I love a craft hack right now and I also love this season’s must-have hat. I don’t love the £300 price tag though! So I decided to do a virtually free version for a toddler. The original hat spelled its phrase in sequins but I chose embroidery as I know sequins are far too tempting a thing for my Little Button to pick off.
Last week we went to Butlins! It was very last minute and very random and, if I’m honest, I wasn’t expecting much beyond kids entertainment, cheesey shows and a pool. We went there because it was Amelie’s birthday and swimming is her favourite thing, after unicorns of course (option A easier to supply). But guess what (dum dum dum)… It was awesome!
Finding healthy desserts and snacks for kids in the summer can be a bit of a challenge. We have 3 ice cream-obsessed girls who spend their afternoons demanding mini milks! So, we did a bit of research for our latest vlog for Channel Mum and have come up with three quick, healthy desserts for kids: frozen yoghurt fruit bites, fruit jellies and an amazing totally guilt-free ice cream. Seriously – it has to be tried to be believed!
Pinterest is seriously dangerous. Every time I go onto it I seem to loss hours (literally whole evenings have disappeared) and have an overwhelming desire to make EVERYTHING on there. These edible ice cream bowls have been taunting me since last year and now there’s a bit of sunshine I couldn’t resist giving them a go.
Life in Pictures is our mini photo gallery of all the things we’ve been up to in the week. This week we’ve been putting on our party hats and celebrating friend’s birthdays (luckily there was sunshine and cake!) More importantly though, it was a big one for us as Tia moved house, meaning that we are no longer one road away from one another. Sniff. So sad about that fact :-(. The week has been filled up with packing up boxes, unpacking boxes and then stuffing boxes into the corner to wait a year because we are so over unpacking boxes already! We did get the craft stuff all unpacked though. Phew.
Life in Pictures is our weekly mini-gallery of what we’ve been up to. This week we’ve been enjoying the deckchairs and pebbles of Brighton beach (although we didn’t realise at the time that the pebbles were seriously grimey… ew. I think we found a barbecue spot!) We’ve also been having belated birthday celebrations and eaten a serious amount of cake!
We’re really excited to be working with Hobbycraft this month and judging their Summer Mini Maker Competition. If you’re between 3-8 years old and love making and creating then get crafting.
Once you’ve finished your masterpiece, upload a photo to Hobbycraft’s website (with the help of a grown up). You could win £100 Hobbycraft vouchers and a craft hamper full of fabulous craft goodies (we REALLY want it!).
