Let the games begin

The Team from Resene ColorShop Napier

Recreate a classic game in an unconventional format using Resene testpots to paint your own dominoes. Smooth rocks, like those found on the beach or in a river bed, work best for this project.

Take the kids out to search for ones that lay flat and are generally round or oblong in shape. If you don’t live near water, you should be able to get some from your local garden supply store.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.

Find out how to create your own rock domino set.

Wild apple trees

Robert from Poraiti

Hi I am starting a project of trying to protect wild seedling apple trees or ones that may be growing that don’t get any attention and trying to protect our heritage varieties around the Hawke’s bay. If anyone knows of any apple trees that they have been found on walks or farms or properties or old orchards that are neglected that could be grafted and helped to keep going. Please I would really like to know and try to protect these. I would appreciate any help. And if you could pass on to friends and others around our district that would be great. Thanks lots.
