junk modelling...





Today we modelled with cardboard.
For weeks we have stock piled the cardboard recycling... cereal boxes, egg boxes, loo roll inners.
For weeks I have been nagged.. 'mummy when can we do junk modelling?'
Today we made a start.
Charlie's creation: a space ship
Rufus' creation: a tractor
They really enjoyed the process of finding a use of odd shapes and sticking it all together.
{the tractor lasted all of 20 minutes, before he got bored and pulled it to bits!}.
So... that's number 2 ticked off the list.

    I love their concentrated serious expressions.

    Is that a Dorset cereal box I see? Have you entered the code to win a camper van? I may becoming obsessed with the idea of winning one. Maybe I will manifest it!!
