Evening television has been silent in our house lately. We're wrapped up in the magical world of Oz. Last night, we decided to create a hands on learning activity for our literature unit. We love the neurotic Jack Pumpkinhead character and his "parent" Tip. With a lot of help from Richard, whom Elliot calls a "genius" for his ability to take a few found materials and transform them into just the thing we were all imagining, we now have a storybook character proudly standing in our back yard!
