Today we did some trench art crafting and made two characters to do with the first world war. Our aim was to make some First World War characters (above picture left), who will be travel bugs that will sit in our cache boxes and get taken by the public around Europe to important sites linked to the First World War.... but then as time wore on we went bananas and made some very creative pieces!
