Beach, table, caravan (eventually)

A person I follow on Facebook posted a photo of a very simple activity that I could do with the kids over the weekend.
The Mr needed the car to go to study at a friend’s house so we had to go to the beach to pick up some resources…. So off we went, kids, dogs and I.



The time we got back in the car, am time.


Luckily the tide was on the way out but it was raining so the Frenchies weren’t too keen on walking far.

At home, the stones were washed and dried. We put acrylic paint in the palette, covered the table cloth with paper.
I haven’t painted anything since before boy child was born 7 and a half years ago so all my small acrylic paint rubes were dried out. Luckily we had the big tubes still.










It was fab doing these together. The scenarios that were being shared were so funny!

The plan for these is to take them to decorate the ground around the holiday caravan.

Feeling all productive we tidied up and made the cinnamon pull apart bread which I will link when on netbook.
