"....so it sat 90 years on the floor."
Mary has been singing this song - that is on a CD in the car - headed to and from school.
I love the old, classic songs like this one.
My mama says her daddy sang it to her when she was a little girl.
Sweet memories - I'm sure.
Mary is learning songs and nursery rhymes like "Hunky Dunky" - as she calls it.
All during drive time.
She didn't know what a grandfather clock looked like
We looked at photos via Google
and then constructed one from throw away items.
The brown part/cabinet is an old cartridge toner box from the copy machine. We got brown paper and worked very diligently to wrap the box
just like a present.
Mom taught me how to do that early on in life, and I usually was part of her wrapping team late on Dec. 24th.
Mary is not ready to crease corners and line up edges, but she sure helped
and did 95% of the taping (parallel to edges - of course).
The clock part is a red creamer lid.
We cut out a circle and hands.
Mary wrote the numbers and cinched it all with a dab of glitter glue in the middle.
We still have to create the dangling weights on chains, but that'll be another day.
