"About Me" Bag

Kate had an assignment to bring in a paper bag with 5-8 items representing her. She came up with the idea to have this sock puppet coming out of the bag. She had me cut the hole in the bottom of the bag and attach the sock (duct tape), and then she made the eyes.

I can't think of a better way to represent Kate. She's always finding ways to turn things into funny little creatures. (I don't think she came up a name for this one ahead of time, but her class started calling it Bob.)

We also included her swim goggles, a pencil, a drawing of a dragon, a family picture, a picture of Wrecking Ball (Skylander figure), and Lego Kate.

I remember doing the same thing for a Relief Society activity at church.  It's a fun way to find out about people!

I think this is where she got the idea:

It is has been a very long time, Helena. But, you popped into my head this morning, and I was wondering what was happening in your world.

It looks like you have a busy life, and the children have grown so much.

I can't remember the last time I was on Two Peas, but I do miss it. I retired in January, and it seems I am busier than ever. Where did I find the time to work? hahaha
