Oh my goodness, this made me laugh. We read "My Map Book" by Sarah Fanelli and, inspired by this post at Playful Learning, I set out to suggest that the girls make their own maps. It being the week of the valentines, I felt pretty certain they would choose to make heart maps, which Eliza did and is still working on, but without a moment of hesitation, Anika chose to make a map - of her sweet tooth. I helped by drawing a tooth (come on, it kind of looks like a tooth, doesn't it?) and outlining her words in black pen, but the rest is hers, all hers. It really tickles me.
I had to include a picture of this present E made for a good friend at coop. She came up with the design and did all the sewing herself. I particularly enjoy the fringe...
by E - fairies, flowers, and a beaver,
which I thought was a dinosaur.
