To begin with, I like to provide pillows to the children in my home daycare. Soft spots to lay your head when you aren’t really ready to be awake yet. Getting here at 6:30 a.m. is not always on the agenda of a child under age 5. Getting up from nap can have the same outcome. They often let everyone know. Pillows offer something to clutch, hug, squeeze, sit on or even punch. There are days you don’t know what you’ll get in the realm of childhood emotions. I present an option to keep those pillows neat as a button and the children Sweet on this Sunday Sampler.
Now lately, some pillows have been coming undone from their protective cases. This is with the help of little hands. This new discovery of “I can pull out the pillow” is a great dexterity skill but, as the whole country knows, flu season has been relentless and not keeping pillows sanitary is not an option. So to keep pillows safeguarded, I am putting my snap tool to use. Why?
- Because I don’t
have time to makefeel like making 15 more pillow cases with envelope closures.
- Snaps are more secure because…..
- They would soon figure out the envelope opens up.
- Never, ever underestimate the ingenuity of a 2 year old.
- Or even a 1 year old.
- Trust me on this!
- I’ve even had the pleasure of seeing a child stick feet into 2 separate pillows to walk around pretending they had Big feet this winter. Who’dathunk?! (but it was cute).
Now that I’ve made my case, here’s a little slide show of my tool and the finished result.
Have a wonderful rest of your Sunday!!
