Now that both of my children are at primary school, I miss those rambly relaxed days when we used to make huts and draw and make things together. Although I don't miss the noise, prams, playgroups and trying in vain to get them to have naps. So I guess you can't have everything.
Last Saturday though, we had a quiet afternoon at home and Arlo drew up some plans for finger puppets he wanted us to make together. He had plans for a dog, bird and lion but in the end we switched the dog for a penguin. You know, just because. It was really fun making these and then I could sit back and relax while they put on a puppet show for me, albeit an offbeat one, considering the unlikely combination of creatures.
