CARPET ROLL TUBE TOTEM POLE

After finding a carpet roll tube in a skip we decided that we wanted to make our own totem pole, so we set about drawing and painting it and then with some team work and effort we lugged it up a really big hill to stand it up in all it’s glory overlooking the valleys of South Wales…
(We used normal paint to paint it so made sure it was a sunny day when we headed out, we bought it back home and it now stands proudly as a reminder of our efforts in the corner of the living room)

Here’s how we got on…

Even the littlest members of the family helped carry it!

Once up the top of the hill we did lots of shouting into our tube..

We even had a little sibling rivalry and donking on heads 😉
