Friday is Mummy & RJ day.
This Friday, as some of you may have experienced, was a bit of a wash out. We tried to go to the local softplay, but it was booked out all day by sods with cars who can turn up and go. Not great for us bus-ers. We got soaked, and the small boy was howling with disappointment. It was not a fun morning.
On the way back, we dived in the stationery shop on the high street and I replaced our broken-by-flower-stems scissors and bought brown tape and poster paint.
When we got home I got out a couple of old Hello Fresh boxes and told the boy we were going to build him a Rocket! Famous last words…
Firstly I broke down the boxes into box tubes and attempted to sellotape them together (it turned out they werent quite the same shape…). Then I tried to bend the top to make a rocket top. You know I see so many gorgeous craft products on Pinterest (I’ve added a few to my rainy day board) but when I try to make something…well…
But you know what? The boy really enjoyed making it, he got covered in paint and it made him forget about the disastrous, soaking wet trip out.
so it was worth it, even if it’s not Pinterest worthy 🙂
