Last minute change to plans.
Initially I had thought of making a wreath with Rye and C, using some of the greenery etc we found yesterday in the woods. The downstairs really did need a good sweep, the table in only a day was covered and needed clearing. The kitchen too was a bit a bombsite. Add in a friend said she might pop round this afternoon.
So the crafting turned into something I could quickly show the kids and then leave them to it... what they made isn't quite what I had in mind... the image in my mind eye was more refined..... I think though the children's creations are much more fun!
And here he is sittng on the season table. C had fun making this too, excitedly telling me how she will show her snowmman to her mummy. After this the kids were asking what they could craft next. I did briefly consider painting pinecones and glittering them....... but as I'm trying to clean up a bit while they are nicely occupied., that idea was quickly discarded and instead out came the air drying clay.......
Still we did manage to get it rolled out. This was a craft that involved more of my input, simply because the clay was so difficult to manipulate, I ended up rolling each piece of clay out for the kids, so they could use whichever cutters they wanted.
Probably paint and glitter a few with Rye Thursday afternoon, after Forest school.
Following the crafting, there was play with the magna doodle, some odd game that involved kissing each other on their legs, feet, bum etc? Weird children. And then building large gnome houses from tree blocks and knocking 'em down. And now the minded children are napping and Rye is watching Curious George.
Time to prepare tea then.
