Entertaining the Creative Kid
I'm always looking for activities to keep Amelie entertained. When I was little we had Fuzzy Felt. Do you remember them too? I'm sure they're still available, but we've gone for a homemade version. All you need is a few pieces of brightly coloured felt and some sharp scissors (the scissors are for the grown up!).
We chose a background colour that would work for a variety of scenes - this mid blue is good, it can be sky or sea. Then while she sat impatiently, I cut hills, trees, a sun, clouds...Before long special requests were being shouted: red apples, stalks, leaves, windows, bird with a beak and an eye...
So far this has been a big hit and she's remade different versions of the picture several times.
Thanks for visiting,
