The weather may not be what you call beach friendly, but that is not stopping a horde of Hollywood stars from invading the shores of Weston-super-Mare. 

With legends such as King Kong, Alfred Hitchcock and Scarface all scrambling for the best spot on the seaside, it is set to be the most densely celebrity-populated beach on the Bristol Channel coast.

Batman, Yoda and Pirates of the Caribbean�€™s Jack Sparrow have all come together for the annual Sand Sculpture Festival gracing the beach at Weston-super-Mare in Somerset �€" or at least their sandy clones have.

Sand sculptors are working hard to finish their creations on the beach, all following this year�€™s Hollywood theme.

Other idols featuring in the annual festival include Gollum from Lord of the Rings, the characters from Harry Potter (including the Hogwarts castle) and children�€™s favourites from Toy Story and Ice Age.

 

Since the festival started in 2006, themes have included Fairy Tales, The Continents of the World, Under the Ocean, Great Britain, and The Jungle.

What began with two Dutch sand sculptors building a giant King Kong from 30 tonnes of sand has now turned into a world famous get-together of some of the niftiest hands in sand sculpting.

More than 20 of the world's greatest sculptors from nine different countries are working away using 4,000 tonnes of sand from the beach.

The festival opens to the public on Good Friday and will stay open until the end of September.

Brinquedos pedagógicos reciclados para berçárioVou postar mais algumas dicas para trabalhar com reciclagem de materiais, esta para os professores de maternal e berçário. Esta dica é para fazer seus próprios brinquedos pedagógicos, usando material que você tem em casa. A sugestão aqui proposta tem o objetivo de fortalecer mãos e pulsos, explorar os níveis de habilidades motoras finas e grossas, a concentração, curiosidade de causa e efeito, entre outros benefícios.

Eu amei esta dica acima, feita com latinha de leite e palitos de picolé pintados. Pra fazer basta encapara a latinha com papel. Depois corte fendas na tampa, para encaixar os palitos. Pinte os palitos com tintas coloridas. A ideia do brinquedo é que o bebê retire e empurre as fitas observando suas habilidades.
Vamos ver outras sugestões? Todas usando latinhas de leite em ninho, toddy, nesca…

You could be forgiven for thinking that these incredible images are simply scene grabs from a computer game or film depicting some imaginary and non-existent world.
But these pictures are actually photographs of modern-day cities around the globe that have been manipulated by Russian artist Vladimir Manyuhin.
Manyuhin starts with original snapshots and then adds digital decay and overgrowth to depict what well-known places on earth would look like after an apocalypse. This image from Russian artist Vladimir Manyuhin's Life after the Apocalypse is reminiscent of scenes from the 2007 film I am Legend By night: The same scene of a deserted city - minus some lions - with the sun slowly setting in the background Underground: Manyuhin has transformed a picture of a tube line in to a scene of destructio…
