Over the summer holidays we’ve been doing lots of crafting. We’ve gone through our craft supplies, tidied everything up, and even made Little Sis her own crafting table in her bedroom.

It goes without saying that we’ve had fun with our Lego too. We thought it would be fun to combine our love of crafting with our overflowing boxes of Lego and make a DIY Lego pencil holder.

First we cleared our Lego table then went searching for all our red Duplo bricks. The 5 year old found a smallish base plate and started building a box of Duplo bricks on it.

It was fun and easy so he made another one from green bricks.

Then he decided we should try using Lego bricks. This took a bit longer so he used any coloured bricks he could find. When he had finished building the he went to find some pen and pencils to store inside them.

He took one to his room and gave another to his sister. We keep one downstairs and they are really bright and colourful to look at. This is a fun little activity which helps tidy up supplies and is also a great way to use up spare bricks.

Summer Reading Challenge

We seem to be halfway through the Summer Reading Challenge already. Today Big Brother attended another event at the library, storytelling with Nev the Chef which he really enjoyed. Some of his friends from school were also there and he was pleased to see them. It was great to see him joining in and listening to the story, at one point Little Sis snuck over to sit with him and listen too.
