Cardboard boxes, kitchen foil,
Be very careful not to spoil,
With paint, sticks and sugar paper
Put it all together with a glue scraper.
Useful today for I was given a mission,
So as not to crush my sons ambition,
To the cupboard I rush beneath the pots and pan,
Cos my quest is quite simple – turn him into tin man.
I found a funnel which will do nicely,
Cover in foil, hold with string precisely,
The body was made up of an old box,
The one i keep, if we have to house a fox.
An hour passed and I’m back at the school,
with Tin Man and Jamie smiled, said “cool”,
And now I’m chuffed, my idea was ingenious
He’s lucky his Mum is a creative genius!
Photos of said tin man will follow! 😀
