Georgie is very creative. She gives little attention to toys but loves her craft supplies; scissors, tape (her fav!), markers, pencils, crayons, and paper. These are the things that thrill my girl! She can spend hours working on her projects. Our kitchen table is perpetually covered with the remnants of her work.
This was one of G's more interesting creations. I was getting ready to toss this piece of cardboard in the trash when Georgie stopped me explaining that she "needed it". I tried to tell her it was trash but she said "please!" Ok, ok. A couple hours later she reappeared "look what I made mommy!" She told me a little story about it too:
"Once upon a time there was a little, little butterfly that was really, really small. She saw a path that led to a shady spot. She fluttered up and fluttered down and then saw a tiny spot, a shady spot. She fit it in just right so she curled up and said 'good night'. The end."Cute, huh? I was most impressed with the way she used the tape to wrap the tree around the corner to make it stand up. The red piece in the corner is the butterfly, the red dots represent the butterfly's path leading to the "shady spot".
One afternoon we gave wax resist a try. We used a white crayon and tried a few different methods.
