Beasties & Bugs - Part 3

This weekend me and Jack had some fun with collage!

The Art & Design part of Jack's creative homework was to make a 3D model of a bug in the style of Eric Carle (American designer, illustrator, and writer most famous for The Very Hungry Caterpillar).

We used egg boxes, tissue paper, and pipe cleaners to create two caterpillars - one in the same colours as the infamous Very Hungry Caterpillar, and one in Jack's favourite colours - and a spider inspired by The Very Busy Spider which Jack LOVES.

Jack had a great time shredding the tissue paper and gluing it to his critter creations.

Today we took all the Beasties & Bugs projects into school. Jack got two Smiley Faces straight away (he can only earn 5 in a week so this is a big deal) and also got to take it to show the Headmistress (who Jack adores) and came away with a very shiny sticker award. He is a very proud and pleased young man today!

Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.

Recipe: Pigsty Pie

This is one that we made up, although we are far from the first or only people to make a pie using pork or pork mince and call it a Pigsty Pie. So let's just say that this is our version of it. It smells great and reminds me of stuffing at Christmas, making it feel much more "naughty" than it is! This serves four people and it a nice 9 points per serving. You will need these for the mash: 400g potatoes 400g sweet potatoes 4-5 good sized carrots Salt Pepper Nutmeg Simply chop the roots, boil in salted water until tender, and mash! Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. The pie filling: 10 sprays low fat cooking spray (e.g. 1 cal) 1/2 lb lean pork mince 2 onions, finely chopped 3 apples, diced 1 leek, chopped 5-6 big mushrooms 2 tbs plain flour 1 tsp sage 1 tsp parsley Salt Pepper 1 vegetable stock cube 1/2 hot water 2 tsp English mustard Fry the onions in the cooking spray until they start to soften, add the mince. Once the meat starts to colour add the apple, leek and mush
