::: catching the winter sunshine
We decorated it and hung it up on the verandah – very cool!
Amongst a box of goodies we had on hand that day were some old C.D’s and D.V.D’s. As the weather was so beautiful the children were keen to use them to make some suncatchers …
so out came the cordless drill!
While we have put the drill into the hands of our children before it was the first time for these children, so there was a lot of discussion first about how it operates.
Hold it straight – pushing the button this way makes the drill go forward, this way makes it go backwards – it goes very fast -it’s loud – squeezing the trigger with two fingers might be easier – it’s very sharp – it can be dangerous!
And very importantly remember to hold steady the object that you’re drilling!
As the C.D’s were white on one side and reflective on the other …
they were just perfect for decorating with wax crayons.
By threading some string through the holes the children had drilled …
they were able to connect the C.D’s to each other and hang them up to catch the beautiful winter sunshine …
Even our genuine-blue-Nashville-flyswatter-guitar got a jazzing up!
Irresistible suncatchers indeed!
As we mentioned our irresitible genuine-blue-Nashville-flyswatter-guitar came to us
