Playdough hedgehogs

It’s been so lovely and sunny recently that we’ve been outside in every spare moment desperately trying to sort the garden so that we can finally get some turf down.  The earth’s nearly ready now but the blog is drying up.  Oops.  I shall try to rectify it with a few little titbits.

Here are some hedgehogs we made a few weeks ago when it was still raining.  I gave the wee man a hedgehog shaped lump of playdough and a bowl of little bits of drinking straw and he was soon concentrating very hard on trying to stick the straws in.  We stuck on some stickers for eyes and then he looked at the finished object and said ‘hedgehog!’ for the first time followed by a triumphant ‘yay!’  It was so fun that after a 10 minute juice break we went back and did it all over again.  He does seem to prefers crafts when he’s able to make a recognisable something that he can talk about afterwards.
