Have you heard of the Wonder Pets? If you are a parent to a toddler I assume you have, if not---then perhaps this is the first time you are learning of them. They are a team of animals (a guinea pig, a duckling and a turtle) who rescue animals in trouble, from a children's tv program.
We don't allow Cordelia to watch much TV, but she is absolutely crazy about these Wonder Pets so we allow her to watch a bit of Wonder Pets on Netflix. She uses her imagination, playing Wonder Pets, throughout the day. Eric and I are happy that she has turned this into something fun that really fosters her imaginative play and we really love to encourage that kind -o- thing.
Eric had the great idea to make Cordelia her own Wonder Pets cape. So yesterday evening I sewed up a little cape. Eric designed a W logo for the back and put on a snap. When we presented her with the cape she was beyond thrilled. She put it over over her cupcake pajamas and went crazy playing and using her imagination.
Simple project that sure made a big impact. I have no doubt that there will be some public cape wearing in our future. Ahhh, the magic of a cape.
