CAT in the HAT photo

This is pretty self explanatory!  It was lots of fun-
First we read the cat in the hat and then we spread out a large white sheet & collected things that resembled the cats first trick.
it's fun to have fun, you just have to know how.
I can hold up a cup & the milk and the cake and the fish on a rake, I can hold the toy ship and a little toy man and look i can fan with the fan as i hop on the ball"  Dr. Seuss (the cat in the Hat).

OK so its a little different, but you make do with what you have. I wasn't going to give him a huge dirty garden rake so instead his little broom and I wasn't going to make him a cake so a cup cake with a paper candle will do, and I drew the fish in the bowl. I didn't trust giving him milk so a empty sippy cup worked well enough & well the hat is simply red paper strips glued on an A4 paper that dimples glued together himself- It was so funny.
I did have a toy ship. a ball& a toy (lego) man on hand.
After I showed him the pictures he declared "That was FUN, lets do it again!"
