This week it's time to look at what my boys and husband have been crafting.
My husband is at home all this week. He has a few days off in return for having worked so many extra hours over the last couple of months. He has really been enjoying spending the extra time with the boys. At the start of the week they came home with an Airfix model soldier kit. There was great excitement all round.
I'm sure I've already said how much my husband loves Military history, especially World War 2, so this was as much for him as the boys.
The first few soldiers were painted by daddy. He had to show the boys what to do of course :0)
Then James and Calum were both able to try out their painting skills.
They are now totally hooked on Airfix models and have been searching online for their next purchases. James has had the idea that they will make up a sort of timeline of soldiers through time including Romans, Knights etc. Calum is very keen to try building one of the Land Rover models.
When my husband saw me taking the photos above he said I had to have a photo of all the infantry lined up behind their Captain.
And then I had to get a close up of the Captain.
From both sides.
I can see these little men taking over my life in the months ahead! It's so nice to see the boys taking such care over painting the little figures.
As for last week's project:
I got the scarf and brooch finished.
I made a slightly different flower brooch to the one I made for my mum's scarf.
This one I made up all by myself!
