Thank you for all the lovely comments on our little furry creature house; it now has a little garden attached, entirely crafted from tissue paper and egg boxes where Geraniums can frolic in the pond and snooze on the grass as the mood takes them.
We have been very busy outside over the last couple of weeks, but more of that another day. In the meantime, here's something we had lots of fun with on a day when it was too wet to go outside. Marbling paper - it's an oldie but a goodie, and described all over the place, including here.
Lots of fun; I think these are destined to be wrapping paper. They were disturbingly oily at first but we blotted them carefully with newspaper and the eventually dried out.
More colour: 'Mummy needs a cup of tea, here are the Hama beads'
and 'Now we need a break, can we chalk on the floor?' And why not?
