Constructing maps of continents out of various toys is a popular activity these days, so I decided to get one or two on record. The best part of the first one is when Alex corrects Ben's pronunciation of "Tajikistan". (By the way, if you're wondering, Ben is dressed up as Teddy the wizard from the Magic Treehouse books).
Alex chose to make his map out of stuffed animals, instead. It's of Africa. Unfortunately the camera memory card filled up before he got to tell us the North African countries. (He's dressed as Kathleen, the selkie/wizard from M.T.)
