Jumping in Puddles
Yep, that's a big puddle of glue and fabric and yarn on my kitchen table.....sitting on a garbage bag.
My eldest nephew stays over on Tuesday nights.
We usually spend about an hour getting all of his weekly homework out of the way in one big session, but this week there's no homework as school finishes for Easter holidays on Friday (didn't they just start back)?
So to pass the normal homework time, we decided to make an Easter Basket.
I didn't have an art smock and he only had his school uniform, so we fashioned a smock out of a plastic shopping bag (just cut two armholes and a neckhole if you're wondering.... but I'm sure you're probably not).
He had a great time swirling all the bits around in the glue, and then plopping them on top, and all the way around the bowl*.
Let's just hope that that the puddle actually dries out by the time Easter rolls around!
* I used a pyrex bowl covered in gladwrap - I've never tried this before so I'm really hoping that it works.
