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!

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…)

How to Make Christmas Shopping Bags

Do your Christmas shopping in style (and save on the plastic bag tax) with your own personalised bag. We made these bags as some pre-christmas presents so they could be used in the run up to the big day, but they would also look nice holding gifts under the tree.

Don’t Fear the Mess: Pampers, Painting and Poo face!

Welcome to our first ever video blog! Clara, Izzy and I took part in the Pampers ‘Don’t fear the mess’/#PampersPooface campaign and put Pampers Sensitive Baby Wipes to the test. First, we tested how kind Pampers wipes are compared to just water and cotton wool – the special lotion in each wipe helps balance the PH levels of babies’ delicate skin. Then, Clara got messy with paint and we found how well the wipes got her clean again.

This Week… 16-22 February

It was half term here so I’ve been trying to entertain Izzy for the week which hasn’t been easy given the weather, being unwell and Izzy generally being in a wicked mood. On Monday she was hitting out and throwing toys around in a temper tantrum and we have spent most of the week trying to recover from that!

We baked…
Yummy gingerbread men. Izzy decorated the biscuits (and the entire kitchen floor) with teeny tiny sprinkles, many of which have evaded the vacuum cleaner three times already. We also finally assembled the world’s smallest gingerbread house, which has been hiding in the cupboard since before Christmas. While decorating it, Izzy announced “I love Christmas. It makes my heart sing”
