Mermaids` Makings

An Evening Game

Lil  Mermaid made this apple tree picture a month ago. As there was some space left  I thought we could add some people picking apples. So she drew some people, I cut them out…. but instead of sticking them onto the picture we started to play with them.

After picking some apples and putting them into their little basket, the girls decided to play football. (Lil Mermaid had played football at school). One of the girls got tired and sat down.


Lil Mermaid  started to make a campfire and I thought that it was time to change the scene. I took down another picture which I had made a week ago.

It was a MONSTER! The girls were scared and ran away.. but the Monster called them back telling them that he was a good Monster.

So the girls went back and had lot of fun with the monster, bouncing from hump to hump….

Unfortunately they fell into the river and got wet.

Luckily Annabel had finished the camp fire so the girls could dry themselves before going home for tea.

Then we took out the farm. Well it was quite late but things got interesting and then you cant`t go to bed, can you?

The sheep had a party.

And the horses came to see what all the noise was.

And they were invited to the party as well.  The party food was hay… cut out from tissue paper. And I put real water into the bottle lids to have more fun.

Now I don’t know what to do with the pictures – should I fill the gaps between the trees or leave them as they are so that we can make up some more games in the future…

    How adorable! What a great play scene, I especially love the way you used real fabric to make the dresses on the girl pictures.

      Thank you.
      I love playing these simple games with Annabel. We play with absolutey everything- with sticks and stones outside, train tickets and coffee spoons in the train on long train journies, pencils, bottle lids, feathers.. everything comes alive in our hands. As long as we have got two things we can start a play (conversation). Annabel usually starts: Hello, what`s your name :) With daddy she loves to say: “Knock, knock” jokes. Like: knock, knock.. who`s there?

      I used to make lots of fabric dollies when I worked in a kindergarten. And I loved cutting them out to decorate notice boards. (With children`s permission of course).

    milline pikk ja sisukas mäng! Kuidas pabernukud pildil püsivad?
    Minu lemmikud on lambad.

      Tead, nad ei püsigi pildil. Me lihtsalt toetasime. Eks see piltide teema ole rohkem nagu tagapõhjaks mõeldud. Selle vee eluka selga saime panna, sest elukas oli selja pealt liimist lahti.

      Mulle endale meeldivad need hobused. Ma kujutan juba ette, kui lahedad põhjapüdrad nendest tuleks.

      Annabelile väga meeldivad sellised nukumängud. Ta mängiks iga asjaga.. võtab kaks puupulka või pliiatsit ja lähebki mäng lahti. Need kõnele ka head.
