The boys are right into crafty things. We have a giant box filled to the brim with all sorts of bits and pieces. They love it.
I don’t love it as much as they do.
Ok look. I do love being creative, I really truly do. I just have an issue with my house being glitter bombed and being left to clean up 8.75 million teeny tiny pieces of cut up paper. I also, and I’ve mentioned this before, have something broken somewhere between my brain and my fingers. The wonderfully amazing ideas I have rushing around my head are never the same as the end result and that frustrates the bajeezus out of me.
We have, however, made a bit of a list of some “projects” we’d like to try out. A lot of the items on the list are only on there because I’ve agreed to something when I wasn’t really paying attention. Damn it all. But they’re on the list now apparently and with school holidays coming up I’ve been told we’re going to be making stuff…..
Here’s some of the things on the list:
Draw a silhouette, cut out and roll up magazine bits and stick them down within the shape.
