The school holidays are in full force so we've been spending lots of time with beads and elastic making necklaces, rings, bracelets and hanging mobiles. I had 5 little girls of various ages at my house on Tuesday and it was a great way to keep them busy and it was something they could all do without too much help. I use hat elastic which is lovely and stretchy and easy to thread.
I've been doing lots of baking with the kids and generally making a big mess!
The fish came from the confectionary section of K Mart.
My youngest has really taken a leap in her dexterity skills this last term. Watching her thread her own beads and decorate her own cupcakes like the independant miss she is makes me realise how much she has grown and I have to confess that I've had moments of wishing she was still this cheeky baby!
Then I wake up to myself and realise how great it is she is growing up (and sleeping through the night!)
It's The Devonport Craft Market this Sunday so in the moments between the school holiday madness, I've been busy making stuff for my stall.
I've been making some of these:
and a few of these (the apron, not the child!)
