Second Week of Advent – Wednesday

Possum is 5 years 7 months

Bandicoot is 3 years 5 months

Little Princess is 11 months

 

This is what we found in the Countdown to Christmas Box this morning.  Bandicoot wanted to eat the lollies, so it was a bit tricky convincing him that they were magic lollies and it would be better to let them do their stuff.  We got there in the end.

Firstly we planted the tiny lollies in the cotton wool in the pots, then we placed them on the window-sill were they could get some sunlight (assuming there was a break in the rain).  Finally they were sprinkled with ***magic growing dust*** (teeny-tiny, itty-bitty star shaped foil glitter).

Then we waited.

And waited.

Poor Bandicoot!  His patience levels are even lower than those of his mother!  Several times during the day he checked the pots to see if there had been a change yet.  I am glad we ended up having such a busy day out of the house because I don’t think he would have coped otherwise.

I have suggested that perhaps they require moonlight as well as sunlight for the magic to really work.  We will have to see what happens in the morning…
