Rainer received this book for Christmas and on Sunday he asked to do a project from it. I admit to feeling a bit grumpy at first, because this kind of project requires a lot of adult help (or at least it does for Rainer), but on the other hand, how can I really argue with the desire to make something? So we followed the (easy) instructions and I think these turned out pretty cute -- and I was no longer grumpy. Rainer made two and Dieter made two. And now they are decorating our nature table.
Afterwards, the boys got out a big tub of art supplies that Dieter received for his birthday and they made lots of things on their own, so a nice balance was struck.
