Something you must know about me---I detest crafts that take skill beyond the grade level for which they are intended. This is one of those crafts. I had to do all the taping and sizing for the kids with the wax paper for the crown. They got to crush up the paper to make the egg shaped item that sat inside the wax paper, but that was it.
Second, I hate crafts that have no value beyond the moment you make them. These stupid hats were off their heads and trash worthy in less than 10 minutes. Look at King Narmer's crown in this picture. This is what the white crown of Egypt is supposed to look like:
Granted, Red wanted the pink crown of Egypt and Tom Thumb wanted the yellow crown of Egypt, but this is what we ended up with (for the 2 seconds that they lasted):
Oy---hope the upcoming crafts are better than this!
The Cobbler continues his crazy work schedule through Wednesday. He worked yesterday and today, and he's been going at least 10 hours and up to 15 hours per day. Who knows what I'll be doing to keep these monkeys entertained this week! ;-)
