We are continuing our animals of the rainforest theme today with this adorable sloth. As I mentioned in yesterday’s black caiman crocodile craft, our lives have been pretty busy lately. In addition to Maddie turning one, my mom visiting, and the holidays, we are also moving across the country this summer. We are so excited to be closer to my parents and family… this summer can’t come fast enough! I have a ton of crafts prepared between now and then, so I’m hoping the transition will be smooth and won’t affect LCL too much. (I’ll try!)
