I think it was somewhat an ode to the 1980s TV show Trap Door, that I secretly still love.My three year old made lots of cyclops worm beasts and skewered them like coctail sausages and my four year old made a hunormous splatty two dimensional dude with lots of eyes and what looks like a rare skin complaint.
I helped them make other monsters that they took apart and reassembled in various weird and wonderful ways. All in all it was rather fun and I could shove it all in a tupperware container for us to play with again another time. Maybe when they are older we can have some fun doing real claymation!
The kids asked to do this again the next day when their friends were over, so we did and they made lots more funny little dudes.
