It’s one of THOSE days. You know where somebody, and I’m not naming names but they’re about 3 feet high, zapped my brain.
So, we read this awesome book about the Navajo and how the stars were placed in the sky. Hopefully by the end of this post I’ll remember the name. Well, it seemed perfect for a craft I’d been thinking about.
Supplies: black or blue construction paper (I cut it into fourths and let them have fun with that much, fits better in the lapbook); those foil stars (you know, the GOLD star for being good)
1. And only step. Let your kids have a blast putting on star stickers however they like.
Princess’ summary of story: The coyote threw the stars away, while the woman was trying to put them in the sky.
Finally found the book:
I love this book, it’s probably my favorite of the different ones from this region.

A Mommy’s Adventures. Sigh, I always have this problem with the button, it keeps making the next few sentences after it a link, I don’t know the details of why, now you know my secret reason for having it at the bottom.
And, I’ve decided to make a category called dinner time crafts. To my mind these are crafts you can set your kids doing and not have to supervise.
