We like to find things in your story books
that we can bring to life by recreating ourselves at home.
The Ralph and the Motorcycle series
are of some of your all time favorite chapter books.
When we read about the maze that Ralph had to go through
in Ralph S. Mouse,
we talked about making our own for your miniature gerbils.
Of course, that was months ago,
and we just finally got around to doing it this week.
It was so much fun to create, using a shallow box and Trios.
When it was all finished you put both of your girls inside the box...
and let them run!
While we were making the maze
I thought all of the fun would be in the building...
but after about an hour of watching them I realized
it was just as fun to see them navigate and play in the finished product!
And of course, you and I weren't the only
ones who so thoroughly enjoyed watching the scurry.
I'm sure we'll get plenty of use out of this in the coming weeks, as well.
