Each year it has become a bit of a game that there is a challenge set at the Retreat, and this year Jan raised the stakes very high.
On Thursday night we were each given a paper bag in which there were 12 different items - fabric, paper clips, pipe cleaners, styrofoam ball, cupcake wrapper, rubber band, feather etc.
We were asked to make something out of them - we had to use 10 of the 12 items; we could add up to 2 other items; we could take additional items from the extras Jan had brought with her. The reveal was at 8am on Saturday, when we had to vote for the winner, and there was a prize.
From the contents it was pretty obvious that you could make up a little doll like structure. But look at what the little inventive minds came up with:
How I feel sometimes LOL!
Clown with an umbrella
Three dainty little ladies...
The winner - difficult to see from the photo, but the two feathery objects are swans.
This was a parachute stuck in a tree,,,
