I've decided to develop further an idea I had for my three choices from the mysterious blue box, which were Clown, Kitchen & Paintbrush.
The story revolves around two main characters, a 'Clown' and a 'Ballerina' (?). The two characters are best friends, have known each other all their lives and are around 3 years old. :)
They are at nursery together playing in the toy kitchen in fancy dress (obviously as a clown and a ballerina). A little scrap breaks out and they fight in typical toddler fashion; pushing & pinching etc. Ballerina then pulls off Clown's colourful afro wig and hits him with it, which is the last straw for Clowny! Clown rips off Ballerina's tutu and storms off to the art area. While painting (with the paintbrush), he notices Ballerina distraught in the background, her tutu in tatters. He feels bad and so paints a pictures of her. (and maybe gives her his Clown neck-ruffle to use as a tutu?)
I wish my object was a tutu as this story would work so much better!! Think I definitely need to incorporate the paintbrush in some more so will keep my thinking cap on. Meanwhile, here are some initial quick sketches I did during my thinking time! Enjoy and please leave feedback! :)
