This afternoon I had booked T and S into a free activity at one of the City's museums and learning from past experience I didn't tell them about it until a couple of hours before hand. This is because T moans along the lines of 'mum why do you have to find things for us to do all the time?!' I hoping that when he's older he'll look back and remember these things more fondly! I do appreciate that at 10 he is getting a bit too old for crafty outings such as these but having said all that he did enjoy this afternoon.
Before making the reindeer and card decorations, which you can see G very glamourously modelling above, we had a short talk on WW2. There were original ration books, old magazines, a gas powered iron and even an deactiviated incendiary bomb to look at. I could have spent ages looking at these and wanted to photograph them but unfortunately they got packed away before I was able to have a good nose. We ran out of time and so the reindeer had to come home noseless but I'm sure they'll be something suitable in the button tin.
