A Holiday Project


My children likes to ask me to do a variety of art projects with them as if I am the commissioned artist for the family.

It's always "Mama, let's do some painting!" or "Mum, can you draw a crane for me so that I can colour it?" or "Mama, let's make a house with 'this'!" I will always indulge them whenever I can and help them with their drawings and whatnots and during the recent school holidays (2 weeks ago) I helped them with the above.

We are quite proud of this little piece of art. It is a picture of a rocket on a planet in space, made with colourful tissue papers.

I'm 'saving' it in this blog just in case we lose this piece of artwork in the future or just in case something happens to it - you know, the normal spilled water, tearing and scribbling 'accident' or whatever that usually occurs when my children are around...

So that I can say to my children - Do you remember boys, when we spent one afternoon in Mama's bedroom, on Mama's bed playing with colourful tissue paper and lots and lots of sticky glue and we made a rocket picture..? We had a great time didn't we?

To which they would reply - We certainly did, Mama...we certainly did...
