Life In Pictures: A Tiger and a Fairy Leopard

life in pictures - face painting- little button diaries

Play date and mum friends to me are like dating….with a toddler or two in tow. It’s a bit like trying to fit a square peg in a circular hole. I’ve been to numerous houses over the years where I’ve got on with the mum and got engrossed talking about Eastenders when the toddlers are pulling each other’s hair out and screaming “mine” or the other way around where the kids are delightfully parallel playing (ignoring each other) and the conversation with the parent is as dry as their cake and amounts to “So…how many teeth does your child have now?”. I’m exaggerating slightly but you know what I mean.

Life in Pictures… Our Little Holidays

Life in Pictures is our weekly gallery of what our Little Button have been up to over the past seven days. We have both been away for a little break at Center Parcs. Tia visited Longleat Forest with friends and Laura went to the new Woburn site with family.

Our Buttons had a great time being outdoors, cycling in the forests, splashing around in the swimming pools and enjoying a bit of retail therapy.

Air Dry Clay Toy Biscuits

clay biscuits 13

Amelie loves popping foods into her toy cooker and ‘baking’ them, so I thought I’d make her some biscuits from air dry clay. These cute little yummies turned out really well (apart from the Oreo… that one was a bit dodgy) and I think they were my favourite thing I’ve made for her so far! Except that I wanted to eat biscuits the entire time I was making them. Read on to learn how to make your own.

Rainy Day Play Dough

Apparently, say the little people on TV, its going to rain cats and dogs over the next few days. We with our little buttons don’t like to be stuck indoors (which is why we spend so much time in these cafes!) and we get a bit cabin feverish after a few hours. At 18 months, Amelie is at an age where I sometimes struggle to think of activities in the house that will actually entertain her. And me for that matter.

Fabric Baby Quiet book

I am really happy to say I’ve finally finished a project that I have been working on for the last year. Well, that’s not technically true. To be honest, I got stuck on a bit and put it into my sewing bag – out of sight, out of mind – for four months. I have a bit of a habit of doing that. But its finished now, hoorah! My Fabric baby activity book.
