E is for Emergency Vehicles 

The Robot absolutely loves vehicles. All of them, cars, trains, bin lorries, post vans, you name them he loves them! There is one thing though that gets him every time. Emergency vehicles.  They’re the best.  I don’t think he really understands the severity of them yet, that they’re normally heading …

Send A Little Love Swap

Send a little love. I know Valentine’s Day has been and gone but if you can’t talk about love everyday then something has gone horribly wrong!   The act of loving someone or something is ever-present in all our lives hopefully.  I have a lot of love to give in …

Winter Snow Christmas Sensory Box

When I received some happy mail last month with the little foam package material in, I didn’t get disheartened by the mess opening it created. I turned it into opportunity by creating a Winter Snow Christmas Sensory Box.  What FUN! Squirreling the bits away into a box for a few …

Quilt Blocks -100 Day Challenge  

If you’ve followed Two Tiny Hands for a while now you might have noticed I quite like a challenge. 2017 has been a whole different challenge to the blog challenges I set myself in 2016, heck, I’ve grown a baby! Since discovering the wonders of the quilting world over on Instagram I have come across a few quilt block challenges that I really want to take part in next year.

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 …

A Pipe Dream, Reality or Hobby?

Becoming a parent, one that stays at home, does something to your confidence, it wrecks it, at least mine anyway.  I feel like I’ve become a little bit socially awkward and I often stay away from situations where I’ve got to talk to people I don’t know.   That makes me …

Sticky Velcro Lolly Sticks

Sticky Velcro Lolly Sticks It’s been ages since I have shared with you any of our playful adventures on the blog. Partly because we have been enjoying the outdoors now the winter has gone and partly because I am just too cream cracked to even try to document any of …

Sticky Wall Flower Picture

I first saw Louise from Little Hearts Big Love using sticky back paper to make stained glass windows and have been waiting for the opportunity to try it. Unfortunately though our windows are not low enough so I opted to just use the wall… Sticky Wall Flower Picture It being …

Coloured Rice Sensory Play – Stars

How to Make a Cardboard Box Oven

How to Make a Cardboard Box Oven We’ve had this particular cardboard box for a few months now.  It has pretty much remained in toy circulation throughout that time.  Everyone always says that all kids are happiest when they have a box to play with. It’s true and their imagination …

White Snow Winter Sensory Box

White Snow Winter Sensory Box This is the first sensory box that I’ve made since owning my tuff spot and I’ve chosen the colour White because it’s Winter and we’ve had no SNOW!  I love to use rice in my sensory boxes and choosing the theme of white has 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 …
