Artetc – Architecture 2

We were joined today by 3/4 of the beans as well as Merry and girls for artetc today. After a quick chat for the adults and play for the children we began with Skye and Fran going off with Merry for Biology whilst Helen and I started on the art.

We did two projects today, one being drawing out a street scene, getting them to be a little bit creative with shaping windows I then cut out the windows and doors with a craft knife and strips of coloured tissue paper were applied behind the holes 🙂

Second one was to do some crayon rubbings to get different effects, sketch out a row of buildings and cut blocks of the coloured rubbings to each building. Unfortunately the latter didn’t work terribly well but we had a go.

We finished off with decorating party favour boxes and making fimo key rings and charms to go inside them for SBs, Ps and Ms birthday party this weekend. Merry and the girls left, taking Skye with them so Wayne could pick her up from theirs as they were going to the cinema. Helen stayed on for a bit more fimo-ing and chatting and we had a quick tea together.

Once the Beans had left, Poppy and I took Skipper for a lovely long walk, in the rain! Wayne and Skye arrived home from the cinema and said the film ‘I am Number Four’ was fab 🙂

Sent girls off to bed and they were asleep within minutes!

I caught up on watching Masterchef – loving that its back but sure I’m not too keen on the new selection process – all feels a bit x-factor!
