Into a new week of the alphabetphoto project and another letter - the letter C. Aha, I instantly had an idea for this one ... After spotting them on the shelf this week, Pierre has become totally fascinated by these crocodile teeth that we brought back from holiday a couple of years ago. He asked me how the tooth fairy managed to get in and take them without being snapped up by the crocodiles, then wondered what she left for them in place of the teeth because they wouldn't be able to use money !
I've just been showing him the photos from our holiday because he was too young to remember - this was the Crocodile Farm in Djerba, Tunisia, that the teeth came from. (If you want to see more of our Tunisian holiday snaps, they're here.) The park keepers handed out any teeth that they found in the enclosures to visiting children. We weren't lucky enough to get any but we did stumble across a man who was selling them for a handful of coins on the way out.
This also made me laugh because I'd forgotten all the fun we had on that holiday putting a little wooden doll that we'd named Jenny Woodenmum in various silly poses, such as these ones with the crocodiles !
She even had her own blog, which you can see in my sidebar - this is a great project for the kids to get involved in over the summer to keep them busy and bring out their creative side. Maybe we'll take her on holiday again this year and add some more posts !
