So we did. I set the table up for crafts with newspaper and the glue gun. He found the Sweet Gum balls, a stick for the body and small sticks for arms. Can he have a shirt? he asked. Then he picked the felt. He described the shirt he wanted. This was to be the General of the Fairies, so Woody thought khaki sleeveless would work. I first drew butterfly wings, but no, he wanted dragonfly wings. And then he named his fairy Jack and off he flew with Aila's water princess to play pretend on the top bunk.
"I like our toys we made ourselves," he said to me.
