At the Kitchen Table

A's File Box

Our kitchen table has been a busy place this week with Valentines's Day around the corner and the release of Alphabet Glue: Volume Eleven!  There is so much to love in this issue, but the very first thing to jump out at us was the foldable file cabinets project.  After much debate over who they wanted to make these for (which dolls would it be?), Amabel and Ellen decided that we should make our file boxes and folders even smaller than Annie's pattern.  So, we printed out the templets at 25% and made mini-mini file boxes for Sally and Molly's doll school.

As usual, I am in awe of the projects that Annie comes up with using the simplest of materials—in this case, paper, scissors, and glue.  This little project inspired a whole afternoon of play at our house.  Amabel and Ellen soon filled their colorful folders with miniature math tests, tiny lists, coloring pages, micro mazes, reading lessons, itty-bitty letters, handwriting practice sheets, and all sorts of other bits of paper.  Little, little love.
