Shiny!!!!

Well, the weather outside is frightful, as the song goes, so I wanted something to do with the boys this afternoon.

I'd seen something on t'interwebs about glittery dinosaur ornaments, and that seemed like a fun thing to do, so I nipped out to the shops this morning to buy some cheap plastic dinos and got to work

Of course the kids didn't help at all because the X-Box was singing its siren song, but I enjoyed myself anyway :D

Step one, slather the dino with PVA glue:


Step two, dunk with glitter:


Step three, rewind, and realise that it would have been easier to screw the eye hook in first so that I had something to hold:


Rinse and repeat until you have three super sparkly prehistoric buddies:


And hang in tree:

Rex
Steggy
and Pterry
This is most likely my last blog post before the big day, so Happy Christmas everyone!
