Australia Day

We've had cousins here for 24 hours and I needed an activity! So today I got the older kids to paint the Australian flag - they had a ball. First we used candle wax to cover the white parts and then a wash of blue finishing up with a bold red on top for the red stripes.

Quite unusual for him - Timothy decided to jump in for the photograph!
I cropped him almost out of the one below.... he was pant-less and looking away LOL
