“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

mum, let's make a grass skirt. all we need is plastic grass.



that FINGERTIPS programme has a *lot* to answer for. it's on morning telly, and M4 and S8 watch it avidly whenever they can twist my arm up behind my back to turn it on. from dinosaur rubbish bins.. to interior designing with your own painty-footprints.. to grass skirts, you can make anything.
er, right.

well, we didn't have a stash of "plastic grass" just lion around yesterday morning, so we had to steal some of D16's newspaper delivery extras.. and created our own kiwi-style-dancin-costume, which got worn all day.. to ten pin bowling, to the sister's birthday party at the park, and nearly to bed. it's on again bright and early this morning.

easy peasy:
we just lay about 5 sheets of newspaper in a stack, then cut the paper into strips, starting at the bottom, leaving about two inches at the top (uncut) to make the waistband. then we ran sticky tape around the waist and shimmied it all on !!!!
happy twirling :o)
