Summer isn’t over after all then?! We rushed out into the garden this morning to take advantage of the nice weather and embarked on a mission to outer space, and according to William our little four year old friend, after blast off we landed safely on planet England.
Am excited now that the bear is getting old enough to enjoy messy play, so the finger paints, brushes, rollers and stencils all came out (I’ve been dying for this moment), and with William’s mum being a primary school teacher, armed with more paints and aprons, we set to work. Ok, so the mummies persevered for longer; it was fun.
The Paperpod Rocket is fantastic for the garden and parties – it did make a brief appearance at the bear’s first birthday party, but being the indoor gathering that it was due to the typical August weather, didn’t get used to it’s full advantage.
My only thought; to be even more eco friendly, some of the rocket pieces could have been pop outs from the cardboard box it arrived in. Surely there is potential there!
Must resist the tempation to go and stick more stars on while the bear is asleep…
