Rainy sports day

Today was meant to be my sports day but halfway through it started to rain quite a bit. When it started raining it was such a big shame because I was enjoying my sports day. I was competing against local schools for the Olympic Games and I was really looking forward to mummy and daddy racing in the mummy and daddy race, and my sister in the brother and sister race.

The rain was very very very very very bad so we had to go back inside and, because we were all wet, we got sent home early. It wasn’t very bad news because somebody at Kids Bee Happy had sent me something to play with and tell you about on my blog! They had sent me some Magic Sand Painting Packs to share with my sister!

I did a sand picture of a robot, my mum thought it was excellent. This is how you do the sand pictures:

  • First you peel off the part that you want to colour in with the sand and it is sticky underneath
  • Secondly, you get the sand and pour it on the sticky part
  • After that, if you have any spare sand on your work, you pour it into a container and save it
  • You keep going until you have coloured in the whole thing with coloured sand

My little sister had a go too and she did a bunny because there are boy packs and girl packs.

I think this is good for rainy days because all you have to do is sit inside and put sand on your picture and at the very end you get a very beautiful picture which you can put on your wall. I think lots of different children in the world would enjoy doing sand pictures.

Magic Sand Art packs were provided free of charge by Kids Bee Happy for Tom to review on his blog. They can be purchased for £8.99 from this link – each pack contains two A4 pictures to complete, along with 20 sand pens in 13 different colours, a plastic sleeve and hook to display the finished work and a tool for lifting the sections off to reveal the sticky areas beneath.

The Olympic Torch Relay in Bedford

When I got up this morning I felt happy because I was going to Bedford to see the Olympic Torch Relay. I put on an Olympics t-shirt and some sticky glittery tattoos. I am going to keep my tattoos on for lunch! Some of them are on my face.

The weather was disgusting on the way to Bedford, it was chucking it down with rain. We had to walk all the way from the car park in the rain to the torch relay. It took ages for the torch to arrive but while we were waiting I saw some funny things like a man running along with a fake torch and a rubbish truck driving along the road! The police came along and high-fived me and had a photo with me which you can see in the gallery on this blog post.

Before the torch man came along, lots of cars and trucks and motorbikes were in front of it. On three of the trucks there were people dancing and singing and that made me feel a bit nervous and excited because I knew the Olympic torch was very close. A torch relay is a race that you can join in and you have your very own torch to keep but you run with it and pass the flame to another person.

When I finally saw the Olympic torch I was very excited and I saw lots of people running with the person carrying the Olympic torch. You can see it yourself on this exciting video that my Dad took:

Thank you for reading this blog post. Please have a look at the pictures.
