simple food chain

Araina is fascinated with the food chains of different animals and plants. She is also very crafty with our big box of recyclables, felt scraps, markers and tape. Put the two together and she made this little food chain over the weekend- owl, mouse, and cheese. However, I’m not sure if this food chain will actually take place, the mouse appears to be smiling!

Check out this neat food chain game  which we stumbled upon over the weekend. It’s a very fun site which includes decomposers in some of the food chains.

    oh how wonderful! I love when children take a scientific concept and express it with art! It is so cute, I may just want to take this idea and use it when my babies are old enough! Love the use of recycled materials! Thank you!

    Adorable! Maybe the mouse will eat the cheese, then turn the tables and eat the owl too… Perhaps that is why it is smiling.

    Soooo cute.
    Yup– that mouse definitely looks like “the canary who fooled the mouse.”

    The mouse might be smiling but not the cheese! I just love how she made these… the sticky tape is just my favourite!
    Blessings and magic to your clever Little Lady.

    How dear is that? For some reason it reminds me of the story The Marzipan Pig (have you ever read it? It’s beautifully macabre).

    I agree. That mouse looks a wee bit too happy. :)

    Very creative. I know the mice that live around us wish they weren’t so low on the food chain (or maybe they just wish our cats would move away).:)
