Madness? This is WATER!

The New Ninja Bomber has broken up from school for the Easter Holiday.

I taught him how to make water bombs from sheets of paper yesterday afternoon so that he could amuse himself. It was good to see him honing his motor skills and spatial awareness in their manufacture, and even better to launch the weapons from the gangway that runs between the first floor of The Apprentice Shop and The Coles Shop. We did go down, pick up and bin the remains, but I must admit that we have very indulgent neighbours in Abbey Mills as no one seemed to object. They were, if anything in fact, rather encouraging.

I've pinched an swf file from here to remind you how to construct these origami projectiles. Making a couple certainly bucked me up.
