Love those old books…

We borrowed a book from the library called Magnets, Bulbs and Batteries. In it was a picture of a model lighthouse. LE wanted to make one…

Yes, it works 🙂 It has whale marks in the water, of course, and rocks around the lighthouse. We are going to replace the red bulb holder with a smaller one when we buy a globe to go in it! And it will be painted once it’s dry.

And A? He was drawing, and poking holes in clay with pencils. 🙂


Mum, I brought you a plant…

LE: Where can I put it? I know I’ll put it here.

Thanks, son… 🙂

Clay fun

I found some on special on the weekend! I’ve been thinking about doing this for ages. We are very much in the experimental stage – just letting them find out what they can do. Soon I will show them (well mostly the LE) a few different techniques they can try out.

That’s a tunnel, by the way, it didn’t show up very well in the photo.

Clay is good for finger strength and dexterity, and a great tactile experience. My boys find that very calming. So I do too.

While we’ve been off-blog…

I’m hoping to try to update a bit more again. 🙂 See you round!
