There's been plenty happening around here - its pretty much kids clothes week every week, just not much blogging as usual. However I've been inspired by some fabric and have finally delivered. I bought some awesome bug patterned fabric a while ago, chosen by my 3yo and have been thinking about making them into the ultimate bug collector shorts for him.
I shortened the pattern (they are bermudas and much too long for my 3yo). Then I added enough tags, pockets and holders for all the things a budding bug collector might need.
- magnifying glass for seeing all those bug details up nice and close
- mini LED torch for seeing into those dark corners
- thermometer and compass for, well, just cause they are cool things to have.
- a spot for a notebook and pencil for writing up notes and drawing pictures of all the interesting things we find.
We gave them a little spin around the backyard this afternoon and they proved to work pretty well.
One happy 3yo with a new outdoor activity!
