Absolutely brilliant - well done both and a big well done for all your young helpers - were there any potential new twisters?

Onto the pictures from Day Four, the children are of different levels but they are all very polite and friendly and you can have a good laugh with them. Charlie who will be in one of the pictures later went up to Colin all innocent on Wed and said, Colin what are you trying to do, I fell about laughing, maybe the highlight of the week, well no not really we have had many and it's been an absolute joy to be here and working with Colin and the children, some fantastic memories.
It took about 45 mins to finish the monster truck under carriage this morning, we have now decided to add some bars to the back after seeing the pictures, so another 30 mins again tomorrow.

We were so busy I forgot to get a picture of the framework for the swing, it was made from plastic conduit that they use for electrical cables, the round type and joined with ali rod and tape on the corners.

Bertie on the way to completion, some of the children cleaning the balloons before they spray it.

This is Charlie who made the comment to Colin, he is hiding under the start of the bi-plane that we are hoping to finish off tomorrow.

Colin built the swing while it took me all day to do the Bertie sculpture and the start of the bi-plane, I'm definately on the slow side.

Just brilliant!!

It's not often (if ever?) I wish back to my schooldays, but if someone had come to my school to show us how to do this, I'd have been much more interested and it wouldn't have taken me all these years to discover how magical, inspirational and uplifting balloon art could be.  I am sure many of the children will be inspired to buy some balloons and take it from there.

Really, really well done and such a great example of your skills and what can be done with 'some balloons'(!)
