DS would love that but at 22 months is still at the scribble all over it stage sad

DS (nearly 5) did the maze and counted the stars (he counted 9, then 10, then 9 grin). He wants to draw the mouse too!

Kveta Mon 22-Sep-14 17:35:18

DD (27 months) did the maze and colouring in, with similar results for both - she doesn't quite 'get' colouring in yet!

Galena Tue 23-Sep-14 09:20:34

DD (5) coloured the fruitbowl and drew a slice of lemon too, in case the mouse wanted it!

Here's my DS's entry. He loves mazes so he loved doing this. He drew a little truck too for the mouse for his fruit.

Here's my three years olds fruit bowl. We have his book The Fly and she loves it.

My 4 1/2 year old wanted to draw a picture of the mouse. He followed the steps in the instructions and then decided to draw a moon and a banana too!
