Building an engine
April 20, 2015

This weekend was mostly spent getting rid of dead or broken things in the garden and building an engine!

I was allowed to do most of the ‘fixing it together’ bits for the engine, whilst Dylan watched SpongeBob SquarePants (thank you, Dylan)! But he did help out when it came to the testing.

This bank holiday clay modelling session evolved from a thumb-pot, to a dog’s bowl, to a tortoise with a bowl on its back, to a giant tortoise carrying a person on its back!

Homework from school: make a model about goodies and baddies for their display. Sept 2012

D: The baddie [left] looks SCARY and he’s got a spider on him and fangs and big ears and three legs and I’ve drawn a monster on the back.

The goodie’s [right] smiling and I’ve drawn a balloon round the back, and a sweet for me and a sweet for you.

Really crazy golf

Crazy golf sculpture, Aug 2012

D:┬áThat’s the ground [the cotton wool] and that’s the ball [wrapped in black and yellow tape above the cotton wool]. The ball’s got to go ‘weeeeee’ down the feather and into that hole at the end [at the end of the black and yellow tape to the right]. How crazy is THAT?!
