For Halloween this year my oldest decided he wants to dress-up as Harry Potter.
We talked about the details of his costume and he for sure needed a wand :)
I've been trying to step back more and let his creative juices flow, and I must say I'm pretty proud of his thought process and how this turned out!
To start out with my son said it needed to have a point on the end.
I handed him a pocket knife and had him go to the back porch to make it look how he'd wanted.
(He has used a pocket knife before to whittle some sticks, but I still stood there and watched to make sure he was being safe).
After it was 'perfect' as he exclaimed, he said he just wanted two big globs of glue on it.
I asked if he wanted any other design or texture and he mentioned that the yarn I had grabbed would be perfect.
