Rain Rain Go Away

I have been trying to pull a million crafting activities out of the bag this week in an attempt to keep my stir-crazy son occupied during the torrential rain we have been experiencing. Not easy as he has the attention span of a duck. So far we have done clay modelling, most of which he ate, painting, stamping, marble-rolling-painting (which he loved and I love because the results are usually quite spectacular with very little effort) and collaging.
Early on in the week I discovered Shrinky-Dinks, a whole childhood too late (for me). Where have I been? And more importantly how much fun have I missed out on? I shrinky-dinked all afternoon with The Noodle, got so excited about showing Boo such fabulousness when she returned home but she was not the least bit impressed "I've already done that at School Mummy". Fine. I made her do it anyway. Watching the curling up of the plastic in the oven is endlessly fascinating.
Maybe I should get out more?
Anyway the rain shows no sign of abating and as arc building is next on the agenda I better put up these photos of our Shrink-plastic artefacts lickety-split.
