Space Out

A finished roll of tin foil and a few scraps of paper kept my little dude entertained for... geez, at least 15 minutes. 

Just enough time for us to both space out.

This morning we are heading out to enjoy the sunshine, drink a coffee, walk with Jo and the boys, splash in the rock pool and get our happy on.

 I hope you do the same.


  1. Thanks for popping this classic into my playlist today.
    You can sing along too...

    "And I think it’s gonna be a long long time
    Till touch down brings me round again to find
    I’m not the man they think I am at home
    Oh no no no I’m a rocket man"

    Happy day!

    xx Felicity

  2. Good on yer! Breathe, smile at the sun! Loving the rocket... I am sure my two will get around to one of those this holiday. Today was a T Rex(?!) made from egg boxes and cereal packets and a steam train. Get yer happy on lovely xxLOu xx

  3. that is cool. the empty rolls are always a winner in our house too. have a great day!

  4. I can't wait to get my happy on in the sunshine! Tomorrow, for me. Today, I'm inside an enormous warehouse, freezing. Love this rocket. How fun to have a clever crafty art teacher for a Mum. Kellie xx

  5. Going to the beach sounds like a wonderful idea.
    The rocket is cute.

  6. such fun! love the photos.... and yay! I can now leave comments on your blog :)

  7. Blast off! Love this idea. You are very crafty and clever.
    In true Melbourne fashion the beautiful warm weather we've had this week has turned wintery again so we will spend the next two days in doors. Enjoy the sunshine for all of us! xx

  8. Great idea! I have a cupboard full of cardboard rolls. Good idea for a rainy day x

  9. I've just made some super hero wrist cuffs using carboard rolls for my nephew, my own too cherubs are waaay to cool to be doing that stuff! Too bad, they are missing the fun!

  10. Is that ladybaby already matching her outfits to her brother? Just you wait until she is demanding to wear fairydresses and gumboots everywhere. Nothing better than a homemade rocket, by the way, an egg carton egg holdy bit makes a great and very durable nosecone for those re-entry crashes. melx

  11. Gotta love a rocket, I made a felt rocket cushion, and my son cuddles it in bed every night! :-)Sam

  12. i just love its simplicity! Children can do amazing things with a box and their imagination.


Thanks so much for your words of encouragement, advice and solidarity.
