We watched the 50th special of Doctor Who and then had a Doctor Who theme party complete with food and decorations! We had sonic pretzels, adipose marshmellows, fish fingers and custard, bananas, tea, home made jammie dodgers, and bow tie pasta dyed red!
Goosey painted an exploding Tardis.
Today the kids made Physic Paper which proved to be a challenge since several types of glue were not sticking to the leather type fabric we had. They did make it work though by using a combination of foam glue and felt glue but it definately was a challenge!
We made a paper Tardis which we printed from here. We didn't have any cardstock so the kids just glued the whole page onto a file folder after we printed it out. Then we made bow ties because bow ties are cool!
Our last project for the week was pom pom Adipose.
And so it begins....we are all big Doctor Who fans over here so we have begun our own Doctor Who 50th Anniversary countdown week!! Since Sun, we have made Fezes, well because fezes are cool. We made them by sewing plastic canvas together and glued a velvety type of material onto it. A fob watch which were parts we pieced together from craft store/beading supplies. The kids also made sonic screwdriver pens by molding clay onto the outside of a pen. River Song Journals were made out of a regular notebook (the kids cut and glued cardboard windows to create the 3D effect before painting the whole journal Tardis blue). Goosey is starting to work on decorations for the party so she painted a Bad Wolf sign. And finally, my project was sewing the kids a Dalek bag so they have a place to put everything they'll be making throughout the week until the actual party that we are hoping to have when we watch the 50th anniversary. The Dalek bag was just sewed together and Goosey made the whisk and plunger out of fabric and attached it to her bag.
We completed week 13 last week of TOG and begun our Victorian Era. We plan on having a Victorian Christmas party at the end of the unit. For now we are just cruising along with the readings from TOG and I have been adding extra Victorian Era stuff. We have been making crafts and working on projects using A Victorian Christmas. Goosey made Jam Biscuits using the recipe from Samantha, the American Girl Doll Cook Book.
