Ellie at work

Ellie is really into cutting, pasting, colouring, drawing and any combination of the above. She sits for about 45 mins straight doing her “work”. Of course she then has an obsession with all her cut outs. This drives us all crazy. There are a thousand and one things she cuts out. We try to organise them in boxes, but inevitably (how not too) the cut-outs get lost. And so every now and then we weather yet another Ellie episode. “Where is my pink heart?” “Where is the rabbit?” Followed by lots of crying, trying to reason with Ellie, persuading her to communicate with words rather than vocals.

The blue piece is her piano with cut out keys and buttons (ours is a digital piano). *
