My playroom meets it’s (Mister) Maker
October 11, 2011 § 3 Comments
Mister Maker. The secret lovechild of Tony Hart and Janet Ellis, conceived during Hart’s black period and when Ellis had been taking too much acid. Currently much-loved by my 4yo, being the CBeebies champion of all things arts and crafts.
4yo is really reluctant to write and draw, yet shows a passion for craft activities. So in a bid to encourage him to stop following me around the house talking at me, and involve himself in more self-directed play, I decided to create a ‘craft area’ at home. The council collected an old sofa that had been taking up most of the playroom, I bought some overpriced storage units, and filled them with stuff, so the kids can indulge their creative sides, whenever they feel like it.
The only problem was when 2yo decided to wholeheartedly embrace his creative side. Below is what happens when crafting goes bad. Mister Maker, the bill for the carpet cleaning is in the post.
