Tinkering
It has been so long since we wrote a blog post! I thought I'd share what we did yesterday as it's something T has enjoyed for a long time- taking things apart. This time it was our old printer. Obviously we have to check that there's nothing in there that c...

We have a new pet rabbit, his name's Jasper and we love him. He eats pellets, hay and our vege scraps but
we get that many vege scraps that I wanted to make something I could

recipes on th...

a kitty container
I found this very cute upcycling project here . You just use good, sharp scissors to cut a empty 1.5 l fizzy bottle to shape, paint the outside, let it dry and draw on features. This one is M's. I'm going to use the same idea to make T a bear one. I'll pain...

stined glass
I did this in two classrooms last week ( we made rainbows) and I bought home the left over materials. The idea is to sellotape clear book cover sticky side up to the table top. I put a white piece of paper under it to make it easier to see the colours. Stic...

a stick and wool mobile
It rained when we visited my mum in Wellington recently. I knew T
would enjoy this craft as it involved wrapping sticks with lots of
different coloured wool- it really is as simple as that. Once they're
all done, tie them together, hang a rock or other t...

leaf fairies
M's idea- similar to the animal idea we tried, have a look here at how we've used leaves before today. Today it was fairies and elves. I though some water colour paints would be good to use too.
