Planning a Pet Shop

After a recent rainy day field trip to our local pet store, G decided it was time to reopen her pet shop. She wanted a new name, landing on Pigeon's Pet Shop (because we looove Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus books).

We made a list of animals that we would like to have in the pet shop, including ladybugs and pandas.

"We need baby hamsters. There were babies at the pet store when we went." hmmm...okay. We had two hamsters from Safari Ltd Incredible Creatures line, but babies??? How was I going to pull that off?

Then lightbulb! It hit me. We had several Safari Ltd pet toobs left over from another project and they have hamsters! They are small and cute and perfect as babies. We are so excited.

This am we did a little research. Did yoy know that hamsters can have 3-12 babies at once?

We will continue to plan our pet shop. G is a well-organized 4 year old.

Have a fun and playful day
