How was Mr H ever going to compete with my genius from yesterday?
This is how.
Not a bad effort today.
He decided a game of Buckaroo was in order. It was quite amusing to watch him attempt to balance the elves on it without it bucking.
In the end I rather smugly (its a horrible trait of mine but what can you do?!) suggested that he leave it in the bucked position like they were riding a bucking bronco. He conceded.
I had this next idea after seeing something similar on Pinterest.
The thought process in my head went something like this....
"wow - I could build an AMAZING tower out of Weetabix (or own brand equivalent - we're not made of money ;) ) It will be massive - the elves can reside on different levels. I can build a mini staircase that they will have used to ascend to the top levels"
What I got was this....
|This photo was taken after the children had eaten the other Weetabix which were left out. I didn't just get one out - honest!|
Its more difficult than you would ever imagine to build even a one storey structure from Weetabix. In the end I gave up and went with them having strewn them across the tray (I'm not silly - Weetabix make a lot of crumbs and I didn't want to have to clear those up!) to give the illusion that the Elves were trying to 'help' set out breakfast.
I challenge you to build a Weetabix tower! Go on - try!
