Save The Animals

As some of you may have noticed, I've been spending a little less time on Twitter (and blogging to some extent) over the last month. I'm still keeping a hand in but I'm making a conscious effort to dedicate more time to Mini Cheddar. She's growing up so fast right now, at that lovely stage, and I really don't want to miss a thing. We've been having lots of trips out and lots of play time at home - it's been so lovely.

Yesterday we got the mat out on the lounge carpet and broke open the modelling clay.

Mini Cheddar turns the ice cream cone
into a Moldovian Eurovision hat!
It's non-toxic and scented...not sure i could smell anything but modelling clay to be honest but the bright colours were a hit with Mini Cheddar.

So, what did she want mummy to make? An ice cream obviously (she's obsessed) but I felt I needed to experiment more.  An ice cream was hardly putting my modelling skills to the test now was it?

Cue me attempting lots of animals...

Badly.

Freaky animal farm
I think I can safely say that Mister Maker can hold onto his day job with ease. I made a duck that was bigger than an elephant (with pink eyes) and my freaky green-eyed rabbit looked like something from Donnie Darko! I had fun though.

I found myself getting anxious whenever Mini Cheddar grabbed the clay wildlife and decided to rip a beak or a tail off. My poor animals! Even if they were rubbish they were my creations. I felt like a kid again.

Never smile at a crocodile!
Then in a stroke of modelling clay genius I created this on the right. I saw Mini Cheddars face light up and run towards it, I practically rugby tackled her to the ground in order to save my precious crocodile.

There was me thinking it was Duplo creations I didn't like her destroying. Turns out it's pretty much anything - even freaky animals.

It's like some freaky police line-up
Who would have thought I'd be like that?  For someone who isn't competitive I really surprise myself sometimes.

I was gutted when I had to squash them up and put the clay away. Seems even though I look old on the outside I'm still a big kid at heart.  We are off to Peppa Pig World on Thursday and I'm more excited than anyone.

Here's to more play time!

Good for you! I really spend too much time on social media. I try to pull back but my guy is 11 and really should entertain himself more! Still, it is enjoyable to do stuff with him and go places :-)

I LOVE your modelling skills, you did a great job! Know what you mean about squishing them up! My guy loves to keep everything. Even bottles filled with sea water and stones....which I throw out when he's forgotten about themm ;-)

Don't get me wrong, it's not a slight at people spending too much time on social media - I'm the worlds worst sometimes. I've just been trying not to let Twitter and blogging take over my life. It's so hard sometimes though isn't it?

I'm glad you're impressed with my modelling...ha! My animals are rubbish though, apart from the croc - I loved him *sniff* xx

We took plasticine with us to keep Charles entertained on holiday.
My husband decided to make animals and then teach Charles to go "reeaadddddyyyyyy SPLAT!!" and they would squish the animals. :-(
Therefore, I would never be able to make creations such as yours because Charles would splat them in an instant.

The crocodile is pretty amazing!

I am really not creative at all and would love to have skills like this - great that you got photos of them before they were squished - I must do that with some of my baking before it is demolished xx
