What I did on my holidays.....part 5

Ok so nearly finished this series of posts, well done for sticking with me!
We had a great creative summer doing all sorts of things at the good old spotty kitchen table. Here are a few highlights. Not all the projects were done with all three kids. These days I try to work with one at a time and really give them chance to make something different.

Making Ice cream. ( this one was Kit Kat flavour!)
They love chopping with the hachoir set. (I think that's what its called.)
Using big wooden beads to make paper people.

T shirt decorating using fabric crayons.

Mosaic. Always a popular one. This is on one of those very cheapy IKEA mirrors.
Note to self to buy some more.
Used tiles, buttons, bead, anything that came to hand

Making car cushions, this one has arms to hug. More T shirts, this time with a little screen printing.

The 10 year old came up with this design for a mythical creature and we are a little short on ink so its red and blue smeared together. Looks quite cool actually! We had a fab holidays, hope your was as good!

Looks like you had an amazing time - I wish my days were half as creative as yours, I'm especially jealous of the mosaic mirrors, that's been on my list for ages :D
