This afternoon we invited our parents to come in and help us make our lighthouse models.
We were planning to make them a wee while ago but all the Pringles tubes we had collected had been thrown out when the school was being tidied, so we had to start all over again!!
We made a base for our lighthouse using an old shoebox lid or half of a cereal box. We painted it and covered it with blue tissue paper for the sea. Then we made our lighthouse by covering the crisps tube with white paper and added red or black stripes. We used mod roc to attach the lighthouse to the base by packing it around the base of the lighthouse to make rocks. We added a plastic tub to the top to house the light.
We will be finishing them off by painting the rocks and adding our electrical circuit so our lighthouses have a flashing light. We think we have done a super job, don’t you?
After we had all tidied up we were able to eat the fruit kebabs we had prepared that morning. Our parents really liked them and we think some had more than one!
Thank you to everyone who came.
