Duck Tape R2D2 container

Big Brother is really enjoying his Star Wars crafts at the moment. Our Duck Tape collection is getting a little out of hand so we came up with a craft to use some up – and made a Duck Tape R2D2 container.

We used:
Duck Tape in blue, white, silver and orange
empty cotton buds container
a piece of paper
sticky dots

The first step was to cover the bottom half of the container with the white Duck Tape. We wanted to add some detail so cut some small pieces of the blue and silver Duck Tape and added them to a piece of paper. This made it much easier to cut the small pieces we needed than trying to cut the Duck Tape.

We applied these small pieces to the base of our container with sticky dots.

The top of the container is clear so we added a few more pieces of the silver Duck Tape to the top along with an orange button (the only colour we don’t have is red!).

This is a cute sized pot, perfect for storing Star Wars abatons!

Big Brother gets invested

Big Brother has been going along to Beavers for a couple of weeks and tonight he was invested. This meant he has the uniform and was given his scarf and plastic woggle, as well as his first badges, and made his Promise in front of his group.


We were able to watch and were so proud of him, especially Little Sis!

A Big Day Out

Today Little Sis was invited to a birthday party and it was Dad’s turn to go, which meant Mum and Big Brother had the day to themselves. I really wanted to go to the Liberty in Fashion exhibition at the Fashion & Textile Museum so we headed into town for a day out. The tube was really quick so, with time to spare until the exhibition opened, we made a little detour onto the DLR at Canning Town.


We took it all the way to Bank.


Then made our way back to London Bridge to walk to the Fashion & Textile Museum.


The exhibition was amazing but I think Big Brother was pretty tired as all he wanted to do was sit down!


He was very patient and let me read all the exhibition labels and take lots of photographs of all the amazing dresses. He was rewarded with a delicious hot chocolate in the museum cafe.


We also had a lovely lunch before heading home via Victoria so Mum could pop into HEMA.Big Brother was very patient whilst I looked around and popped a few things in my shopping basket. Then it really was time to go home, via South Ken.


And a chance to the Piccadilly Line.


Before we forgot to change at Acton Town and had a little detour to South Ealing and back!
