Daddy's Creative Series - Army Daze

We have previously read "A New Coat for Anna" from the Five In A Row book list and have done a few activities that were inspired by the coat-making process as outlined in the book (which I will share in a separate blog). However, I wanted to do something related to war and army as the story was set in post World War II.

Hence I tapped into my husband's creative juices and he came up with this:

Improvised "rugged and shaggy" look helmet
as he decided to snip, snip away!
Yes, a camouflaged print helmet! After a short discussion on war and weapons, they started colouring, cutting and pasting.

One thing I found challenging was to explain "war" to Princess and the Rock. How do answer questions like:
  • Why was there war?
  • Why did they use weapons?
I'll like to hear your suggestions in the comments!
