their creative space . . .

I'm all 'tweedied' out this week, so I'm handing over to my 8 year old who has been doing some far more interesting stuff! After giving his bedroom a good 'gutting-out', my Other Half and he, unearthed a kids art book with heaps of papier mache model instructions/ideas - a great book which has been used a number of times by both kids already. So this is what they are making . . . in the middle of the living room floor of course!

This is what it will look like when they are finished and I'll get my living room rug back - I'm sure we'll find some other kiddie junk to fill it with though!!! Bring back the lego - all is forgiven, hehe!

More creative peeps over at Kirsty's fab place :)

P.S. He is very excited about the gold belt buckle which we had to purchase a special tin of Airfix gold paint for - it had better work well or there'll be tears at bedtime, mark my words! : /

Great project! I know the feeling of having no living room floor space though...
