Screwed up!

I am trying to keep up, promise. It gets real busy round here sometimes! I hope you have had a nice weekend. We have been really busy and messed about with lots of paper over the past few days.

Friday we made this screwed up picture from some tissue paper and glue…

We did lots of cutting…

Little man had the chalk board out this weekend too…that’s a truck by the way!

But the big project was papier mache. We are making a tunnel for the brio train set. We ran out of newspapers and had to go begging from the neighbours!

tunnel1This miter block looked very lonely in the garage so we rescued it. Then we masked some newspaper to it….

tunnel 2Mixed some pva with some water to make it runnier

tunnel .Then slapped on a load of scrumpled newspaper and painted it with the pva.

 tunnel 5It’s dry now. It took ages to ease it off the bottom of my very large baking tray. I am really going to have to invest in something just for craft projects!

Watch this space for the finished project. We will be painting it next weekend!
