It's a rainy day so we're restricted to indoor activities.
We've done a bit of felt sewing, but it was put aside after the first owl eyeball was stitched.
I'm failing terribly at playing Mario games, don't ask me which ones because I haven't a clue but there was dodgeball and some crazy Mario version of tetris and lots of mini games.
Breakfast was beans on toast. For lunch it was nieces choice, sausage rolls and party pies in the oven. I was hopping I had turned all the correct dials and switches on my sister-in-law's oven to cook them properly because burnt sausage rolls do not equal awesome aunty. It was a tense moment when I opened the oven after nearly forgetting them but they were cooked perfectly so I must have chosen the right settings. *phew*
Then we tried making our own bouncy balls, how cool is that?
To make bouncy balls you need a bouncy ball making kit.
Pour the bouncy crystals into your mould of choice in fancy coloured layers. Put the full mould into a cup or container and fill with enough tap water to cover the crystals.
Leave for 10 minutes and hey presto you have a bouncy ball. Okay, you have a wet bouncy ball that is a bit sticky and needs a little bit of time to dry.
Once it's dried a bit it's much easier to get the other half of the mould off.
Such amazing stuff kids get these days! The girls tested all the bouncy balls they made against the two shop bought normal balls and this pink and purple one they had made themselves was deemed the best for bounce.
We cleaned up the toy table and folded the washing as a surprise for their mum and the girls were just wonderful. After all of that I decided it was time for a cup of tea.
What do yo do on wet days?
