So I get this really terrific email newsletter with free printable paper toys. Yesterday they sent me one I couldn’t resist:
I had a feeling Emma would love it, so we set to work printing and then cutting each bird out…
then we strung them onto some embroidery floss since I couldn’t find yarn.
(Please excuse the chocolate on her face and the crazy hair…)
I was pleasantly surprised at her delight over making the bird “fly” back and forth on the string. She was shrieking with laughter and having so much fun – it was great! :) Made all that painstaking cutting the birds out worth it.
I want to make more but our printer just ran out of color ink… bummer! I like toys like this because you can throw them away after you’re done with them. ;-) Another thing we do a lot is print coloring pages. I love printables!
