Do your kids love to make paper hats? Before I found out how to origami a nice paper hat, I just swirled a piece of paper up into a cone and stapled it. But try the origami paper hat and use half of a newspaper to get it big enough to fit their heads (and yours). Plus you can turn it into a nice boat too.
October also saw Damus down with Hand, Foot and Mouth disease.
Kids love playing dress up too. Below you see Karina and her lipstick attempt. She also got her ears pierced sometime this year and loves putting different ones on. She definately has some girly instincts in her. Damus on the other hand likes to play "macho" guy. With a toy gun tucked at the back, he is ready to shoot down dinosaurs, monsters and bad guys. Violent? Yeah, a little but it seems to be a boy thing.
