Since we've been having wonderful weather, one morning I took the kids for a walk in the woods to collect things that we could make into tools, toys, or even a picnic for Uncle Wiggily and his friends. (The six-year-old worked with great concentration, but said, as we set things up outside, "They're not real. They won't come." The four-year-old replied, "I think they'll like it so much, they'll tell other animal friends to come, too!")
Here are our creations for our animal friends:
"for chopping stuff"
The picnic table with stone benches
Setting the table and preparing the "feast"
"A cradle, with soft moss for the baby to lay on and a birch bark blanket"
Sail boat with berries for a snack
