So I left DadaSmu to educate the children. Here's what happened.
Firstly they watched this YouTube video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=YgT8I2uxJ6o
They then started work - on the dining room table!
They all did a magnificent job, learning and using important skills. The end result is four of these.
I will admit that they are rather magnificent. So as well as measuring, sawing and safety skills, they also went on to use combat, ambush and strategy skills. They worked out that the perfect angle for firing their darts the furthest distance was 20 degrees. They also learned that shooting Mummy or the baby is never a good idea! They built forts with arrow slits and low walls with escape routes. All in all, I think a lot of fun was had by all those involved.
