It’s a Small World

Peter in Blueberry Land

We have been loving the book Peter in Blueberry Land – a classic Elsa Beskow tale about a little boy who receives help gathering berries for his mother from members of a tiny kingdom.  In the story the Blueberry king taps Peter’s shoe and he shrinks!  We thought we would do a little magic of our own.  After tracing the image onto a blank Shrinky Dink sheet with a pencil and then coloring it in with colored pencils, we popped him (and the Blueberry King & Mrs. Cranberry) into a 350 degree oven!  I asked Geneva what she predicted would happen.  She said, “I think they will turn into ice cream or pies!  Can we eat them?”  Much to her amazement, he did not become dessert but rather a very tiny little character!
