indoor and outdoor play
Beren has gone Junior masterchef on me and this week he wanted to make toffee. This recipe called for water, sugar, vinegar and butter. It gives it an opaque look, we went for christmas green colouring but the damn stuff hardened so quickly the sprinkles didn't stick.
Nienna on the other hand has gone 'born again christian' and decided she needed a nativity scene "cos christmas is all about jesus don't ya know!". Once I talked her out of the lifesize one she had in mind she sented for some printable templates and got to colouring and gluing. We just need to make the 'barn' and it will be complete. I have no idea where she learnt the christmas story or anything.
Late yesterday the pair of them disappeared down the back to the BBQ area laboratory and had fun mixing chalk dust and dirt and water. Nienna will spend ages down here getting dirty but this is the first time Beren has joined it. They were there for over an hour so it must have been fun!
