I honestly could not think of anything to do for the Unplug your kids "OLD" challenge . I wracked my brain for days and even though words like this are very open ended I could not think of anything except carving apples and leaving them to dry to shrivel - but I didn't have the time for that or the apples (kids ate them all) so I was tempted not to participate in this weeks challenge.
Then last minute inspiration :)
Grandma's Birthday Lunch at our house - That's old isn't it??? Well I can't be that mean as my mum is still in her 40's!!! but she is still old to her granddaughters ;)
But here is my real old entry -
I had planned for our family to celebrate Winter Solstice (around 21st June in Australia) see previous blog here for family solstice ideas and thought well isn't that old?? It's been celebrated for thousands of years.
So here are a few things we did
Hammered nails into a tin can to make a lantern. I held the can with my legs and nail with my fingers - the girls did good not to hurt me too much
And made Plastic Cup Candle Holders!
Finished products - Handprint Sun and Outer Space drawing
Our Fireplace - not common where I live, so we are lucky to have one
