The Girl is currently working towards an NVQ Level 2 in Art & Design. This week's homework was to tea stain some paper and use it to create a piece that will go towards their final project. Here is a photograph of her work - shared with her permission :)
In the meantime, my not-quite-so-crafty Boy has been inspired to make mini weaponry after he saw this video on Youtube.

You can get free downloadable .pdf instructions by subscribing to Sonic Dad. There's also a selection of other freebies too.

We had a lot of fun with the glue gun even though we got a couple of singed fingers along the way - keep the aloe vera handy! It proved to be quite tricky in parts and Boykin definitely needed a bit of adult help. He was still very happy with the outcome and has been firing matches all round the house since :/

Hints and tips from Boykin:
Use coloured lolly sticks to save colouring in.
Number your pieces on the template and write the numbers on the lolly sticks too.
Trim the excess glue before it sets too hard.

His verdict - glue guns are amazing!!!!
