Happy Platypus Day!

Betcha ya didn't know today was Platypus Day? Actually I think I read somewhere that Australia has National Platypus Day on Feb. 2 (don't quote me on that) but today Disney has deemed it Platypus Day in honor of Perry the Platypus. If you are not familiar with this semi-aquatic pet/secret agent you can find more about him HERE.
Because of the above beloved cartoon character this beloved boy (below) has become slightly obsessed with platypus, Australia and the art of becoming a secret agent.
He's a walking encyclopedia of platypus facts. "Did you know that their eggs are more like leather? Did you know that they have up to a dozen burrows? Did you know they have hard pads in their bills to crunch up dinner? Did you know...."
So, today I thought I would share with you some of the platypus crafts that we've done.
I made this little stuffed plattie using the pattern I found HERE.

Abraham made the above platypus using an egg carton and some construction paper. 
 Today, to celebrate Platypus Day we made these cuties. We used Rice Krispy squares, vanilla cream wafers, Townhouse crackers, chocolate chips and frosting.

Now the kids are informing me I've spent too much time on the computer and it's time to watch a few episodes of Phineas & Ferb. Hope you all enjoy your weekend!
Happy Platypus day!

Thanks you for stopping by...Happy Creating & God Bless!

Can't talk now--gotta go make some of those ADORABLE platypus snacks! And yes, sadly, I did know today was Platypus Day (pi day is coming up in case you're interested) because my dear son is a fan of a) Phineas and Ferb, and b) all weird "day" designations! Love all your platypus crafts!
