Death of a mentor

School Holidays are nearly here.

That means that I will need to have a couple of activities to do with the grand daughters.   So I have come up with 2 that I have found on line.  Both require little in the way of resources and I think they shouldn't take longer than an hour or so each.  ( I have included a link to each one.)

This bird is mainly left over yarn.  I think that I will pre-make the feet as they could be a bit tricky.

We have a lot of wooden beads left over from some other activities that we could use here.  This uses a pop-pom maker but I think we will stick to the old 2 rounds of cardboard to make ours.

My pom poms never turn out like the ones in the photo so I will invest in some stick on eyes as well.

And another set of purse clips arrived.  I had forgotten I had ordered these.

Great ideas, I'm sure the girls will love their summer holiday.

I hope so.  My husband and daughter are off to Europe, without me, so It will be good to have the grand daughters visit.
