Making Haysticks with Daddy

Daddy and I made some hay sticks together to use when the wood runs out, to burn on the fire.

We used raffia instead of straw.  We took a bunch of raffia and whilst daddy held one end I twisted and twisted.

Then Daddy had a turn.  We twisted the raffia until it twisted back on itself.  T11 is helping me  hold it strong whist Daddy twists.
