GINGERBREAD MAN FAVORS / FREE PRINTABLE BAG TOPPER

I know Christmas is soooo far away but I have an awful lot of projects to post
(better late than never!)
and you can use the ideas for this Christmas.



Now I have to be truthful I am no master baker so I use pre made Gingerbread men.

These were made for the cake stall (bake sale) at the village Christmas Fayre

ANIMATION WORKSHOP

Liam was kindly taken to a Big Red Studio animation workshop this half term
at The Mitchell Arts Centre, Stoke-on-Trent.


They main plasticine sea creatures,
then moved and reposed their creatures on a backdrop
taking a photo after each move

and this was the result of Liam's, Ben's and Donna's hard work...

I am proud to introduce today feature film...

"A Turtle's Tale 2"

Liam's is the blood thirsty Hammerhead shark,
whilst Ben and Donna chose the more gentle turtle's and sea snake!

(Pst I so wish I had tagged along, it is so my thing!!!)


a 'BIG' Thank You to Ben and Donna for taking Liam with you
(and Tim for finding the activity)

I have (me being me) looked around the web
and there is some free animation software available is you wish to have ago yourself.

I will post link soon

STORY SACK - DR SUESS / ONE FISH TWO FISH

If you don't know what a story sack is,
 it is a basically book in a bag with lots of book related fun for children enclosed.

They make them within schools, on parent days in the UK.
Parents go into school and WITH their child they make one for their class.
(but the parents get extremley competitive about them LOL)


but it's also a great way to spend a rainy day, making the fun items to go inside,
then you have it forever to share when reading your child's favourite book.
They make adrable gifts too.

Here goes...
