A rainy day today and the boys settled down to watch Mister Maker this morning.  They were both keen to make the cotton bud skeleton featured on today’s show, and here it is, in progress and complete:

Waif does some rib sticking

If  you are trying this at home, watch out for cotton buds pinging round the room when you are cutting them!  Waif was particularly pleased when one cotton bud tip ended up caught in a spider’s web (ooh, does that give away my lack of housewifely skills?!) and wondered if the spider would be pleased and try to eat it!

For full instructions, you can watch the Mister Maker episode on iPlayer here.
