My secret picture message my big girl... cos she is :)
I found this great idea from another blog ( oh my gosh there are some amazing bloggers out there!! Mine sometimes looks positively boring!) and thought I would make it for Jared. Not being a real crafter, I wanted to find some new things for him this year when Jumeirah goes to school. This was a perfect start :)
Its here at Plum Pudding and was pretty simple to make. Now mine is only in the very early stages as yet, I wanted to see how it would go before I pour too much effort into it.
Heres the bones of it
Heres what he came out to :)
He had a great time with it for quite awhile. I noticed someone else hovering over it and as soon as he left it, Jumeirah had claimed it and was happily setting up some very peculiar play scene involving a pregnant dinosaur and her friends who were fighting over dinner (?) Imagination is an amazing thing at 5.
After the fun of candle dripping yesterday, I asked Jumeirah to help me with another Candle activity. This time, we had to draw a picture that would be a secret and then paint over it. We decided to do one for each other. She started off with a candle but they are really heavy so she changed to a white crayon which was just as good as just as invisible ( a while ago, I did a secret map with this candle technique and she loved it. See it here.)
Once we had drawn each other a picture, we both painted over them. Its such a graet surprise to see an invisible picture suddenly appear!! And once we had finished, she made one for daddy to do too:)

And for our afternoon treat ( I was thinking chocolate/icecream/ or both...) they wanted to make Jelly.
"But not normal Jelly mum cos its a bit boring for today, how about wobbly jelly!"
Hmmm ok.. so I left them to it :) Its made pretty much the same but it has to be made into something you can get it OUT of. I was lucky to find these little containers which was PERFECT for wobbly jelly, or so I was told :)
