Ode To Franklin


Michaela really likes Franklin. I am also starting to like this show. It is becoming one of my favorites. I find myself humming the theme song. I even get a little excited when I find it on TV.

Well in honor of Franklin I thought we make turtles. I got this idea from Lindsey. Her class did this last week and I thought the other two kids would like it.

You just need a paper plate, green construction paper for the legs and head. Then you can use all sorts of colors for the shell. I just traced the feet and head out of the green paper, then taped it on the plate. I let the other two glue the paper on the shell. Michaela and Adela had so much fun.
Here is Michaela's turtle. She called it Harriet.
Here is Adela's turtle. I cut the paper for her.


Here is Lindsey's turtle that she did in school.

My first TV show that become a favorite of mine when I started having kids was the Wiggles. I had a crush on Captain Feathersword. Do you have a childrens show that you don't mind watching?

Love the turtle and I like the one you helped with better:)

You asked me awhile ago about the outdoor mall, yep we were at Partridge Creek. I think the scrapbooking store you crop at is nearby, see I AM out in that neck of the woods often. We should meet up for a playdate some nice day, maybe at a park or something with the girls.

Oh I meant to add I secretly love watching the Backyardigans. I enjoy Olivia, the Wonder Pets, and Max & Ruby too. Guess I just love all things toddler. ER is not so much into Franklin and I don't know why...or the Wiggles for that matter.
