The little cuties had a good time trying on bumpy eagle feet and trying to catch wet, squirmy soap fish. (A little soap and water makes for fun play with Toddlers). I made these “eagle feet” by hot gluing together this mitten pattern.
okay, maybe not. But, like the bumps on an Eagle’s foot, the bubble wrap made it easier for the kids to grip wet soap. Like our bar of ivory soap, fish are squirmy and slippery and can slip right out from under an Eagle’s foot if they didn’t have coarse, bumpy feet. And with those talons, no fish can escape that grip.

It was a fun day celebrating Independence Day with an Oatland animal theme!
Next Tuesday, in honor of Teddy Bear Picnic Day, we are having a teddy bear picnic. If you can come, please bring your favorite stuffed animal. It doesn’t have to be a teddy bear, we won’t discriminate. If you have food allergies, bring a snack for tea time. There will be fruit and herbal decaf tea as well for our picnic. See you next time…
