I thought we had, we just left them off.
This afternoon we also made reed boats out of dried grasses. Both kids enjoyed this project immensely. It helped that we made our boats outside and the weather was not-too-hot, something I'm thankful about in Oklahoma this time of year.
Jacob used a Sharpie marker to color his doll's hair black.
This (above) is the way boys take pictures with dolls--"This is lame, Mom."

If you look closely, you'll see that Emily painted her doll like a cat. :)
