Snowscape: Birdhouse

I was running around outside with my camera, looking for good photo ops.  I saw this, and I kinda messed with it to fix it to the way I saw the picture first, in my mind... If that makes any sense.

Towel Creations: Hanging Monkey

Ok, this is an interesting one... if anyone doesn't understand... let me know and I'll post a video of it instead... I just want to try it this way first... with pictures :) Please try it and let me know if I was clear enough or not... Thanks... Isn't he so cute?!?!

Have a large towel to begin with

Roll in the sides to the center of the towel

It should look like this

Now flip it over

And fold in half so the "rolls" face out ward

Pull out the corners of the towels out of the rolls... Just a little tug will do.

Now here comes the hard stuff: grab the corners of the towels in both hands and pull the 2 left rolls and the 2 right rolls apart

And keep going

Keep going

Until it looks like this. You put it on it's "stomach"

This will be your Monkey's Body

Flip the body over unto it's back

Pin the "arms" and "legs" together so he doesn't fall apart.

This is a medium towel for the monkey's face. ( A hand towel) fold it in half "width-wise"

Fold in half "width-wise" again. (have the first crease on top like I have it here, it'll make things easier for you)
And then fold it in half length wise... Like the picture shows, if you can read it.

This is your monkey's head and face

Sandwich his/her head in between the arms as shown

Give him/her some sunglasses

and I put a pnytail holder in his/her mouth for a tongue
So this is how you make a monkey out of towels.. Like I said above, if this isn't clear I'll post a video.. Thanks for reading!

"blah blah mummble blah"... "and How do you feel about that?"

So. I haven't posted in awhile and just thought I'd ask a few questions and see how everyone feels about certain sitations and how they would react. You don't have to answer all of them, just whatever you feel like. Here it goes:

1) What type of toothpaste do you use?

2) Do you have a favorite color, if so what is it?

3) You have a choice to take ONE book to a desert island. That is your ONLY form of entertainment. What book would you bring?

4) What would you do if someone were gossiping about you? How would you put a stop to it?

5) How would you react if one of your siblings just walked in the door and all of a sudden said "Today I learned in Social studies about how the civil war started... by the way, you look pretty."

Would love to hear your answers on these! ^_^
