Well today I did the next stage of preparation for the Holiday Bible Club crafts with them.
I'd spent Sunday evening watching "Kingdom", and winding little springs from some craft wire. Then today, I mixed up some Plaster of Paris and fixed the springs into the bottles.
Once everything had set - which was fairly quickly in this heat, I put the heads on!
On Day Four of the club, the theme is Christmas, and I thought we should make Kings/Wise Men. I remembered that Steph had found a craft idea for her Sunday School class, a couple of years back, where she made Nodding Solomons [he was definitely a Wise King] using these little bottles. They nod and shake their heads, and are generally very cute!
The original idea came from this site.
So now I have 100 Kings ready to be dressed and decorated by the children. Someone gave me 50 short lengths of gold ribbon recently - cut in half with pinking shears that will give me 100 little crowns for the kids to stick on. One Woman's Trash is truly Another Woman's Treasure.
Emperor Qin Shi Huang had his Terracotta warriors
And the Madwoman of Muxloe has her Benecol Bobbleheads
Like Macbeth, I am definitely suffering from a "heat oppressed brain" today, I feel!
