Claymation

We have a couple books that are illustrated with clay.  Shayla is always very interested in how they get the play dough into the book like that.  So we created our own Claymation story, took pictures, printed it off and made a book.  Here it is:
 
The Adventures of June and Feea
By Shayla and Mommy
 
One sunny day, June, the ladybug was out for a walk.

All of a sudden, a big rock was rolling towards her.
She ran for cover under a beautiful flower.

Hiding under the flower was her friend, Feea, the snail.
They decided to follow the stepping stones and go exploring.

They came to a huge rolling rock that they had to climb on.

So June jumped on top and Feea jumped on the side because
she was slow.

On the other side of the rock was an apple. June and Feea
were hungry.

So they each took a big bite of the yummy apple.

Out of nowhere, rain started to fall. It was a stormy day.
Feea jumped on a sailboat.

Meanwhile, June found a shelter. Feea joined her friend and they
stayed safe and warm. Finally Feea`s Mom came to the shelter
and helped the girls find their way back home.
 
The End

Great story! You must have done this during Tristan's nap? I can't see him passing up the chance to play with play dough ;)
