My son wanted to try a different style of art, thus decided to focus on Steampunk art. Steampunk art draws inspiration from the industrial revolution, which started in Great Britain and was more prominent during the Victorian era.
We watched WALL-E, which my son has probably seen fifteen times or so. He commented that WALL- E looked similar to Johnny 5. As soon as the movie finished, he wanted to watch Short Circuit and Short Circuit 2 (of course)
While watching Short Circuit, I randomly blurted out that it would be cool to recreate Johnny 5 out of cardboard.
Living in a flat without a garden can be challenging during this time; however, my son came up with this brilliant idea. He said, “if we cannot play outside, then we can create our indoor beach”. (What a genius idea, so that is what we did).
I have been so eager to share with you this post. Some of you may have guessed where we have been from my last post about our weekend in Birmingham. Yes, we only had gone and booked a relaxed SEN session at Cadbury World Visitor Centre!
The Relaxed SEN sessions are their latest addition, and I am so pleased about this. They offer both morning and afternoon SEN sessions.
Last Sunday, we ventured further out on a road trip to the Ironbridge Gorge Museum. As well as that, The Ironbridge Gorge Museum is situated in the village of Coalbrookdale in Shropshire. Moreover, we were looking forward to visiting the Blists Hill Victorian Town as part of our day out.
The Pelham Talking Alarm LCD Watch is a digital audio watch for people with visual impairments.
The watch has a talking feature in an American female voice. Likewise, the design comes in black and silver, with a black strap.
My partner and I attended The Autism Show in London, on Friday 14th June. On Friday morning, we dropped my son off at school and then headed to the train station to begin our journey to ExCeL, London.
This year, the Cambridge Science Festival celebrated their 25th Anniversary. They also hosted a hands-on at the Guildhall: autism-friendly hour!
On Sunday 10th February, we visited the Natural History Museum, located in London for the Dawnosaurs event. Dawnosaurs is a free event for parent/carers and autistic children aged 5-15.
The half-term holiday is now over, and today we have entered back into the routine of school. During the holidays, we brainstormed ideas and activities to do at home while in lockdown.
Trying to parent, educate and dedicate time to look after one’s wellbeing during lockdown has been a challenge. I have been prioritising my child’s needs yet have moments of forgetting mine.
A recurring theme throughout our blog is art. For us, art allows us to use what motivates and inspires us to create artwork. So what better way to explore different art forms then to set up an art studio at home.
