I've allocated and titled up a ringbinder that we will use to put pictures that we create in and also photos of any models that we make.
The title comes from the book of the same name:
It's an Usborne children's activity book that is priced on the back at £20!! But, get this, I got it (new!) in a charity shop for just 50p!! Yay!
(Following and copying the instructions)
I then moved on to these monkey collages:
And, because the gas man took his time, I got started on the next project, making cardboard dinosaurs. Then, whilst I went shopping, I asked my husband to get the boys to help him finish the models off by making some cardboard trees. Good as gold (for a change!), they did this and the scene was complete for when I got back:
Roooooaaaar!! (Good fun, but you need some nice comfortable handles on your scissors when cutting all that cardboard).
Taking a look at the book we worked out that some of the Summer themed projects were buried in amongst, say some Christmas projects or ones with an Easter theme, so we decided that we will just pick and choose what we do from it after all.
are obsessed with like playing Minecraft, so it will be useful to have a creative outlet on our non-Sunshiny days that doesn't involve the computer!
We are off to Ireland on Sunday but plan to take the book and some basic supplies with us. Hopefully we will get chance to do some more of the projects whilst over there. I am also hoping to carry on creating index cards for the ICAD project, I am still keeping up with that most days. I will be back later to show you some of my latest creations.
Thanks for looking and for any comments,
