Puppaidean ("pupp-a-jen")

At work today the younger children were decorating and naming felt puppets -

Making puppets
Such chaos! The tables are perpetually sticky, but the kids are engrossed in the process of perfecting "na puppaidean" - it's very uplifting stuff to watch, apart from when I had stay behind and hoover up millions of discarded bits of sticky backing!
They do get so attached to their puppets though -

"Too many bellies!"
The little boy on the right decided that the squares were stomachs - "He's going to have a stomach on his EYES!"
The puppet ended up with eleven bellies - "Too many bellies!"
I'll be sad to finish on Friday.
