To be honest, with work and school during the week and a usually busy weekend agenda, I feel like we aren't home that much to play with toys anyway. One outing Hank looks forward to -- especially if he and dad are on their own for an evening -- if go to Chuck E. Cheese. We have a handful of these little souvenir cards (too hard to throw away something with his sweet little face on it), and I thought Hank would enjoy carrying them in a wallet. I used this tutorial. I was a little frustrated, as I feel like I followed the instructions pretty well, but the thing didn't go together as intended -- something with the lining. It was my fault (blame my novice sewing skills), but really thought it would turn out better. Regardless, it will serve its purpose.
The souvenir cards stay, but the junky toys brought home from Chuck E. Cheese don't have a chance. Adios, poopa trooper.
