For halloween this year our two year old decided he wanted to be an excavator. Absolutely obsessed with the idea. He sleeps and breathes skidders and excavators. With a husband with both arms in casts I had my work cut out for me! We were able to get the overall shapes designed and I cut the pieces from foam board, using black yarn and pre-drilling holes to piece it all together. And of course the bucket really goes up and down; apparently a very important requirement… the 1st version didn’t 😀 I’m inclined to think this is one of the only projects that requires needle & thread and a power tool!
