  2. First the children made a small puddle, then blew on it through a straw.

  3. Did it look like anything, yet? Did it need a different color? More paint? A harder puff? What if we turn the page that way?

  4. All of a sudden, there it was! "He needs sunglasses!" Maddie shouted excitedly.

  5. So now just to just add a few embellishments.....

  6. Bugs, fish, alien galaxies....
