Next we measure each piece of fabric and draw up all our bags templates, in different sizes. We do this to make sure we get the most out of the fabric.
Then we organise and match the available colours of the exterior and the interiors of the bags before we cut anything out. This is this is to make sure we have exact pairs, and minimal waste.
Teaching kiddos one-to-one correspondence can sometimes tricky and frustrating for both the kid and adult.
We did this activity with loose Duplo blocks, home made flash cards with numbers (in numbers and mandarin characters). Placed cards faced down and got the little trooper to turn 1 over and stack the blocks to match the number, counting as he stacked them up (一到十). We stacked them up separately and when we were done with all 10 numbers, we placed them in sequence on a base board. Little J was surprised to see that if we added 1 onto the previous stack, it became the next number!
I love how we incorporated numbers, colours, height and fine motor skills into a simple activity of building! #numbers #colours #tallshort #highlow #4yearolds

🌍 Oslo, Norway
📃 Havnelageret (also known as Oslo Havnelager) is a commercial building located at Langkaia 1 in Oslo, Norway. The building houses Norwegian Defence Estates Agency as tenants. The Norwegian Intelligence Service also has its source archive (kildearkivet) there.
The building was erected in the period 1916-20 and designed by architect Bredo Henrik Berntsen. Havnelageret was dedicated to the huge development of ship transport during and after the First World War. The construction of the building was challenging and extremely difficult with contemporary technology, and with rising prices and wages during the First World War, all calculations were surpassed. From the original amount of 3.2 million Norwegian kroner, the final cost ended up at 9.3 million kroner. .
Construction of Havnelageret was very complicated because the building had to be built on bedrock as a result of its large size. This bedrock lay 20 meters below ground level. The difficult base conditions delayed the construction process, but in 1920, Havnelageret was finally based on the 130 pillars, which laid on 1550 piles in total. When finished, the building was so substantial that the 4th floor of Havnelageret was used as an air-raid shelter during the Second World War. The building has an outside surface of concrete. When Havnelageret was completed in 1921, it was the largest concrete building in Europe and the largest building in the Nordic countries. The building had 11 floors, a tower and an area of 39 708 m² in its original form. The external dimensions were reduced by dividing up the facade with crane hunts, rises and towers. When it comes to style, the building can be placed into the group of Nordic Neo-Baroque with classical elements and details of Art Nouveau feel. In 1965 the building was awarded the Betongtavlen (an annual Norwegian prize for outstanding building architecture in concrete).
It took only 60 years before Havnelageret was considered old. In the recent decades the harbour activity has decreased steadily. As a result, there has also been less demand for storage space, and current needs are mostly met outside the qua
