Cherry Tree. . . and Mr Toast's theme this Tuesday is TREE. . .

Boogie Bedhead and Toggle climbed up the Cherry Tree...to get to the best Cherries..... oops, they're stuck... How on earth are they going to get down?......

Had lots of giggles with my before school care kids...suggestions such as... a sparrow goes and tells Mum...
A flock of sheep come along and stand underneath...Boogie and Toggle leap down onto them....
Old farmer spots them way off in the distance and tells the Firemen.....
Aliens......

 I love children's minds....they are on my wave length..... everything and anything is possible!!!!!

Pop over to Mr Toast's Creative Tuesday and see what tree'ts.... are on offer..... :)

LOL, so cute! I like the sheep idea, myself. Not sure the sheep would enjoy it, though!

Christine said...

Birdie said...

Why on earth would they want to get down? Cherries for dinner anyone?

This is adorable

linda said...

Wonderful story and painting! The ways to get down make me smile. Wouldn't it be lovely to keep such simplistic ideas.

So cute...maybe someone should call the fire department? Nope, I think the kids ideas are much better. Hope they got some cherries! :-)

if only Boogie could transmorph(?!) herself into Eliza Doolitte then she could call a horse, a cow, a goat AND a sheep and then instruct them each to stand on top of one another....THEN they would have a wonderful animal ladder to climb down :) Sorted! xx
Ps thankyou for your wonderfully kind words of support :)x
