This was really easy and different and the end product was so thoughtful and cute. Truth be told, I had a few upper grade kids in my room who were in trouble, so I made them help the little kids. Not so much fun, right? Wrong! By the end, the big kids were begggggggging to make one too. And, honestly, I had a great time making my example model too. So, it's great for all ages. Thanks for the great activity!!!
Hooray! So glad to hear that it worked out for you :)
