How fun are these Science Pillows from Uncommon Goods?! I especially love the volcano and respiratory system pillows. The artist based them on old science text book drawings, and I just think that is so much fun! These would be great to make as a science class project or as a supplemental project with your kids at home - or if you home school, this could be a fun way to combine a home ec assignment with a science lesson or three. You could do beautiful floral pillows to give as gifts or other fun images lifted straight out of the pages of your science text books! I especially like how these are a sewing craft that can be given to a boy, because I'm always at a loss for things to make for little boys. Imagine making something where you could sew a small pocket on the backside which holds extra felt pieces for play on the pillow - food to follow through a digestive tract, or different types of precipitation from a cloud? Or give one of these with a fun age-appropriate reader book on a science topic! The possibilities are almost endless.
I'm all about supporting artists and their work, but at a staggering $204.00 each, I'd rather try my hand at making one myself, thanks!
