School is out

Yippee...school is out and my children are now officially on holiday. The craft box is almost ready. I love to have a box full of craft stuff, colouring books, glue, pom poms etc. that they can dip into to get their creativity flowing. So I am going to have a short blog break, please do come back to me and I promise to show and tell all the projects I have been working on throughout the week, I might even get to finish one or two. This 'Art work' was from the Christmas craft box. Pinch pots, it took a couple of sittings, first they made the pots and coloured in the wooden dolls. Once the pots were dry we painted them them I varnished them. They sit on our kitchen window ledge and the boys often ask for them to be passed down to play with them. I wounder what they will create this week. Have a really good week, craft lots and always have a 'cuppa' on the go.

Those pinch pots and little people nearly brought a tear to the eye - no prizes for guessing why ! Have a great week, and look foward to seeing some of the results.

How funny - we've been decorating those little wooden people today too! Amy has made a little set of 2 boys and 2 girls complete with woolly hair - helps to have a mum with a major stash of yarn!

how well I remember those days of half term and teh planning that went into entertaining three kids - now I have one 17 year old and two grown up - so I mostly send them parcels with 'things' in and make sure Owen has enough to eat before he disappears off to see his friends. so - what am I saying? enjoy all this time - as it sounds like you are - because it will be over before you know it! sorry to be glum!
