This morning started in the usual Thursday morning way. A bit of breakfast, a bit of TV and a lot of chat and play. Today it was playdoh bakeries and hairdressers.
After enjoying Sushi for lunch we headed to home ed club where today we were learning about the Romans.
Moo made a Gladiator from paper and card.
Beanster started to make an oil lamp, but it soon became a pot for Roman ladies to keep their sewing needles in! Like a clay pin cushion perhaps?
Both girls made mosaic tiles. Beanster’s had a butterfly in the middle and Moo’s was a bit more abstract.
The second stage of the tile making process involved grouting. This Moo did very well. In fact she did most of the grouting between the two girls as Beanster had abandoned the Romans in favour of opening a shop with her friends and selling cards, books, gift cards and other lovely things which they had made. She was very pleased that she made some profit as they managed to sell a lot of their wares to us mummies and daddies! Her little bit of money was spent on the way home but it was a fabulous introduction to the business world for her.
Of course we were then treated to more this evening. Price tickets were created, a float made, pennies counted. Beanster and Moo’s toyshops were open for business for about 2 hours and we were encouraged to spend! Two budding Alan Sugars we have!
