The kids unplugged project this week was toothpicks. http://www.unplugyourkids.com and when I told Lily, she became very excited and said she knew exactly what she wanted to for it. Lily had decided that she wanted to make a star mobile. We drew a shape of a star on paper as a guide, then she filled the star with glue, then laid the cocktail sticks one by one in the shape , then left it to dry. We haven't quite finished yet as she wants to peel the paper off and then paint it. Then she wants to hang it in her bedroom. Lily doesn't very often come up with ideas of what she would like to do, but she was really enthused with this. It also tied in nicely with her routine visit to the dentist, which is on Tuesday. So we ended up having little chats about dental hygiene and the uses of a tooth pick. I really must get my self along to Claire's and look for my camera cable, every one's blogs look so nice when you can see the photo's of what people have achieved. So impressive.
