JUNGLE THEMED BATH

We decided to make bath time a little bit more fun by turning the bathroom into a jungle…
We used real leaves from the garden and a few packets of battery operated fairy lights to hang from the shower curtain rail. We finished with some plastic jungle animals to play with and some green jungle juice shampoo…

It took around 15 minutes to put together…

Here’s how it turned out..

BUSHTUCKER TRIAL / JUNGLE THEMED DAY.

20140311-104016.jpg

We decided to have our own bush tucker trials with tuna filled witchety grubs, meal worms, jungle ants, wallaby willies, fish eyes & kangaroo balls all washed down with a cockroach shakes & piranha shakes. We huddle around a yummy chocolate jungle campfire and embarked on some disgusting bug challenges. At the end we crowned our king of the jungle….

Here’s what we did..

We started the day with a jungle trial breakfast, cockroach smoothie (porridge with chocolate sprinkles) and fish eyeballs (melon balls with a raisin iris and jam juice)

‘How long bug’ the kids put the bugs in their mouths and the winner was the one who kept the bug in for the longest.
