For us school holidays mean crafting for at least a couple of full days, plus lots of hours snatched here and there. Luckily for me Roxy loves it, as does Amara, a special friend. So yesterday this is what the girls got up to:
Cheat’s papier mache donuts (the top section you can see is icing – the donut underneath is a different colour), and illustrated softies.
The girls drew onto calico with paint markers and chose fabrics for the backs before sewing and stuffing their softies.
Amara is only 10 – aren’t her illustrations fantastic?! She loves to draw and create things and she obviously has an amazing talent for it. I think she should open an etsy shop and sell some cards and prints and things. What do you think? And of course I just love Roxy’s pirate cookie complete with eye patch and peg leg. And, curiously, lots of tears.
Much more was made, as well as a lot of mess, and a great day was had by all three of us.
