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.
Its been a long time since I updated on here! We have had a whirlwind of the past couple of weeks! Rosey's birthday came around and she wanted a Doctor Who Tardis cake. At first I was planning to lay it flat but then the kids challenged me to make it standing so I did my best! I just cut the cake into square pieces and then stacked them. I had to stablize the cake because it was leaning as I was adding on the layers so I just inserted quite a few skweer sticks. I used a regular whipped cream frosting tinted blue.
We trekked along with school and continued our studies of the British Isles with Scotland. We watched The Water Horse Legends of the Deep and in researching found the Clootie Well which was very interesting to read about! Goosey decided to do her postcard on that! We made a quick stop in Ireland as well and watched the Secret of Roan Inish!
Last week we had a storm come thru which knocked our internet out for 5 days so that made things a little more difficult as far as the kids being able to research online but at the same time we ended up getting so much done around the house (especially me!!). We did miss our Doctor Who marathon nights since we weren't able to access Netflix but we had some awesome board game nights with Ticket to Ride and Pandemic. I think we are all in agreement that we are going to make at least one day and night electronic free!
