Apart from going back to school, September isn't a month with a specific event to build a theme around so we took the opportunity to go wild. This month's box is all about Wild Animals... monkeys, lions, giraffes, elephants and erm... mice.
The box has all that's needed to create these cheeky monkey masks in the snap above.
We have a beautiful hand drawn 'Lion, King of the African Plains' handy flip flap (!). Ah yes, what on earth is that? Did you ever as a kid, take a square of paper and fold it several times to make a 'fortune teller'. Do you remember? 'Pick a colour', 'Pick a number'. Then, 'You smell' or 'You're lucky'.
Our lion is like that, except you can colour him in perhaps and learn a little origami folding.
We managed to fit a rather tall papier mache giraffe into the box to be decorated with paints and decoupage. Then cuts of fabric with lots of different shaped sequins to make an elephant fit for a parade - and what elephant wouldn't forget his friends? In went some card, string and instructions to make some friendly mice.
My little foxes have made these before and really enjoyed having another go.
It went like this;
Them, "Mum, can we make one?"
Me, "You can decorate an elephant after you've done some reading, OK?"
Them, "OK mum."
