My next project with the scraps of plywood is to make a "threading" game for the smaller grandchildren who may come here in the summer holiday. In the just in case box is a nice long strong shoelace (just the one - no idea why its not a pair). I will paint the caterpillar with acrylics and then varnish to seal the surface and avoid any splinters.
Its been 10C here all day, with a nasty cold wind, so hiding in my log cabin has been an enjoyable way to spend the day. I did do some spring cleaning first; so I don't feel too guilty.
