Squid obsessions

Isn’t it funny what children become obsessed with. One trip to the South Australian museum, and they were hooked on squids! (For those of you who don’t know, there’s a life-size giant squid built into a lift shaft in the museum). The kiddies went with Grandma and Grandpa, and then a few days later, had to take Mummy and Daddy on a tour. Complete running commentary and excitement as we made our way up the 4 flights of stairs.

And these are some of our follow ups:

Toilet roll and wool squids

And millions of drawings (here are my two faves)

As well as our craft activities, we hit the library and checked out a number of non-fiction books to look at the pictures. And watched a few youtube videos too.

And it all culminated in this:

The Giant Squid Cafe and Restaurant!
