Day #45 Racing Rockets!

Bonfire night certainly went off with a bang yesterday!! We sat at our living room window with the lights turned off and watched the sparkly, fiery rockets launching into the sky and exploding in a shower of twinkly lights.

For today’s activity I thought that Boo might like to kick off his socks and get his feet all painty…..rockets away!

What You’ll Need

  • Card
  • Paint – we used Crayola washable
  • Collage materials – crepe paper, shiny paper – whatever you have in!


Picture 007

We used the same method as we did in ‘Butterfly Baby’ and prepared our paint sponge ready to make some foot prints.

Picture 003

Boo put his foot on the sponge and immediately got the giggles…..’Cold Mummy!’ ‘Squish, Squish!’

We placed his foot onto the piece of card and voila!

Painty perfection!

Now with a little bit of ‘Mummy collage’ – with Boo as chief gluer – we give you……

‘Racing Rockets!’
