VOLCANIC FUN IN THE HOT HOT SUN.

Ok so the events I am writing about here did not happen this week.
I can see dear readers that your eyes are not to be 
covered by wool today!
However in the brief day long summer we had recently a new organisation was born.
Affiliated to but independent of the Ninja Knitters.
The Woody Ninjas..
Year 5 at the Ginger one's school are studying what one of the boys spiritedly described to me as
 "NATURAL DISASTERS!".
I don't know what they are really studying but 
NATURAL DISASTERS! 
seems a perfectly fine topic to me.
I would want to go to a school that studied 
NATURAL DISASTERS!,
 but only if they did how to evade a killer zombie attack in P.E and how to make your own 
radioactive spider in science.
Anyway, I digress, the point is under the heading of NATURAL DISASTERS! comes Volcanos.
And Volcanos are a very close friend of FIRE!
A gem of an idea started to form in Ninja One's little old walnut, and so The Woody Ninjas were born.

You can see the amazing effort those mini Ninjas put in to their project at the 
Ninja Knitter's Fire Blanket yarn bomb extravaganza this weekend.
I love working with these kids, this is the 3rd project we have done this year. Its been a privilege to work with them and see them develop their skills and reasoning. I've had so much fun working with them and the teachers who amazingly are never fazed when I come up with ever more bonkers ideas of what the children should be doing.
Last week they were designing Woody Ninja logos as their home learning.

This week they have been yarn bombing the school to advertise Saturdays event.

I hope they were stealthy, I hope they were disguised and I hope they didn't get caught!
and I really hope that when the public see their work of art they will appreciate just how much effort 
those Woody Ninjas put in to it.





And if they don't, well I suspect we are going to have a lot of the Woody Ninjas with us on the big day so they can demonstrate their awesomeness themselves.
Well that is if you can spot them, their disguises will be strong and they will blend seamlessly in to the crowd.
Can you tell we are all getting a bit excited?
I've got some more amazing things on the Ninja front to show you, but that will have to wait till tomorrow.

  3. Wotcha Nora, just thought I'd pop by and say hello as I haven't been over this way for a bit! It lifts your spirits to see Ninja's in school uniform, especially when they are also a bit interested in volcano's. We are surrounded by volcanoes here... in fact I had my lunch on one just the other day. I love them!
