Back to French

I will be teaching French again and I'm loving studying and revising this lovely language. I found this work done by some of my students years ago and it made me smile :)

After School Crafts: Recycled Crayons

I saw this idea a while ago and have been meaning to put it into practice. It worked a treat and it was the perfect half an hour activity for after school. 
You need to snap crayons into small pieces and then place them into an ice cube tray. I asked Ana to combine the colours as she pleased and that single task took her a good 15 minutes. Then we popped them in the oven for about 10 minutes where they melted. Let them cool for 30 minutes or so and voila... recycled crayons in multiple colours.

And now ready to paint.

Nursery teachers

Ana has been doing thank you cards to all her nursery teachers. A very exciting time for her and very emotional time for me as it's the end of an era. Snif, snif

Found 1

A new chariry shop in town has so many goodies that every time I pop in I find it really hard not to part with a couple of bits and bobs. Not useful things, not things I need, just cute objects to look at. I say to myself " Oh, I'll buy it and sell it in e-bay" but once I am at home and look at them I feel really lucky I found them and I don't want to part from them. Do you know the feeling? My hubby, with his monastic, minimalist ways is going mad everytime he sees something new around so now I've started to say that familiar female phrase "We've have that for ages, you just didn't notice before"  I've even  been buying some retro 1950's furniture that I plan to restore one day once baby O decides my arms aren't a second womb.

And there are even more surprises. This cute box was full of these...
