Rain Catchers

This afternoon as one of our crafts is a do a little bit of a time one, the boys wanted to make rain catchers, like they had seen on Cbeebies. I was hoping for a little less rain this summer, but it is Britain!!

This is our interpretation of it, as we couldn't find the information on the website!!!

We took a couple of water bottles and I cut the top third off and we turned it upside down and fitted it in the bottom two thirds of the bottle to use as a funnel.


We then taped the jagged edge at the top with some inexpensive electricians tape (I had a pack in the cupboard)


They then stuck, lots of tape all over the bottles to make them all colourful.

The eldest MiniMad, who I think can be called MaxiMad marked 1 cm lines on a wooden spoon with a permanent marker (I keep these hidden after a very traumatic pen on sofa incident)


They then stuck googly eyes and wool hair on their "weatherman" spoons (31p from Tesco)

The on-going plan is to record the days weather, temperature and water fall in a note book and then use that for some further adding exercises.

Excellent blog! Do you have any helpful hints for
aspiring writers? I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a
paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any recommendations? Thank you!

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added"
checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.

Is there any way you can remove me from that
service? Appreciate it!

Usually Docs give you antivirals to cure yourself from Genital Herpes.
These antivirals do provide minute help. However as soon as you stop consuming them, the HSV virus reappears.

They never eradicate the HSV virus from the
inner systems of the body. Antivirals only suppress these.
Hence why does doctor prescribe them. It is so as this had been done from
a long duration. The business of antivirals is massive
and is in billions pounds. If drugs corporations will
provide you onetime treatment, they would lose a client when you are free from herpes.
Therefore, they want you to come to them regularly and take their things.
Their desire is fulfilled by the antivirals.
Hence, they have no desire in treating your issue, they want their money.
Doctors certain times know that there are few organic treatments also there however since they
get a percent of the selling on their suggestion of antivirals, they keep their mouth
shut and make you suffer from those antivirals. Some people had
done the work to find the natural solutions for Herpes that still exists.
These people have used them to treat their Herpes and then
passed it on to others. And this is the reason such precious solutions are till
now existing. I am putting a link below for you people to find about natural Herpes remedy.
This shall help you. Also pass it on to your friends having Herpes.
