Apologies for lapsing on my Easter holiday ideas. Mr Sweetpea is back to work after a week off last week and I work Sundays so it is back to full on mayhem with all the kiddies at home (a nice but tiring mayhem).
The other day I was pondering on what to do with our Easter egg boxes. I do hate throwing things away (partly due to my eco ways and also an inherited hording gene :-) ). I remembered that when I was I child I loved making boxes into houses and thought maybe the kiddies would like a go. I had some wallpaper samples and the kiddies and I got to work cutting and sticking to turn the boxes into rooms. They really enjoyed this after the initial arguments over who had what box, who had which wallpaper, who had what pair of scissors!
After a couple of hours or crafting they created a little house with cardboard furniture and little felt rugs. Little baby sweetpea just spent the time gluing her box. She got upset if you tried to get her to stick anything to the glue so she just made a sticky box instead.
Not sure what to do with the smaller egg boxes yet, any ideas?
This afternoon the oldest Sweetpea and middle Sweetpea went to take Ted (one of our dogs) for a walk on their own. They are getting to that independent age now but I am still a little uncomfortable with them walking off alone. They were walking on the route which has hardly any road crossings and the oldest Sweetpea cam running home with a pidgeon that had a compound fracture to its wing. He was so wishing to help it recover but I am not sure we can help the poor thing. He is currently in Sweetpeas room in a box snuggled in a towel and in the dark but I think he will die of shock :-( I am in two minds as to whether to put it out of its misery now or wait and see how he gets on. Better be off I suppose. Hope you all had a fab fab weekend in the sunshine.
