Here are a couple of paper toys that Ruben made today:
He's been making these kinds of things for a few weeks. He'll draw and cut, and then say something like, "Now I need to add an ear," or "Oh! I forgot the boots." Then he'll draw and cut some more and then tape all of his pieces together and play with his finished work. Most of them are paper figures like the lion and the Batman above, but there are also ladders, buildings, axes, brooms and trees, which sometimes have sticks held on with lots of tape that add support to the structure. He is figuring it out as he goes, sometimes with some frustration, but mostly with pure have-to-stay-up-late-so-I-can-finish-this excitement.
I love watching this explosion of creativity.
