A couple months ago on a field trip with school we visited an Alpaca farm. Ricky and Nancy gave us a tour of the farm and were able to get close to the alpacas to pet them. The kids had a ball and I think most of the adults did as well.
Nancy had generously prepared a felting project for all the kids to do. The kids rolled, added more roving, more colors, sprayed and laughed. Each was sent home with a new skill and their own design of bookmarks, little creatures and place mats.

We had so much fun doing it there, we picked it up at home making bookmarks, felted soap and other fun works.

I love the feeling of closing my book with a special piece of felted art that Oscar has put his heart into.
