Here comes the sun or where is the sun thats the question!

Over on Try it on Tuesday we were hoping to celebrate the sun today it being the longest day and all that! I also asked my Niece if she could make something with the sun on it - she is 5 - lets just make the sun then she said! So here is her sunshine and I have to say its a pretty good substitute for the real thing!

It started life as this plain round box - first problem its blue
Rebeccas solution is to cover it in paper - here she is doing mighty fine for her age with those scissors!
Next she needed rays - Grandma to the rescue - bendy straws of course and with the help of the cropodile to make holes and a bit of squishing to get them in hasn't she done a great job? she didn't like the messy bit in the middle where all the straws meet so she then created a false bottom so she could hide things inside - What a girl! So here is the sun from Skipton.
Rebecca will be reading all your comments this week and is quite excited that people on the internet will be looking at her art work so if you have time to leave a comment it will make a little girls day :0)
Do stop by Try it on Tuesday and see what other projects the team have come up with this week.
