My boys love to stick, so when our theme was elephants an Elmer collage was the perfect option. I always have a stash of paper squares in our art cupboard, after going waaay overboard for a project once. This obviously kept Daniel's attention for a lot longer than Joshua's, but it was nice to get them both involved. We talked about the different colours and read an Elmer story too.
The boys are staying at their Grandparents' house tonight and I feel like I've lost a limb (or two!) even though they'd be asleep anyway! I think this is the first night ever away from Joshua, and I can probably count on one hand Daniel's sleepovers! I'm half waiting for a call from Mum, but I'm drowning my sorrow in a giant mojito and watching a sci-if mystery on Netflix. The first things I did when we got back to our child free home was clean the kitchen and iron Colin's suit. So rock and roll.
