Cause & Effect

Well the tissue paper only entertained until lunch time but by that time the sun was shining on the back patio so in a bid to keep warm and get some fresh air we headed outside.

Our pool is still set up out and full of water and the kids took to floating various objects in it so rather than discourage them from doing what I knew they were going to do regardless I  thought why not decorate and race some paper boat?  

(*Miss Moos second front tooth fell out this morning*)

Why? Because they sink and go all soggy that's why!

So not to be defeated by my own bad idea I constructed foil one's.
Eat your heart out pirate Pete, Ha har!

I surprised myself with my origami abilities, so my next plan is to make a few fish so the kids can "play fish" with magnets, but I think that's for another day.


  1. What a great idea! I would have just given up and Poss probably would have ended up throwing sticks or dirt in the pool instead!!

  2. Zaylan did get quiet upset over his first boat failing, but the other two kids didn't care but I didn't want that to be the lesson he took away from it so out came the foil, so much more fun with the slight breeze we had to.


Love and kindness is never wasted
