Money is a little short this season, so I have had to be a little creative in entertaining the girls. We decided to make sock monkeys the other day and they turned out kinda cute! I don't think they will last very long, but they were cheap and kept the girls busy for a while. I found a tutorial here: http://www.urbanthreads.com/pages?id=161 and here: http://www.web-goddess.org/writing/tutorial/Image1.html. They were faster than I thought, although there was a little too much hand sewing for me. We found the socks at the dollar store and the rest of the stuff I had at home, so they were each a dollar. And I had the girls help me stuff them-- although they woosed out rather quickly.
PS Kamber's monkeys eyes are not red, like they look in the picture. They are pink to match the socks!
