Yesterday morning, Simon and I had some fun with cardboard. I got out all the crayons, and cut open a cereal box for us to color on.
At one point, Simon pointed at the cardboard and said “Nake! Sssssss!” (which is his word and sound effect for snake) so I obliged him by making a cardboard snake too. He loved the snake, and quite quickly a game evolved in which Mumma, Daddy, and Simon puppet would each get chased away in turn by the snake, and Simon would crack up with giggles.
I also got out the “Tickle Guy”, which is a cardboard puppet I made from a Newman’s Own pizza box a few months ago. He has two holes for you to stick your fingers through to make walking legs. We call him the “Tickle Guy”, because we always end up chasing Simon with him and making him tickle Simon’s neck. This game, too, is very funny to my toddler.
