These and many more questions have been the continuous soundtrack of my last 24 hours. Six... my five year old nephew came for a sleepover. He asks lots of questions. He is very inquizitive. He also has a fabulous imagination. We did all sorts of craft and then had a great time playing with our creations. There are photos below. Six would say, "can we make a..?" and I would say, "I'm not sure, let's see what we can do with this."
My creative side is quite tired. So is my back. I hope you enjoy looking at the photos and if you have kids in your life, I hope you find some inspiration too.

You thought is was a bird didn't you?! No. It is a Pteradactyl. We are going through our "Dinosaurs are awesome" phase.
