Aikido at the Budokan
This is completely out of sync, I was the unofficial photographer for the day and it took me forever to edit all the pics of all the kids! It was an annual national Aikido meet for the kids, we missed it last year because it clashed with our flights. Let's ...
This year Ebi-kun is the highest ranking in the kids from his dojo but still one of the smallest (but not the youngest, he just happens to be a bit of a squirt!) It was a fun day and not too hot in the dojo but outside was awfully hot! We finished off having dinner at a nice Italian place.

Ebi-kun has had his little heart set on building his own den or treehouse for months. We went down the route of a sheets and sticks but it just wasn't cutting it! Unfortunately we don't have a tree so the treehouse was out which left us with a den. Now, I w...

Speedy Science - mobius strips
Another fun and quick science activity. What you need: Piece of paper Tape Pen Scissors We didn't have a long piece of paper handy so we cut 2 strips of A4, about 3cm wide. Then taped the short ends to make one long strip. Then hold one end of the strip and...
Then hold one end of the strip and give the rest a half twist and tape the two ends together (if you imagine the paper has a front and back, you tape the front to the back). This will give you a loop. Put the pen in one spot in the middle of the inside of the loop and draw a line through the ...

Build your own den part 3
We left you hanging, wondering about the solution to the concrete foundation blocks! Before that got figured out the boys measured the frame and cut the wood to size. Starting off with the hand saw.. But soon moved onto the power saw. Once all the frame pie...
This is where we needed daddy muscle on site, the blocks are really heavy and he decided that the best thing would be to dig holes and level them that way. Easier said than done! Eventually we got all 7 blocks in. There was a lot of taking out and putting in. I'm pretty sure this wasn't the most ...
