We made a cricket

Which looks suspiciously like a grasshopper, but we didn't have any black pipe cleaners, and honestly, that wouldn't be as cute.

This didn't come entirely out of the blue. Calvin started reading The Cricket in Times Square today, a book I'd suggested to him because we'll be going to a stage adaptation later in the month. He read the first two chapters today and probably would have continued if I hadn't stopped him to ask him to tell me about it so far. I can tell it's going to be a hit, but in general any book with critters is a big hit with him.

I got the craft idea from this website, although we altered it to look a little more like a cricket.
