I can never get enough of the Wee Folk Art gnomey peg people! (Check out the comments on that link, there are some other how-tos that are really fun.) Starboy's favorite has a flower button and glitter dots all over.
Another couple of gnomes landed as a bonus in a couple of Autumn sensory bin kits I offered to some mommies, here's hoping the kids will be thrilled with a new playmate!
This particular one was a bit overwhelming for Starboy last year—I'd recommend about half of the
junk wonderful sensory input in it so there is room to play. The mecca of sensory bin ingenuity is at Counting Coconuts, an amazing Montessori homeschool blog.
