Leoni the Catkin bug

My 4yo went to a birthday party on Sunday afternoon. He returned clutching three things: a blow-up aeroplane, a large catkin and a Kinder Schoko-bon.

The blow-up aeroplane was enormous fun but moving on …

In my most innocent typing voice, I’ll just say that no-one can deliver a big, fat catkin into my hands without me wanting to do something with it. So while L demolished the Schoko-bon (did I say Schoko-bon?? .. I’m sure I didn’t as I never do advertising on my blogs unless I’m in love), so,  anyway, while my son devoured the afore-mentioned Ferrero wonder-sweet called a Schoko-bon, I disappeared into the cupboard and came back out with some googly eyes, a roll of wire, a pair of scissors and some glue.

Said Catkin is now called Leoni and is my 4yo’s new best friend.

  1. Oh my! What a cutie (both the boy and the catkin/ leoni). Aren’t the quick, simple, spur of the moment crafts simply the most wonderful :-))))))

  2. Definitely! I’m not allowed to move her … or the box. He had a 15minute conversation with her this morning over breakfast – he told her stuff he wouldn’t tell me .. even tho’ I was doing her voice!! :-)

  3. Wow! The best way to get stuff out of kids.. eh?!??!!?

  4. Well, a Shocko-Bon has got to be a huge improvement over the horrifying Haribo default of UK children’s party bags. And what a nice idea the catkin was!

    I am loving Leoni! I think I’m going to have to take Princi around the gardens at Speke Hall so we can pick up some natural craft material :D
