The little newborn chicken is in the top left photo - trying hard not to get run over by it's brother & sister who are still drying out. The little chicken in the bottom right is my favourite, I took her over to my room earlier today to show the kids - they were surprisingly gentle. I decided to name her "Brooke" get it? Brook brook! The girls at work said I'm clucky! She was so cute and even fell asleep on my bump while I was sitting with her - Raylene from Toddlers said "Brooke" probably thought I was a mother hen!
As for the Olympic Torch - here's what I helped my children make:You need 1/2 a paper towel roll, masking tape, small plastic dessert cup, strips of celophane. All I did was fold the celophane in half and attach it inside the cup with tape. The cup is attached to the roll with vertical strips of tape, then tape is wound around the top of the cup and the paper towel roll for reinforcement. They held up really well while the children ran and walked with them for the "Opening Ceremony" of our Mini Olympics!
