Winter is almost gone and V. really liked the snow.
What he also loved very much was the cartoon film "the Snowman" - discovered via my father somewhere in November: a very sweet story with wonderful drawings. by Raymond Briggs and equally lovely music by Howard Blake.
V. watched it for months on end every evening a few (hundred!) times..:-)
His passion for snowmen became so intense that we had to make snowmen from all materials available..
We made snowmen from bread, all kind of other foods and also from soft clay. These all did not survive much and were not aloud to go to bed with us..:-)
V. was quite sad about the snowmen not being able to sleep and getting injured - or worse, eaten! so I had to do something about it!! :-)
Thus I decided to allow him to discover the wonders of FIMO:-)
This above is only a part of the production, we made together, as some snowmen found other homes to live in and some are still wondering somewhere in the toys land and lost their way back:-)
From FIMO we made something like 35 snowmen of all the colors possible and these traveled with us to the first floor to bed every evening for a few weeks until the Snowman fever had finally subsided.. :-)
