I love attending Forest School and learning lots of new things. I recently learnt how to make a bow and arrow using branches from the forest. I had a lot of fun doing this and thought I would share the photos with you.
I wanted to make a cake for my big brother as he was turning 18 and he likes Pokemon GO. I thought I would share with you some photos on my blog.
To make the large cake I used 2 chocolate cakes, different sizes and covered them in chocolate frosting and then covered them in coloured icing (red/white/black) making the design of Pokemon Go. For the cupcakes I bought readymade cupcakes and covered in chocolate frosting and then coloured icing using same principal as the large cake.
I have been busy making some really easy Tissue Paper Flowers at home and I thought I would share with you a tutorial to show how easily these are made.
3 different coloured pieces of tissue paper.
Step 1: Cut out 3 squares, one from each colour and all the same size. Step 2: Place the 3 squares on top of each other Step 3: Fold the paper concertina style like a fan. Step 4: Once folded place a pipe cleaner on top in the middle as shown and fold over and secure by twisting pipe cleaner on itself as shown. Step 5: slowly and carefully pull the tissue away from the colour touching and spread out like a flower. Step 6: Repeat this if you wish to make a bouquet of paper flowers.
Today I helped make a doll cake with my mum. My mum helped make the layers of the cake to make the shape of the dress and I made the dress out of icing. We watched a few youtube videos to get an idea of how to do the cakes. We didn't take any photos this time but we might try and do another one again and remember to take photos.
This month I went on a Homeschool History trip to the Oriental Museum in Durham. We had a lot of fun learning about China's past and looking at Museum objects. We even got to take part in a Chinese Dragon Dance. Afterwards we got to do some crafts and I made a Monkey puppet. Here are some photos from the day.
