Kids Have The Best Ideas!

This morning was spent catching up with some much needed housework....
...and  a pile of ironing I had been ignoring for far too long!
This afternoon I booked a night at the Von Trapp Family Lodge in Vermont USA
Being  life long Sound of Music fans Teen One and I especially are looking forward to learning more about the real story behind the film, which promises to be even more interesting!
Hubby has been doing some research for other places of interest whilst in Vermont and a trip to Ben and Jerry's factory looks like a possibility...hope they do sampling!
Our story at Friday Club tonight was the boy Samuel being called by God when he was asleep.
We used  these card cut outs, which are readily available at £1 the children to design some PJ's for Samuel, then used scraps of fur fabric for a pillow and scraps of fabric for his blanket.
It was one of those activities that was very simple to organise and yet the kids were happy to spend ages doing...infact three of the boys wanted to make two and one even glued extra card to make Samuel sit up in bed!
Had I been as clever as him, I would have got the children to bend the cut out shape at the waist and leave the top half unglued...then  Samuel could "sit up" when called by God!
Kids have the best ideas don't they!
