Last night I was putting together the activity for the kid book club I do on Fridays. The book we're reading this week is Jan Brett's The Mitten. The craft is one I found on her website where you color the animals from the story and put them in a mitten you make. Of course, I had to make it a little more complicated. Instead of pasting the two mitten halves together, I'm having the kids lace them.

Sounds easy, right? Until I realized I had no white yarn. A quick run to Michaels solved that.

I was busy writing though so I waited until last night to get everything together. I printed and cut the mittens. And then realized I had a very big problem. I couldn't find my hole puncher. Argh! At 9 pm, poor hubby drove to Walmart and bought one for me. I whole punched the first mitten, but it was hard on my hands so he did the other nine. A real romance hero, I'm telling you!

The cats loved all the strings of yarn I'd cut. They thought it was Christmas!

I'll post pics of the kitty this weekend. I'll have more time then, plus my card reader walked away! I can't believe how much Yoda has grown already.

Hope you have a great Friday!
