OK, I Can See It Now

The products of my kindergarten volunteer work are not always immediately obvious. Sometimes, I cut construction paper into shapes that the children will glue into creatures or make sections of yarn that will become the drawstring to a paper costume. It’s a kind of mystery until Q-ster brings a completed project home, days or weeks later.

Remember those little blue boxes I taped back at the beginning of the month? Well, one came home today in finished form.

I thought that perhaps it was some kind of butterfly box (antennae, heart shaped wings,) but the tag says “My snowplow is named Mike.”

Snowplow? I asked Q-ster to be sure. “Is this a butterfly?”
“No, it’s a snowplow.”
“Did you read a book about snowplows? Was there one named Mike?”
“No, we read about Katy, a tractor that uses a snowplow.”

I did a little web search, and sure enough. Snowplow.

Wow, that's abstract. The heart is a plow and the blue box is the tractor.
I would never have guessed.

I agree. Abstract! I guess these California kids don't see too many real-life snowplows!

I'm not sure I would have been able to figure that one out, either.
