The second rule of snow club...
Day 2 of snow and I suspect the last day. This my second post in the informative series regarding snow (find part 1 here) with more insightful advice about how to survive it.
Faced with a long day stuck in the house with 2 delightful children, it's time to crack open the craft supplies.
I had hoped that making the felted Christmas baubles that I showed you before from Vicky's blog would be a wholesome craft project for me and the kids to enjoy. But really, it's a grown up one that I thoroughly recommend. The kids absolutely loved the wool tops, I think here they were mocking their dad who grew a moustache (not quite as magnificent as these) for Movember.
I do have quite a lot of these lovely wool tops leftover - any suggestions on what to do with them?
So, needing something a little more kid friendly, I recently stocked up at Wilkinsons who have a brilliant supply of branded and own brand cheapo crafting supplies.
This is the second rule of snow club.
2. Do not run out of craft supplies
Other things I try never to run out of in our house are (in no particular order);
1. Red wine
3. Earl Grey tea
5. Washing powder
6. Red pesto
7. *new entry!* craft supplies
I will come back to this list, it doesn't feel complete yet.
I can tell you now that the third rule of snow club is;
3. Snow club should last no longer than 2 days
The novelty will have run out by roughly 5pm day 2. I can see into the future.
