Mice bowl


Bol souris
For my daughter (her nickname is “the mouse”).

A mouse needs to be green (like the french song) but mine was dry.
Unfortunately it was difficult to paint with the blue.

Little story : this bowl is the 2nd, my daughter crashed the first one (phew, that wasn’t my fault…).

We took children to the bowling and went back home for pizzas.

One year too late : I had to put the 11th candy onto the bowling ball.

The hardest was to cut 10 skittle in the cake.
Fortunately there were 10 children.
