July for our family is all about the Ag.show and then camping as a family.  During June/July the children work so hard on many creative projects in order to have a good display at the Show.  This year we topped our grand total of number of items on exhibit for our family with 45 items.

 

Joshua:

Working with his hands is not Joshua’s strong point but this year he determined to enter something into the Show.  He worked on this model for a couple of weeks.   Not only did he create a great looking model he learnt lots of skills along the way which he will be able to use in other modeling projects he has planned.

 

Jessica:

Jess was very surprised with how some of her pieces went – she did well.  Here are some of her projects.

The girls spent a couple of afternoons with a friends mum who was visiting town and learnt to make these flowers.  They were disappointed to see that the cake decorating section was for the theme Space – flowers didn’t match that theme.  Jess entered her flower in the any crafted item and was well rewarded!

Naomi:

Between our children, Nomi always completes the most projects and dabbles in a variety of crafts and skills.  She is very creative.

There is a story behind this doll – apparently the judges took this doll out of the ‘competition’ as they considered it not to be made by a 8-12yo.  Though Nomi was very disappointed in not receiving anything for her two dolls (see the other one below), the steward ended up awarding a highly commended and told Nomi the story – that the judge didn’t think it was made by a child.  To Nomi that was an incredible complement!  Since then the co-ordinator has phoned to apologise and to express her hope that it doesn’t deter Nomi from exhibiting next year.  Not on your life! was Nomi’s reply.


Daniel:

Daniel has had his eye on this doll for over a year.  A week before the Ag Show he finally started on it.  He has great control over a sewing machine and is already working an another pirate doll – this time with a hook for a hand and a beard!

Daniel worked for weeks on this boat – it is held together with hot glue and wood staples.  Each day some alteration or addition would be added.  I was pleased that he received a Highly Commended as it showed that they could see it was original and creative work.
