But he indulged my idea, and we rolled pea-sized amounts of sculpey into little blueberry balls, then placed them in a pan for baking.
Once they were hardened and sufficiently cooled, we painted them with a dark blue acrylic.
Although Mary's presentation on the green felt bushes was nicer, Finn preferred to roll them all over the kitchen floor so he'd have more "picking" to do.
One by one, Finn's berries went "kuplink, kuplank, kuplunk" until he'd gathered all of his blueberries into his pail.
And then we paused for a snack of more edible blueberries. (I love the little fingernails trimmed in blue paint.)
What a tasty treat!
When we finished gathering blueberries a few more times, Finn asked if we could read Blueberries for Sal again and again until lunchtime. We settled on 3 more readings.
With Finn providing the "kuplink, kuplank, kuplunk", of course!
