Although it would seem as i look back through photos that Bastille day was a bright and sunny one.
I constructed a very simple Bastille from a couple of boxes and some file folders and charlie has spent many an hour painting and playing.
|excuse the hair , he had been in the pool!|
what else have we been up to,
we have made snow, using a kid i got from here http://www.play.com/Toys/Toys/4-/14445189/Weird-Science-Lab-The-Snow-Factory-Make-Your-Own-Snow/Product.html?searchstring=snow&searchtype=TOYS&searchfilters=s%7bsnow%7d%2bc%7b2317%7d%2b&pa=search&page=search&d=1&ob=4&urlrefer=search
The kids enjoyed this, i was a bit disappointed, i think we could of got the same result from putting a disposable nappy in the washing machine, and , yes, iv accidental done that a few times!!!
we also made a bouncy ball also from a kit from Play.com. here's the link.http://www.play.com/Toys/Toys/4-/14445181/-/Product.html?opFR=true.
It was Jasmines idea to take some pictures of what we could see, i didn't think it would work but as you can see it did indeed!!!! Very pretty!
http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/books/article2537936.ece.It worked well and our heart shape is getting more and more solid as we leave it to set.
Charlie and Jasmine planted a Norwegian spruce seed or four.
And pressed some flowers too.
http://www.herewearetogether.com/?p=2068 and we turned one of the kids bedroom windows in to a stuning stained glass window with tissue paper and washable glue.Think you will agree it looks lovely.It looks amazing from outside too.And it blocks out the horrid rain that seems to be insisting on falling!!!
And the last thing to report is that Paul has inspired a new found love of origami in Jasmine.
These have progressively grown bigger and bigger, and been thrown from doors and bedroom windows too.
These are just a few bits Jasmine has come up with over the last day or so, we have had pigs, hats, crowns, boxes, an ambulance, houses,cats and dogs to name a few!
I will leave you with this big smiley happy face , made by Jasmine...we did make it to the beach between showers yesterday!
