Woof Woof!

Isn't it amazing what you can do with peanuts? From peanut butter chocolate chip cake to puppies! The boys and I had fun making these Peanut Pups last night. They are pretty easy. You just poke holes in the shells to stick in the pipe cleaners. Even the head is attached with a pipe cleaner. The only thing we glued was the nose, eyes and ears. Of course, after we were done, the boys wanted to keep going. They made other critters and every character you can think of. I can only imagine what the mess on the table looks like downstairs. However, these pups were a lot of fun to make, especially because they were so easy. Woof woof!

    We used to make little peanut people when I was little. I'd forgotten about that.

    Nathan made a really cool spider too, so I think the possibilities are endless.
