Just a note, I used knots to attach and secure all the strings (it is just faster this way). You can add a little spot of glue on each knot. I then glue a piece of felt on the back. This is totally optional, it is just an idea.

The O Family

The kids had fun at the park today! C is all about climbing rocks now and V still loves to climb trees. And guess what? My husband got a motorbike! That means I won’t have to take him to work and pick him up in the evening (we only have one car). It took me more than 1 hour a day to bring him/pick him up. So I now have 1 more hour to crochet! It will make our life easier, especially in winter when I won’t have to bring the kids out in the cold at 8 pm to go to pick him up. We have been doing that for 6 years and a change will sure be appreciated for all of us.

  1. Instead of the felt, use the magnetized material so this can be a magnet for the refrigerator. Kids will love it!

    1. Thank you. That’s a great idea! I actually added a magnet to the felt to fix it to the fridge. But I will check out this magntized material!
