Today, we’re going to make some ‘stained glass’ decorations! We need some squares of paper, a craft knife and some double-sided sticky tape. Oh, and some coloured cellophane wrappers from chocolates. We had to eat the chocolates. The things we do for Art!
First of all, we’re drawing shapes on our paper to cut out. We’re choosing designs that will suit the colours of cellophane we’ve got.
Now we need to make the back of the paper sticky, with the double-sided tape. Before we peel the back off, we’re going to cut out the shapes we’ve drawn.
Then we peel the backing off the tape. What a fiddly job it is! Er, Matilda, are you stuck there?
Now, we put the cellophane on the sticky side, and press it down. And then trim the extra from round the edge.
So here we are! These look nice hung up in a window, where the sun can shine through them. And if you like, you can draw extra details on, like Matilda did with her Father Christmas. Ho ho ho!
Well, Matilda and the girls went out today for her ‘hen do’. They all went to a country house for a spa day. Matilda made sure they all had sashes, and they got her a veil and an L plate to wear!
First of all, they had a relaxing Yoga session. Well, Esther said she’d pass on that because once she lies down, her shell makes it awkward to get up again. Mary said she didn’t want to take her hat off and Fury said she couldn’t say Om without giggling.
After the Yoga, Peggy wanted to try the Special Botanicals Face Masque. Matilda said it put her in mind of wanting a sandwich.
Then it was time for the sashes to come off for a soak in the Hot Tub! Mary and Esther stayed dry – both claimed to be too ticklish for the bubbles.
All out of the tub and wrapped up in fluffy towels, it was time to open the champers!
Meanwhile, Winston had arranged a stag outing for the lads. We wondered why he’d brought us to a hilly field.
Oh! It’s an off-road driving experience! There’s a quad bike to hire! In fact, there’s all sorts of vehicles to drive about in.
Vincent liked the tractor, and Ernest enjoyed giving Micro and Nano a lift! I liked the quadbike myself.
There was even a motorbike just right for Micro, and Nano had a whale of a time in the digger!
Back at the Spa, Fury said she was sure she could hear a lot of noise, and wanted to check it out.
Oh! We’ve all been at the same place and didn’t know it! Well, Fury’s not going to pass up a go on a quadbike!
Now that we’re all here together, we might as well get together for a little buffet party, eh?
Dim was listening to the radio earlier choosing spooky music for the Halloween party, when Ofelia came in and said she was making pumpkin soup, but she’d run out of cumin, and could he go and fetch some please?
