Well it's no suprise that i am pretty hands on when it comes to book week costumes & school projects, but i do restrain myself to just 'help' or 'suggest' a practial way to create a volcano, planet or cyclone. My children are quite vocal in the "you've had your turn at school, this is my time to shine" back away from my cardboard type comments . . . but when Red Riding Hood here (chin healing nicely thanks) came to me after lunch today (Sunday) & burst into tears saying "i have to build an ice cave, it's due tomorrow", i did a tad more than just hold her hand & pass her the glue stick.
So, are you a closet primary school project wannabe too?? Can you let your child just take a 2D A1 size cardboard sheet in, or do you make such awesome suggestions - they just have to be put into action & can't be wasted, like smoke/ music/ vibrating parts - i've seen it all & no, have never gone that far?? Has the teacher ever written "well done Johnny, your mother has out done herself this time" on the project?? Can you look your child's teacher in the eye on parent/ teacher interview?? Love Posie
PS i know my children's teachers read my blog, i'm just honest - children do so many creative tasks at school, the teachers know what they are capable of!!
