Clown eggs (WOYWW)

Well it is Wednesday and time to show my desk again as part of WOYWW.  This time it is occupied by some of Alex’s crafting.  School is holding an ‘Eggstravaganza’ in which the kids have to decorate eggs and present them and the theme is circus.  Alex has made his two clown eggs, and is currently decorating the circus ring to put them on.  The stickers are there, ready for the edge of the circus ring, and he has coloured in the rings.  The little green holders were cut out of an egg box and help support the eggs.  My mug of tea is missing to prevent accidents!

Here is a close up of his creation!

It is his birthday soon and he has asked for everything Spy for his presents, so I have made him a card that also fits the bill.  I photoshopped his head onto a spy child body placed it onto the James Bond background.  Not sure how clear it is in this photo, but I am hopeful that he will like it.  Anyway, that is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone.

Oh Caro, that birthday card is the BEST. Alex is such a lucky child, and very artistic, too. What fun he'll have showing off his circus, and even more fun when his secret spy birthday rolls round.

Hiya Caro, hope life is treating you well. I love the extravaganza idea - would love to do that with the kids at work, and the Circus theme is a bit different! No activities this year as we are closed for refurb, I shall have to try and remember that one! The spy card is adorable, Alex will love it! Happy WOYWW Cindy #72
