Busy Creative Day

Busy day today making smoothies and some baking – homemade sausage rolls and shortbread and gluten and dairy free chocolate cheesecake. The smoothies were for a DIY challenge  towards Jack’s chef badge and he made them himself. Then while Jack was playing and listening to his Moshi Monsters CD I wrote up a hub and a tutorial on how to create a simple cork macramé board for Jewlerylessons.com

Then onto some crafts with a Mr Maker magazine making a glove puppet and stage.

Six challenges completed and uploaded on DIY today, some that we’ve done today and two others that had been finished and waiting to go on. One more challenge to complete to earn the puppeteer, chef and toy maker patches bringing Jack’s collection up to eight patches 😀

Chessington World of Adventures (14/05/2014)

Yesterday we spent the day at Chessington world of Adventures. Jack loves the rides, the faster the better! We spent more time with the animals than we have on other visits and Jack enjoyed reading all the information plaques rather than rushing through having a quick look at each as he has before. He’s picked up loads of new animal facts and after some stray fish came over the fence and hit him, got to throw it back in and feed the sealions.

We also got to watch the tigers being fed and we’re lucky enough to get to spend ages seeing the tigers up close, literally face to face if it hadn’t been for the glass! Beautiful animals and Jack loved it. Lots of reptile spotting in the Creepy cave and of course a trip to Bubbleworks and Hocus Pocus 🙂
