Hat Making

Tomorrow is Friday, our Handwork day. My two younger children have informed me that neither of them have a winter hat (which I find hard to believe -- don't they get handed down? or do they just get lost?) so we are taking Natalie to her Eastern Woodland Indian Village field trip at Jefferson Patterson Park at 9:30 am and then getting our hands wet and soapy with Harrisville's Felted Hat Kit. I know the kids are going to love this & I am feeling more confident about wet felting after the success of our whale project. The only problem for me may be blowing up the ball...

Story to go with this: A Boy Had a Mother Who Bought Him a Hat by Karla Kuskin, one of my favorite authors.
