DD just e-mailed me as she remembered she has to make a model of a plant root hair cell for Monday.
Had a quick look at what one looks like but how the buggery do I create vacuoles and cytoplasm etc?

Why is this your problem? It's her homework and presumably she is older than 10 so why do you have to create anything at all?!

Isla - check out Pinterest for ideas with loo rolls, how ever I am also with faux, this is your DD's assignment so surely "you" don't need to create anything, she does?

i came here all excited to say you can make owls with loo rolls.

I've been brought here under false pretensions.

Wish your DD all the very best in her efforts to do her homework. put kisses on the end and everything.

pretences not pretensions.

Tell me more about the owls! And yy to OP's daughter doing own homework.

This is standard Y7 homework! Cake/clay versions have been popular here.

I dont understand why everyone is get "up tight just because a grown up is offering to find out information to help the child complete a project. The child is clearly stuck and has asked for help! And finally there is a parent or gurdian who still wants to be invloved, takes a interest and more importantly takes time out to help the child learn and develope! I wish her luck with her project. I am a mum who has just painted 90 toliet rolls 4 times each as my daughter and i are make a muriel with them. I also have a huge bag of extra toliet rolls to make many more different things with my kids.
