Maya’s String Vase

Back in rainy Sweden πŸ˜‰β˜”οΈ we’ve unpacked, said hello to our animals, and settled in. Each child has already met up with a friend, Richard is back at work, and I’ve had a (failed !) driving theory test and a scout meeting to attend. Yesterday we took the little ones to an indoor play place to get rid of all their energy on a terribly rainy summer day – in short, we’re back to normal again. 😜

However, it doesn’t take Maya long to get crafting….

Using a craft book as a guide, some homemade glue (flour and water), string, and an oddly shaped balloon, she made this…..

  
She blew up the balloon, set it in a glass (to keep it still), dipped the string in the glue mixture, and wound it around the balloon. Then she left it to dry.

We didn’t know what to expect with this oddly shaped balloon. As I predicted the string probably needed more glue, and the top piece broke off easily when dry.

But that didn’t stop Maya from using her imagination….

  
…she made it into a vase….
