starting to pick calendula for our bear rub cream Making shadow art. This is the perfect lazy art. You need a piece of coloured sugar paper (the cheaper the better) and a sunny window sill.
Place some, preferably solid, objects around the paper and leave them completely alone for at least a whole day.
When you remove the objects the sun has faded the rest of the paper and abracadabra you have the object's shadows. The whistle one was interesting because although you can't see it in the picture it also left a yellow tinge.
We've had time to play with our food.
...make birds in cages complete with food bowls in the bottom (this is the shopping basket from under the toy pram cunningly converted with tin foil).
