“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

DIY pumpkin carriage

to be honest, kids' morning telly is not my fave, but it's kinda in the *educational* category, at a stretch. we've been caught out before, and this morning it was another *make your own* demonstration which grabbed M5's attention: he got really excited about making a PUMPKIN CARRIAGE for his fave teddy bears..

"It's easy, Mum, all you do is cut open a lid on the pumpkin and scrape it out, and then my bears can ride in it..."

i often masquerade as a fairy, but sheesh... my magic wand wouldn't work on this one. so we compromised with an icecream container and two cardboard wheels..


and look>>> it f-l-i-e-s !!!!!!!!!

*with a wave of my magic wand, your troubles will soon be gone... with a flick of the wrist and just a flash, you'll land a prince with a ton of cash* (movie line)

Cool! Methinks a real punkin would've been a right royal disaster...and do I get a choccie fish for guessing the movie line?

I'm not sure who looks happier - the boy at his new toy, or the bears at their new ride :)

The ice cream carriage is definitely more durable than the pumpkin version!
