My nephew has the uncanny ability to suddenly and dramatically transform from a sweet, innocuous child to a ferocious predator on the hunt. Sometimes his animal of choice is the lion (Simba or Mufasa to be exact), but most of the time it is the T-Rex.
His love for dinosaurs extends beyond the games he creates as a prehistoric beast. He knows nearly everything there is to know about each type of dinosaur, and he will correct you if you call a Stegosaurus a Brontosaurus. He finishes your sentences as you read him his massive dinosaur book.
The imagination that flows from this knowledge astounds me. He comes up with elaborate plots for the dinosaur family, (he’s the daddy, of course, and you’re the mommy, the baby, or the victim) and he stays in character for hours.
But sometimes it is nice to have a prop or two to go a long with your imaginations. I created this spiky dinosaur hat especially for him. It is nice during playtime and on cold winter days.
I designed this pattern and used Sugar ‘n Cream cotton.
