Dino Jungle

Last weekend I bought Scarlett a big toy dinosaur, that roars (yes, I only have myself to blame) at a second hand toy stall. I told her we'd make it a jungle for it later in the week. By Wednesday, she could not wait any more and brought down the contents of her craft box and said 'right, now we're going to make dino-roar's jungle Mummy!'. So we did. It was excellent fun and required just some paints, tissue paper, pva glue (lots), some glitter and gems. We used the cardboard box our weekly shop of veg came in, which was a perfect size. As different elements dried, we planned the next bit and it took all day, in a very good way! Scarlett was very proud of the result and has been playing with it ever since. This week she wants to make a house, I'd better buy some more pva!
