FOR FANCY POINTER:
- Use a plate or bowl to trace a large half-circle onto a sturdy piece of backing material, such as foam core or cardboard, then cut it out
- Cut pie-piece-shaped sections out of card stock — as many as your child wants to convey her changing moods. Write messages on the sections (ours are on colorful card stock circles) with marker, then attach the sections to the base with a glue stick or double-sided tape.
