Cloud Watching & Alligator Clips

Filed under: Arts and Crafts — by dsuzuki @ 7:42 pm

Yesterday after running me in circles taking “galloping” lessons and learning to hop like a frog Kaitlyn decided she wanted to lay on the ground and look at the clouds.  That night we decided to re-create the shapes she saw during cloud watching using cotton balls.

She said she saw a dinosaur’s face:

and it had wings:

and she’s thinking about what else she saw:

Once she was done there were a few extra cotton balls and she found the clips that we had used to hang up some laundry.  She decided they looked like alligators with fluffy heads:

It was amazing how long these kept her occupied.  They rode around on her stuffed turtle, flied away from the evil teddy bear and hid out in the tent cave.  Never underestimate a child’s imagination and every day household products.
