Something completely different... food art inspired by "The Power of Poppy Pendle"

The assignment from the elementary school library teacher to the 4th-5th-and 6th graders was to create a character using at least one vegetable. The character had to be from one of the MCBA (Massachusetts Children's Book Awards) books.

Meet "Charlie" from "The Power of Poppy Pendle" by Natasha Lowe.

Lego City Advent Calendar Day 3 and Day 4

 Day 3 is a little pond with a bucket with a pair of ice skates. Appears to be a pie on the bench.

Day 4 is a little stand with a mug. Coffee? Hot cocoa? I think it goes well with the ice skates.

I haven't had a chance to start setting these things up on the display stand that comes with the calendar. I hope to be able to do that soon though. For now I'm assembling them, photographing them, and then tucking them into a little plastic container with a lid on it to keep the pieces safe until later.
