There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly...

Okay, let's have a little flashback.  Do you remember Gunny?  I made him a while back.  He eats up all the toys my kids don't pick up.


Well, my sister took the idea of Gunny and made something I thought was so cute.  It's a gift for our boys' preschool teacher.  Remember the song "There was an old lady who swallowed a fly..."?  Well, she made an old lady and all the animals that go with the song. 


That way when they sing that song at preschool they can actually act it out.


Just open up her mouth and throw the animal in.


Check out her cute animals!


Aren't they so fun?


I think the old lady is SO funny.  I love the bun in her hair and her pearl earrings.


I think the kids in preschool are going to love it.


Feel free to show my sister some comment love.

Thanks for dropping by.

  23. As a former preschool teacher I am going to say she will LOVE it!!!! That is the cutest thing and so much better than a candle or coffee mug. FYI if anyone thinks to make something like this again putting it on an apron works really well too! Easy to see talent runs in your family!!!
