Afternoon tea at Drink Shop Do

This afternoon we headed into London to attend the launch of the Go Create Eco Craft kits at Drink, Shop & Do in Kings Cross. First of all we explored Kings Cross as the area seems to change every time we emerge from the station. On today’s visit we found this fun swing inside a bird cage.

IMG_5889We soon found Drink, Shop & Do and settled down to try out the new craft kits. The Go Create Eco Craft kits are available in Tesco’s at an amazing price of only £3.50. They contain everything you need to make a fun craft with a little help from your own recycling box! There are 16 craft kits which include Rocket Bottle Jet Pack, Snack Pot Robots, Egg Box Bug Garden, Snack Pot Princess Desk Tidy and more.


We had fun with the Egg Box Bug Garden and you can see Little Sis getting stuck in to the painting. We were rewarded with a delicious afternoon tea of finger sandwiches, tea and yummy cake.


A pretty perfect afternoon for us :)

Our last crafty morning

Today was our last session at The Creation Station. We’ve really enjoyed our crafty sessions and Big Brother has made some amazing things. This morning he made a copy of himself. I drew around him on a large sheet of paper.


Then he decorated himself with paint and paper.

I think this might have been his favourite activity. He had a large area to work on and enjoyed adding feature such as eyes, a mouth and even his knees!

Oh help, oh no, it’s a Gruffalo!

This morning we visited the library for story time. Both children are now taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge so we have to allow ourselves extra time to get our BookStart Bear passports stamped and collect stickers for the Reading Challenge!

Today’s story was The Gruffalo and so we had Gruffalo masks to decorate. Big Brother correctly pointed out that we had made these before (he has a really good memory for his age!). They still had lots of fun with them.
