Flour letters

Elizabeth's quasi-imaginary friends Beeta and Maka are apparently extraordinary storytellers who like to tell Elizabeth story after story. Unfortunately, she usually can't hear them unless someone is helping them to talk. Since Elizabeth is a story monster, that means Mommy has had to come up with a lot of stories. Elizabeth wants you to know that a story monster just means that she likes stories a whole lot. But even if she was a real monster, she would be a "fwendwee" one, not a scary one. Sometimes Elizabeth demands a (pre)"tend" story, and sometimes she wants a "weel" one. The following is "weel":

 

Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Elizabeth. Elizabeth's mommy heard that other little girls liked to write their letters using tinfoil lined containers covered in flour. "That sounds like a fun pre-writing exercise", said Elizabeth's mommy. So Elizabeth helped her cover a baking tin with tinfoil and Mommy sprinkled a generous layer of flour on the bottom. When Elizabeth saw the tin, she took her hand and smacked it hard into the flour. Poof! went the flour. Elizabeth was VERY surprised. She did enjoy writing E for Elizabeth, M for Mommy and a few other letters, before spending quite a long time drawing. It was kind of like a low tech etch-a-sketch with bonus sensory play thrown in. After a while, there wasn't enough flour left in the tin and so Elizabeth went to have lunch instead.

 

Mommy wondered how kids made ginormous messes pre-Internet...

She's got quite the imagination! Her pretend friends and Ali's party friends could get into a lot of trouble together.
