1970s Matey Bubble Bath

Matey Bubble Bath Why did Matey have to change the old version of this bubble bath? Fab bottle and it used to make your bath water blue - bring it back!

Recorder

Learning to play the recorder at school. God Save the Queen was the first tune every good Aussie kid learn't to play

Making pom poms, we knew how to have a good time!

Making pom poms - I remember going around our neighbourhood and knocking on people's doors (totally irritating, I imagine) asking if they had any spare wool so I could go home and spend hours making pompoms!

Roller blackboards. My history master was very fond of aiming the wooden duster at pupils who misbehaved.

Roller blackboards and the wheeled ones, our science teacher used to put the kids who didn't behave behind it lol been there a few times myself :) not a very popular teacher i think the whole class would have been behind if he had his way hahaha

I still have several pieces of cutlery like this which belonged to my Gran, it's still in use every day and even survives the dishwasher.  One fork is solid silver, I usually use it for making gravy in the meat tin on the hob!

Australia / Vintage bone-handled cutlery, once found in every Aussie kitchen drawer.

Roller Skates - I had a pair that didn't have the lace up but did have metal clamps that went around the toe! They always slipped off!

Partington - we played on the square at the bottom of the road all summer and when the sun shone we would roller skate to school.

Easy way to incorporate water in the outdoor area. So cool and the children would have a blast.                                                                                                                                                      More

DIY Water Wall

Fun with water, great recycled plastic bottle project. This could be pretty if you used wine bottles. It's just a matter of figuring out how to cut a hole in the side.

In the United Kingdom, Farley's Rusks are a dry biscuit dating from the 1880s, but manufactured by Heinz since 1994. They are usually given to infants, either soaked in milk and mashed up, or in their original hard form as a teething aid. They have a cult following among university students. Study found 100g of Farley's Original Rusks contained more sugar than 100g of chocolate biscuits. (all my sister and brothers had these when they were little)
