Quilt Blocks -100 Day Challenge

Happy Days September

I can’t quite believe it’s the last day in September today.  It’s gone so quick and I don’t really feel like it’s been fun packed and as full as it could have been.  It’s all been about survival and making it through each day at the time.  We’ve definitely been …

Coloured Rice Sensory Play – Fish Picture

Coloured Rice Sensory Play – Fish Picture A while ago I made some coloured rice and have been using it in a variety of sensory play tubs.   So far I’ve kept the colours separate so that I can re-use the rice however I fancy, but today I though I’d try …

Firework / Bonfire Night Tuff Spot

After months of trial and error with messy and sensory play I have finally taken the plunge and bought my self a tuff spot.   Partially because I kept getting comments on my posts saying… “You need a tuff spot”.   What is a tuff spot?   They are basically a …

Edible Paint with a One Year Old – How Not To!

I’m pretty determined that the Robot will enjoy painting! This is not the first time I have tried edible paint with him. It’s not going to be the last time either. First time was back in April when I made edible paint with cornstarch. It was chaos and not how …
