Thumbs Up (or down!)

I haven't used this idea yet and don't know if I will, but it's funny story so I thought I'd share it.  The other day, I asked my son what would make primary more fun.  "More high-5's," he said.  OK, I can give high-5's.  But logistically, that's a struggle with so many kids that I can't reach!  **Inspiration**  Make a stuffed hand on a long arm!  So I headed to the sewing machine.  Keep in mind that while I do own a sewing machine, I don't really know how to sew.  I can do a mean straight line, but that's about it.  So I traced my arm, and began to sew.  When it was done (and I wish I had taken pictures to show you) it was hideous.  HIDEOUS!!  My two year old actually started to cry when I waved it at her.  One of the fingers was freakishly thin, and the other ones were really out of proportion.  I'm not sure how that happened?!  Anyhoo, a few hand stitches later and the thumbs up/down hand was (re)born.  It's a little less creepy, and I hope if I ever use it we can have a good time with it.  I may just use it as a Halloween decoration, though.  Hey - Halloween Sunday is coming up!  This could work...

Pin It Now!


  1. Just got called and i love and appreciate all your ideas. I am not a sewer either, and thought instead of making an hand, you could stuff a glove with something and attach it to a stick. A bit easier.... :)
