Must show you......

Must show you what my grandson came up with....
Having announced that he wanted to play with the dolls house frontage-ish, that he uses when he wants to recreate the story, We're Going on a Bear Hunt.

"make me some itty bitty birds Nannie.....lots of itty bitty birds please?"
( his thumbs and fore fingers were held up closely together to stress how small .................. itty bitty really is...)

So I drew 1" ish sized bird shapes.............had to put eyes and a beak shape on each one for him too lol

What will you do with them Jack?

"I need lots of flying birds ................. lots Nannie and I want the tape"
Off he goes and comes back with the roll of selotape from the kitchen drawer ............. whilst I cut birds ..

And this is what he did with them, asking only that I cut itty bits of tape for him! 
I would never have thought of putting them there!
He's priceless lol



Next he uses his felt tip and marks the wall................


"whats that Nannie?" - I dont know Jack, what is it?
"bird poo!" ............... he chuckles away and I did too !


He'd had me cut little yellow bits from some self adhesive paper and he stuck them one by one in front of the front door. 

"whats that Nannie?" - I don't know Jack, what are they?
"It's bread for the birds to eat" .................of course it is, says I !!!

We're Going on a Bear Hunt ............... now has flying birds in the story!

  5. Oh my goodness - another story from my own children's library. (I'm going on a bear hunt, I' going to find a bit one! Oh oh - tall grass! I can't go round it.. I'll have to go through it! Swishy swashy swishy swashy...)

    Seems to be a bit topical just now! But I was focusing on the Ahlbergs. http://livingtowork-workingtolive.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/horizons-diversion.html

    And when my son was small he only spoke with half the word (it sometimes took a bit of interpretation) so it was always 'Birpoo' in our family!

    Aren't children's books great!
