Again, this blog isn't political, and I certainly don't endorse any particular candidate. Having said that, Lore's adoration for Obama is unyielding. I found this site and printed (cut and folded) out an Obama for Lore to play with. It was waiting for him when he got home from school. He came in, normal.
"Hey Mom, can I have a snack?"
I reply, "Sure, oh, hey I have something for you today, it's on the printer."
Lore grabs a snack wanders over to the printer, DROPS his cookie onto the printer top (it's ok, it's sort of a catchall at times anyway.) And picks up Senator Obama, cradles him in his hands, and asks, "is this for me?"
I say "Yep, I thought you might like him" He runs over to me, gives me a huge waist hug and, I think, with a tear in his eye exclaims "You are the most best, favoritest mama EVER!"
Yep, let's hear it.... AWWWWWW! His huge 7 year old heart was so full!
He then proceeded to go show his brothers who were upset because I didn't have a new tagboard folded toy for them. So we had to go to Custom Paper Toys and The Toy Maker sites and make something from there.
Paper toys never last terribly long in our house. And I honestly feel quite guilty sometimes printing them out, wasting paper, etc... but the joy it brings them is quite amazing. Plus some of their favorites do get saved in a place of honor on the shelves in their rooms.
Here's a bunch of other paper folding toys sites that snuffykin has already compiled link. Via
