You get a blog! I can’t actually cope; i’ve looked at it all carefully and i can’t quite believe what has happened and therefore i think i might just ignore it. 38 orders (and 8 ebay ones) in one day. Mindblowing. I took well over £1000; i only took £1600 in the whole of last December!
and here is what we did today.
A first try; both girls drew it the opposite way to how it actually was, so then we added compasses to it all and figured out that none of it was very helpful. So we had another go, including a bit of conversation on how to accurately copy shapes and then fibnally Fran and i worked on using a ruler and grid to produce a reasonably well scaled version.
Personally, i love Maddy’s boatman with fish head popping up from the water.
Actually what the kids mostly did today was rehearse and eventually perform a song from The Little mermaid. Maddy was Sebastian (rather wonderfully), Amelie was Ariel and Fran was an add on Mermaid/prompter. they put loads of effort into it and the set, really got Amelie and Josie involved and did a great job. In fact, if i can figure out YouTube, i might try a video tomorrow.
They also did some rather cute Fimo models and um… gosh, no idea. But they were busy all day and eventually all fell asleep on the floor in a fleece tent.
Okay, back to the parcels then!
