Last Thursday I picked up my youngest daughter from school and we headed straight to the museum – Te Papa – in Wellington. The museum is open late on a Thursday night and she’d been asking to go for a few weeks, so I finally made it happen. I used to spend so much time there with my older two children, when they were pre-schoolers, and it is always a place of inspiration.
Our favourite mother and daughter moment was on Level 5, in the art gallery, where we took the time to draw one another’s portrait! Much fun!
At the museum, we bought some stretchy putty to make, which Alice (age 5) and her older sister, Sophie (age 9), enjoyed playing with immensely!
Alice has also had fun being creative with play dough this week…
Meanwhile, our oldest daughter, Charlotte, has turned 12 and has been decorating her bedroom with her drawings!
She was excited to bring home her first laser cutting pieces too (something she’s going to be doing lots of in Term 3 of this school year).
This artwork she’d created at school is cool too – using lino and ink (here’s a useful print out with instructions, ‘Roll ink onto lino board – printmaking‘ – if you’d like to have a go!). In school she had to choose a well know person’s portrait to put into art. She choose Rebecca Robeson (of Robeson Design), who is someone she admires for her interior design work.
Finally, there’s been some lovely piano practice happening from our Sophie (she started lessons this term).
