Kitchen Bench Design Challenge!

While Paul was making a stir-fry for dinner tonight, Jules and I set ourselves a little challenge: to make as many things as we could think of from scraps and found objects on the kitchen bench...

We found some spring onion scraps, carrot tops, a lolly stick, two rubber bands and a necklace made at the school holiday club, which all seemed pretty useful for making a basic punky character.

A few more spring-onion stalks made the face into a stick person.

Next up, Jules made a bird - I love it!

Then I made a scene of grass, sunshine and a butterfly.

Jules made a mini-caterpillar.

I tried my hand at a wheelie vehicle but wasn't too happy with it.

Then as I started to lay the table for dinner Jules started working on another creation.

hmm, let's bring in a found post-it note.

Et voila! A hatted guy! I l smiled for ages when I saw this. This little guy has so much character, doesn't he? xxx
