Weeks back I mentioned that I had a babysitter who created an impressive paper contraption with my children when I was gone for a few hours one morning.
Even though it measures over a foot-and-a-half in diameter, it's been hanging from our kitchen light fixture long enough that I barely notice it.
There's some invisible-visibility paradox happening here, much like when my children claim that they can't get into the van because their shoes have disappeared, even though those shoes are sitting three feet away from them on the floor.
In-plain-sight invisibility is always the hardest nut to crack.
If we keep it the firework up long enough, we'll just start calling it a snowflake. It's quite versatile.
My babysitter has returned to college now, but as a final gift she shared the instructions with me in case I wanted to duplicate the feat. "Just add some more arms," she noted before disappearing into the sunset of college life.
I scanned the directions over for you, ladies, and I proclaim it to be a do-able craft. You, too, can have a paper star crafted from your children's artwork dangling from your kitchen light fixture.
And when you bump your head on in three months from now, think fondly of me.
