I Don't Know

Kullen has a history project that is due tomorrow. We have been talking about it all week and he has been working on it. I had him draw what he wanted to make and when he showed me the drawing it looked like a swing set. After some clarification, I learned that it was a gallows - and it is appropriate as they have been studying the Salem Witch Trials. A short while later he brought me an old sock and my sewing kit, and asked for instructions, because he wanted to sew a doll to hang from his gallows. I told him I wasn't so sure that was appropriate. He said, "Mom, they showed us a movie where the witches were hanging and blood was coming out." So.....as you can see from the picture, we have a gallows where a "witch" is hanging. It is supposed to be his project. He and his dad built the wood structure and I taught my son some basic sewing stitches - although somewhere along the way his doll lost her arms. I hope this goes over well.


  1. He's a creative kid! Maybe not what you or I would have done, but very cool!

  2. If nothing else he learned to sew! :o)

    We are studying the Salem Witch Trials next. My 13 year old son will be reading about it next week. Thanks for the heads up.

    I don't think I'll be requiring any projects on this one!


Awaiting your words......
