This month I teamed up with Netflix to make a craft in honor of Dream Work’s original series The Adventures of Puss in Boots, which debuts on January 16th. This project is so fun. It’s a “kitty” bank made from a recycled water bottle that resembles Puss in Boots himself. I can’t wait to snuggle up on the couch with my son and watch the show!
