What Is The Story Behind This?

A very carefully picked out present for Chunakah, wrapped in pink paper. Your child spent the afternoon captivated by the inexpensive wrapping paper, and basically ignored the more expensive gift.

My 7 year old son says it's an attempt to build an Origami Skateboard.

Wrong on both counts.

On Monday, we bought mylar balloons at the dollar store. On the ride home, my daughter's balloon popped and she started crying hysterically. My wife was finally able to calm her down by suggesting that they use the balloon to cut out shapes and make an art project when we returned home.

What you see is pieces of the popped mylar balloon glued to a pink piece of construction paper. My daughter was very pleased with it, so I scanned it, and she gave me the original to hang up at work.

Very creative!

(My 7 year old son will be crushed, so I won't tell him what it actually is ;-)

Only when he is at work with me (he was here earlier, but he's not here anymore).

Chabakuk Elisha, count yourself extremely fortunate. Delayed reading readiness runs in my family--neither my son nor I learned to read until we were nine years old. So don't take your son's skills for granted.
