Little Monkey got a big box of stuff to build things for his birthday. There were paints, glue, tape, and lots of odds and ends out of the recycling box. Yesterday he and Big Monkey started to build a robot. They made a plan and everything ahead of painting. This afternoon Little Monkey added the legs and head-do.

Play doh!

I made some glittery play doh for Baby Monkey. She enjoyed bashing it with the rolling pin and sticking straws into it.

and a Wedding card.

It's a bit late to show these but I made them well in time for Valentine's Day.

Birthday time

On Tuesday Little Monkey had his birthday. He was very excited and had been counting days for at least a couple of weeks. Finally it was here and he got to blow out candles, open his presents and eat cake.

Unsurprisingly he got some Playmobil:

In the Christmas holidays we went to the Island of Arran in Scotland. We took the train which Little Monkey liked a lot although it got a bit long in the end. Four and a half hours are long even on a train.

The Monkeys made soap. They added a soap shape then poured the liquid soap into molds, adding scent and colour. Big Monkey used a snow flake and made the soap for her cousin. Little Monkey made a yellow submarine in an orange soap. This they liked very much. We also did a lot of walking exploring the island when it wasn't raining too hard. This the Monkeys didn't like that much.
