Our Weekly Roundup #34

  • The week got off to a surprisingly bright start with a glimpse of Spring, albeit brief. We went to the beach on Saturday and twice on Monday – partly because the tide was in when we visited in the morning, so Clara and I just got to walk across the pebbles, and partly because Izzy was desperate to play in the sand after school. They got soaked going in the cold sea but they had grins from ear to ear.

  • The nice weather also meant Izzy could finally get out on her bike. The rain has put awash to that over the last few weekends. She tried to ride without stabilisers for the first time and was quite unsteady and very frustrated but she did well for her first attempt.

Our Weekly Roundup #7

Mother’s Day
The girls have been busy making Mother’s Day treats this week. Izzy made a lovely card and some tissue paper flowers at school, and she was so proud when she brought them home on Friday. Clara made card at nursery, and when she gave me it this morning she was so excited. “Me! Hand!” she said, pointing to her hand and then to the handprint flowers. She also painted me some pictures at playgroup and gave me a little bunch of daffodils.

How to Make: Clay Jewellery Bowls

These jewellery bowls are really easy to make and would make a lovely gift for Mother’s Day or a birthday!

PicMonkey Collage-clay

Aside from the drying time in between stages, they are quite quick to make and children can roll, cut out, decorate and paint the clay themselves – although young children may need help with the rolling and cutting! (more…)
