One of the games I'm organising for Christmas Eve is based on Bruce Forsyth's Generation Game when the contestants had to make something with the clock ticking. After a bit of thought I came up with a snow covered wishing well. I've assembled the bottom using biscuits, buttercream and ready roll icing.
And the roofs are drying out. It's just for fun and isn't supposed to look perfect, thank goodness. I'll give everybody the stuff they need and they'll have 2 minutes to assemble it. It's not that hard to do but when you're on a time limit panic can set in so I'm sure I'll get plenty of laughs watching everybody. I'm hoping to have my finished prototype ready to show you all tomorrow. If it works of course.
Thomas' school sent a text this afternoon saying they could wear a Christmas jumper tomorrow if they wanted to. 11th hour information again! It didn't matter because he wouldn't wear anything woolley anyway, even over a t-shirt, but he did want to wear something so I came up with this.
It's surprising what you can do with a bag of pom poms, a green t-shirt and some needle and thread. I knocked the pom poms flying all over the table so the design changed as I sewed them on which is why it looks different, but for a one-day event I think it'll do the trick. I already had the green t-shirt. At the beginning of every school year I buy a red, green and yellow one and these tend to cover any colour themed charity/fun days the school takes part in.
And I think this will be the last catchphrase and riddle I post today. Because you're all so clever and I started doing two of them I've run out! The answers to yesterdays were 'I understand' and 'A clock'.
The ones above are really easy but I thought we could all go out on a superior knowledge high.
