After a Sunday school lesson about Jesus and the faith of the centurion, Emily used the take-home finger puppets to create a map of the story. Then she hauled out a picture Bible and made a replica of the tabernacle that God commanded Moses to build complete with an alter, a washing basin, priests and sheep & cows for sacrificing.
Another day after school she decided she wanted to take pictures of the Wild West. First she made her own camera. Then she set up some of her stuffed animals as lawmen in a jail scene and pretended to snap away. I love the little details.
I am becoming much less of a saver, too. Taking lots of pictures and posting them on the blog for the permanent record allows me to emotionally let go of her creations. And that makes everyone happier (although it would be even better if all the little paper snippets vacuumed up themselves off the carpet)!
