Stick horses like these were a favorite at my son’s kindergarten when we lived in Germany, and since the kids are so into horses these days, I thought they’d like some for Christmas.
There’s a great tutorial for making your own here, but I’m finally doing a slightly better job of estimating just how much crafty-juice I’ve got in me for one Christmas season. So the horses you see here are courtesy of Mimi’s Whimsey, an etsy shop. Aren’t they cute?
One of the great things about these is that you can order them sans sticks, then put them together yourself, which kind of made me feel crafty even though I can’t take much credit.
As expected, they’ve been useful for horse racing and imaginary trips of all kinds.
Hope you have a great weekend! We got a tiny bit of snow here last night, but it wasn’t cold enough to stick around and keep the kids home from school. They took the news on the chin. And now, another writing morning for me!
