I think I have mentioned before that J is just a tad obsessed with Minecraft? We only have the pocket version of the game on my tablet, but he will happily play that and loves to watch the many videos on Youtube. Last week I bought him Minecraft for Dummies, and he has spent a great deal of time reading it, both to himself or to anyone who would listen!
Today we were supposed to be going off to another workshop at the rural college, but J just wasn't in the mood (and refused to get ready!) so we had to bail at the last minute. But we've had some lovely minecraft related stuff going on instead. First, J announced that he wanted to make some posters - well, as he very rarely wants to get creative I leapt into action providing him with paper and paints, and he made two!
The last day or two he's become particularly enamoured with the "slime" character (a cube of green jelly, basically!), so of course that is what he drew.
This is a pet slime in a baby cot, complete with hanging mobile!
He has also requested a slime cuddly - after a bit of surfing I found this inspiration on Pinterest, and have duly ordered some lime green fleece. In the meantime though, I found a bit of green cotton and, with a bit of freezer paper stencilling, knocked up a very simple little cushion, which he was very happy with!
