The GO ship

The GO ship

There is much to discover when sailing the high seas…you never know when you’ll see land again. Our imaginations can take us anywhere we want to go. Here, high seas adventure started with a piece of cloth, a few wood blocks, some masking tape and a few bits of string. I can just smell the salt air, can’t you.

You know those times when you see something cute in a magazine and you think…”I want to make that”! Well that’s just what Chloe said to her mom, so they hopped in the car and headed for CReATE! After some fun collaborative mother daughter time, they had their very own horsey, just like the picture they saw in the magazine (except theirs was pink)!
