Sometimes I get bored in the holidays. I mean the first few days are great – you get to sleep in late and don’t have any homework or stuff to do.
Then it gets to when I’ve read and reread all my books and the novelty of sleeping late has worn off. My beans are growing nicely on their own – all I have to do is water them, talk to them and pick them when they are big enough.
I do go play with friends sometimes, but they are not always around – they also have their own things to do and… some of them go away for the holidays.
I spend time with my dog too – take him for walks, brush him and train him. He’s my best friend and I really love him. I always get so sad when people mistreat their animals. Some people even leave them chained up in their yards or go away without bothering to get somebody to look after them. That’s so bad. I would never do that to my dog.
But even after doing all of the above – I still get bored and that’s when it is great to have some fun stuff to do.
Like what Sibo? I hear you asking…
Well – you all know I like recycling stuff – right? So I found a cool way of making a hanging mobile or a hanging curtain (if you’ve got lots of time and patience) using stuff like plastic bottles, bottle tops, corks, beads, buttons, straws and anything else that’s lying around that you can thread on a string.
You might need one of your parental agents to help you with the plastic bottles. You cut them up into shapes, like circles and squares and triangles using scissors – sometimes make the first cut is the hardest and that’s where you need help. You can also put glue on the plastic and sprinkle sand or glitter on the pieces. Then you thread all the stuff on a piece of string, or wool, or fishing line – whatever you have. Make a knot at the bottom. Put something heavyish on first so that it hangs nicely.
Have fun! Send us some pictures if you want to.
