    Pinecone Christmas Ornaments

    We gathered quite a few pine cones this year so thought it will be good to have a go at transforming them in decorations for our Christmas tree. First I painted them – Some in white and some in gold. I left them on the counter to dry for a couple of days and than the really fun part started. You can let your little ones help you with painting as its a fairly easy job to do. My girls adore colouring: I tried out ribbons in different colours to decorate the pine cones. Everything I had around the house really – pink, white and gold and gold or simply…

    Pom Pom Christmas Tree Cards

    My girls love crafting and unfortunately I don’t do it enough with them. It is hard to keep occupied a 4 year old and a 7 year old with the same craft. But they love pom poms and these ones are really cute! And this is how the idea of these cute Christmas tree cards came up. We had to make some new cards to send to our relatives all around the country and the world. I found these mini pom noms in one of our local shops last summer but even since than I knew that I will use them for some kind of Christmas craft. Supplies To Make…

    Guest Post from Maggy at Red Ted Art – Autumn Crafts for Preschoolers

    A bit over 4 years ago I met this incredible, talented woman Maggy Woodley the creator of Red Ted Art.  I already admired her as I used to try her crafts with my then 2 year old daughter.  It was a blogging event but I don’t recall which one now though. At first I thought that she will possibly totally ignore me if I started a chat but she didn’t. She is actually the loveliest lady ever and if you don’t follow her online already you should definitely do so. Now I leave you with the Autumn Crafts she proposes for preschoolers.  ************************************ Thank you for having me guest post today! I do love…

    Little crochet owls and baskets

    As /i run out of the necessary colours for my blankets – the sunny blanket and the sky blanket I had to think of something else to crochet. So I asked my girls and they of course answered – “Can you please make us some toys mummy?”. Oh dear I thought…I cant’t crochet a toy… So I had a look at some tutorials on you tube. Some of them really confused me! First I tried a rabbit but after spending a couple of days on it I gave up! It was useless! This is when I said I just need to learn how to crochet in a circle and a…

    Handprint Tree Craft

    Summer is here now which means the school holidays started. With so much time on our hands is harder and harder to keep my daughters busy and entertained for long period of time when mummy needs to work and can’t spend all her time entertaining little minds. There’s also quite an age gap between them so I need to find activities that are enjoyable for both a 3 year old and a 7 year old. Thankfully my 7 year old is quite happy to do activities that are probably even boring for her because she loves helping and teaching her little sister! Materials: glue stick brown thick paper white thick…

    Paper plate rainbow

    We started this craft a couple of months ago when it was really dark and rainy outside so we had to spend our day indoors. You know how hard it is to keep your kids entertained when they have to spend the whole day indoors don’t you? So although I had things to do around the house I gave my girls something to do too. As they were hoping to see the rainbow that day we started with that. The three of us done our own rainbow – I obviously had to show them how to do it. So we started by cutting a paper plate in half and then…

    Easy Origami Envelopes

    Happy 1st of March everyone! Can you believe it’s already spring? The first two months of the year past way too fast and I didn’t even feel like it was really winter. I mean it only snowed a couple of times and that was all! Otherwise it was quite a mild winter with days that went up to 21 degrees here. Now although it’s 1st of March and the first day of spring is very cold and it’s raining! Pretty miserable start of spring…But in Romania we still celebrate “Martisor” today though so in preparation to this day my girls and I done a lot of crafting and this is how…
