When Elliot requested a digger craft I wasn’t sure what to do so this sort of took shape on the fly. All the little bits of tissue paper provided him with good practice of cutting and pasting without needing a high degree of accuracy. We’re both total suckers for glitter and use it whenever we can. ‘Diggers’ in Tanzania are generally green so the idea of the orange bulldozer was met with indignation. We compromised and had both but couldn’t fit in a tractor – they are almost always blue!
