Every Saturday I have to come up with ‘something new’ to do with my son. He’s five, a little on the hyperactive side and gets bored easily.
My wife takes our daughter (8) and baby (15 months) into town to go shopping and visit the library – but Jaden needs a bit more attention than that.
Normally we’ll watch a little TV, go on the computer, read, play games, make puzzles, draw pictures, go for a walk and when the weather is nice we’ll spend a couple of hours in the park.
But thanks to James May I’ve now got something else to do with him today. Watch this…
I’m a BIG fan of James May’s top toys series – in fact one of my favourite televisual moment was when he brought a model train at an auction in front of ‘enthusiasts’ and threw the box away – priceless.
This means he will have to make thousands of plasticine flowers – not an easy task. The making isn’t that difficult, in fact its a lot of fun – but the area he’s calling for help is the inspiration.
He wants people to e-mail him with their suggestions or to post a video response on YouTube with instructions for making your flower design – that is what I’ll be doing with my son this afternoon.
Now to dig out the plasticine.
