My 7yo was making boats out of straws at school last week. They had a competition to see who could float the most on their straw boats. It was really cool. :)

That’s awesome. It’s so cheap to do with a lot of kids.

I’m glad Shazz. I was very impressed with Isaac’s boat.

One of my children’s favourite things to do is to come up with creations using a few resources. Straws and sticky tape certainly is a fun combination. After seeing toothpicks and marshmallows on a few blogs,I am also keen to try that out.

Marshmallows on sticks… oooo, I’ll have to try that.

Somehow I think we might have to wait to do this one as I can just see Princess sitting there going “I give up!”

It does look good though, is the passenger a dog?

What a fab idea, Kell, you are the MAMA! Did you see the rhino idea from this week’s We Play, I think your older children would love it :)
