yellow bits

Last night we joined Erin's Yellow Week, knowing it would be a challenge for us to find any of the bright hue in our world.  I love the color, And, it makes me look green.  I imagined I'd have to take some liberties, with a week's worth of posts titled, "Yellowish," "Yellowed," "Yellowing," & "Golden." But with a bit of hunting, we found some good bits of straight up yellow.

And then I was offered some sushi wrapped in yellow nori.

And a "Caterpillar Roll," also meant to be sushi, but obviously, made up of fortune cookies.

This is a great "no help" kid's craft ~ have them trace drinking glasses for the circles, then tape on twisty ties in the middle.  They fold them over the ties & hold it closed while pinching the ties backwards & creasing them.  The controlling crafter in me has to be totally hands-off for some crafts, or else I      start trying to make them hide the tape. Which is so unfair for little guys, who think, "the tape is beautiful."  And...it is.  They're right.

They had their Lola (Grandma in Pilipino) make up these funny fortunes.  Can you read them? 

Help! I am being held prisoner in a Chinese Fortune Cookie
Learn Chinese
Do not follow the instructionson this fortune cookie
You are not illiterate
Don't kiss an elephant on the lips today

And my favorite:

LIFE IS NOT A STRUGGLE, IT'S A WIGGLE.

Thank you.
