Saraya made a house and little man named Jack who was played with for most of the day.
We had another cocoon open up - our very first butterfly! She had the most beautiful cocoon, so Saraya had named her Beauty. She watched her for a little while, drew her, then let her go. I tell you, my kitchen is turning into an insect nursery!! (and I'm running out of containers....)
We made these mosaic leaf bracelets as part of our welcome Autumn week.
Make a bracelet shape from masking tape, sticky side out. Collect pretty leaves, snip them up, and stick them on.
Saraya wound up making a whole heap more, including a rose petal anklet for me. Cute!
I had told a sweet friend of mine that we had run out of paint, and she surprised me by bringing over a tub of homemade cornflour paint yesterday (and an oregano seedling which is now at home in the veggie garden!). Thanks so much Petrina, we had fun painting yesterday afternoon.
We discovered loads of new cucumbers maturing on the vine.....
......... and our very first sunflower in bloom! With lots more on their way, yay. :)
And shortly we're having lots of company for lunch, so I'd better go get organised! Happy weekend everyone.
