Lego cities and Outer Space.
We've not had lego out for ages, so I decided to put some out, the next thing I know we have a complete city out of lego.
Imogen has written a more interesting description of the lego city, on her blog
I suggested to the girls that they could make posters advertising the city. We discussed essential things that would need to go on the posters, e.g. what was there, where it was.
mmm, now let me see, is it stories or storeys?!?
The finished posters, anyone fancy organising a home ed visit there?
I set out the tent for Reuben and Rosanna to play in, I imagined they'd play a nice game of camping, setting up picnics with the play food etc etc.
But no-one wanted to camp. Instead a trip to Outer Space was planned. Reuben's friend came round to play, he'd recently visited the space center, so soon they were making rockets. They each had a banana box, which the covered in tin foil and decorated. P told Reuben that a dog had been sent into space, so they began taking different toy animals with them on their voyages.
A couple of days later the rocket came back out, a quick repair job with tin foil and it was ready for the final details.
Decorating the rocket with go faster buttons and powerful booster functions!
Rosanna added the essential CD player for long distance space journeys.
Now, which CD shall we play?
A pig and Tiger also went into outer space.
This is how I found the telephone! I'm still waiting for a phone call from ET!!
