Messy play with honey - sticky and sweet. Can you play without tasting?

Tuesday 22nd September - Home Photo Challenge for Champion House

You all know I volunteer at Champion House and this week is National Art in Care Homes and they have a plan. They want to create a piece of art around “the champion house community”. This includes us Chellow Heights

All they would like is for their friends and family  to send  a picture of “home” it can be a dream home or real, it can be a picture from a magazine or a painting and we shall put them together to create our community

We’d really like you to get involved

This weekend was Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year)

Monday 21st September: Honey Bee For Rosh Hashanah

You will need: 

  1. Paper
    2. A piece of bubble wrap 
    3. Paint in two shades of yellow (just add white to one dish to make it lighter)
    4. A black marker pen
    5. A paint brush
    6. Your thumbs
    7. Baby wipes or paper towels for clean-up

Step 1. You’ll need to paint one side of your bubble wrap with the lighter shade of yellow.

Step 2. Then flip the bubble wrap over and stamp it onto the center of your paper. Press it down evenly, making sure that even the corners make contact with your paper. Pull it up and set your paper aside to dry. 

Step 3. Then dip your thumb into the darker yellow paint and stamp at least two thumbprints on your paper. These thumbprints will be your bees.

Step 4. Once your thumbprints are dry, use your black pen or marker and add black stripes, wings and even a smile if you like to the thumbprints to make them look like little bees crawling on some delicious honeycomb.

Have a buzzing day!
