Made

15 Mar

Any idea what we made this weekend? There are three separate creations pictured here so no need to imagine a combination of these elements, that wouldn’t be pretty. Answers at the end…

We had a successful forage at the NCT sale yesterday returning with among other bargains a Brio Dumper Truck, a wooden abacus, a multitude of small cars, a cot bumper, jumpers, tshirts, vests, a posh shirt and two immaculate books from my ‘most wanted’ list: Eric Carle’s ‘My Very First Book of Colours’ and Rod Campbell’s ‘Buster Gets Dressed’ . These are the kind of books that Lachlan loves, sturdy, playful and full of objects he knows and can name. We’re saving Buster for a rainy day along with a ‘vrooming’, light flashing pick-up truck which being a small boy of course he adores.

The cats are continuing to give Lachlan lots to think about it. Koshka’s capture of a mouse and its subsequent escape in the kitchen late last night was the topic of conversation over breakfast and he kept a close eye on the cats vigil next to the washing machine. So, mouse has been a word that we’ve been hearing a lot today but no sign of the actual escapee…

So did you guess what our creations were?

#1 Some slime made from a concoction of cornstarch, water and green food colouring. Poured into a plastic bag it transforms into a ‘squishy bag’ for Lachlan as per instructions from the Toddler Busy Book (yes, again! slightly obsessed by this book at the minute)

#2 Topping for a lovely rhubarb crumble which has since been polished off.

#3 Cocoa butter and kpangan butter melting to make ‘massage’ bars. What could be better than diy moisturiser with the only additive being mandarin oil? Smells like chocolate orange.
