Look up, look way up, as the Friendly Giant would say.
Look way up, to the top of the creation...By George, it's an Elephant!
Can you see the head and trunk?
Not too bad for a 4 year old and a pair of scissors!!! She cut this freehand. I wondered what she was creating as she was working so dilligently. She knew all along what she was doing and had great fun creating it.
Sadly, Mommy and Daddy didn't look closely enough and this lovely treasure was found by Miss C and I when we went to put some trash in the recycle bin!!! Oh my!!! After a few tears and a bit of glue, this mighty blue elephant was soon right as rain.
Even little Mr. P came running and threw his arms around Miss C. when he realized that she was sad. He listened to her sobbing story of how her elephant was in the bin and suddenly he gasped and said...Oh no! Did they thwow your winosaurous away too?". A quick recheck of the bin revealed no rinosaurous...Sadly enough, it appears he had joined Great Grandpa in heaven!
This delightful project may fool you upon first glance. While it may appear to be random brush strokes of colour it turns out to contain a hidden treasure. Little Mr. P came running to tell me he had a present and proudly announced "I love you a little bit now and this fishy for you, Gwamma."
I stammered you love me...and he nodded and whispered "I love you sometimes Gwamma" and threw in a shy little smile!
