Lara has been home from school today. Her school was closed for the day due to the teacher's strikes.
Yesterday I bought her a few more bags of Hama Beads to top up the some what depleted box we have. She spent a good part of yesterday evening and this morning creating small square pictures which she mounted in a 9 x 9 panel onto some of my Black Bazzill card stock (reinforced with mount board) to make a really cute, colourful picture which she intends hanging on her bedroom wall.
It kept her quiet for several hours and she was really thrilled with the finished picture.
