A few weeks back J came home with a set of instructions for how to create his very own Viking ship, the deadline was officially meant to be this Friday just gone but his teacher very kindly extended this until Tuesday which allowed us an extra weekend to put a little more effort into our endeavours.
I have to say having looked at the design ideas, I wasn’t really fancying building a boat. I’m quite the crafty type but making a Viking ship seemed a little beyond my ability, thus I left it up to the Dad ‘n’ Lad team to sort out.
I found, ordered and paid for a suitable outfit for J to wear for his ‘Viking Day’. I also supervised and assisted with the paperwork regarding his designs for his ship, and that in my eyes is enough of a contribution to his crafty work.
J and Paul sat for almost six hours yesterday cutting, colouring, painting and putting together what has turned out to be rather an impressive vessel. Whether the boys’ cardboard creation floats, I’m not entirely sure but fingers crossed it’ll be plain sailing and there will be no sinking hopes… or ships for that matter.
As always, thanks for reading. I look forward to catching up with your #TheOrdinaryMoments posts either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
