Typical summer weather and R had friends unexpectedly pop over as they were bored at home. We broke out the crafty box and used glue, tissue paper, paper plates, pipe cleaners, egg boxes, ice cream tubs, straws, feathers and dried pasta to create decorated plates, shakers, fans and treasure boxes. All the girls did their own thing and were allowed to use anything and everything in the box which was "so cool" to quote one friend. R even decided that the straw offcuts made excellent pan pipes when stuck together with masking tape - that's my girl!
Here is just a small selection from the two and a half hours where they amused themselves.
