Beados

A couple of weeks ago Sienna was given some Beados as one of her birthday presents. She had always admred Kyla's set, so she was very excited to get her very own. It was a Disney Princess themed kit, and over the course of a weekend, she worked her way through the whole kit, one crown, castle, princess at a time.
Having finished the kit, she declared it necessary to go buy more beados, so she spent some of her birthday money on a new kit, puppy themed :)

Oh I had forgotten the beads. My sons had a real phase with Hama beads a few years back and made loads of stuff. I still find them - usually with limbs missing - occasionally when I tidy out cupboards.

They loved them. So lovely to see them all bent over these tiny moulds with their little fingers so carefully forming figures.

Good god have I fallen behind!!

Isn't that wonderful, watching them so completely absorbed in something? Gorgeous!

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
