We've had a few days recently where Ani has been, shall we say, experimenting with scissors. Again. ('Cause don't you go through this at 2? And then maybe at 3? Well, we're doin' it again at 4-and-three-quarters...) Clothing. Hair. Today - the crocuses in our yard. Sigh. I suggested that maybe we spend some time cutting magazines together, so we got out the pile of wildlife ones I got on Freecycle last year and went to work.
Inspired by this post on Se7en ("camouflage camping"), and nudged further by this creativity in our nephew, Ani and I decided to make a camouflage scavenger hunt for Eliza (who was in her room, drawing and listening to Harry Potter, book 2). It was great! Ani loved being the one in on the secret, and it wasn't as easy as I thought it might be for Eliza, which was nice. In the end we had to give her some "hot" and "cold" clues.
