Our Diorama wanna be ~ with some fabric help

My little guy loves animals, like most children I would think. Animals inspire all of us to curiosity and wonder.  
Well we decided one day to try and put Isaac's hard plastic animals back into the wilderness. 

OuR WanNa bE ~

The only problem is the variety of animals we seem to own. Typically Lions and chickens don't hang out in the same habitat, and a giraffe and chicken don;t tend to be best buds.  ;) But hey we had fun. So this could be  the African wilderness, or some farm land in the mid west. :)

The brown fabric is mud...suggested by Isaac.
The blue fabric is a small body of water. 
The green fabric is the grass.

We used:
long shallow Cardboard box
Recyclables for different ground levels 
Plastic toy animals
Tp tupes, card-stock and crayons for the tp trees

I grabbed a few bits and bobs from the recycle pile for under the grass for different levels of ground.
Isaac and I made some of those tp tube trees that take two minutes and tada very quick simple fun.  The girls liked this too and we all have rearranged it several times.  The great cardboard box came from the same stash as my polka dot cardboard town post. I am also working on another project with this same cardboard stash. (blush ;))

Using what we have in our west corner. and enjoying being together.

Goodnight from here to all you there. (wherever there may be)

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. 
2 Cor. 12:9
