Fun With Cups

Searching back through my photos stored in my emails I came across loads of pictures of the Robot having fun with cups. As I like to share activities with you to do with your kids I thought now would be the best time to show you this before I forget …

Ziggety, Zaggety, Zoom!

Ziggety, Zaggety, Zoom! Lets just have some fun. One of the Robots favourite books is Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson. One of the witches spells is “Iggety, Ziggety, Zaggety, Zoom” and I thought this would be fun way to end this alphabet challenge. A witch and magic themed …

Yoghurt Pot Yachts

It’s not often I spring the craft supplies out on the Robot. As much as I love crafting and making things myself I often cringe at his ability to just make a mess rather than create something, even a bit like something. I know that’s not the point of being …

Xtreme Torture #abc123challenge

Life has got the better of me this week and the blog has not for want of trying taken a back seat. I have half written blogs coming out of my ears. The week X that we are in has failed! Oh well. I’m blaming the torturous sleep I’ve been …

Xanthan Gum Safe Slime Take 2

Two years ago I had to come up with a play project revolving around the Letter X. We came up with Xanthan Gum Slime. The Robot was just over one years old and I made it with vinegar, needless to say I think it was a disaster. Roll on to …

Vehicle Painting

Don’t you just love how  you come to an idea sometimes? I was sat playing in the garden with the Robot and he had dunked his tractor in the paddling pool and was riding it over the blanket where I was sat. The tyres made a really good water print …

Unicorn Sea Foam Sensory Play

It was when needing a U project for the ABC123Challenge last year when I came up with Under Water Sea Foam Sensory Play.  A simple game of look through soap bubbles for super hidden sea creatures, aka bath toys.  Roll on to this version of Sensory Sea foam and we …

P is for Play Doh

Play Doh Those two little words Play Doh certainly have me shiver.  I try to embrace it as much as I can. I even want to be that well-intentioned Mother who makes their own “safe” play doh, but I’m not. We have the shop bought stuff, I even requested it …

J is for Journaling with Toddlers

When the Robot turned two I thought it would be fun to start a journal with him. Journaling with toddlers can only be fun right!? Journals and journaling is something I’ve always loved doing, keeping a diary on and off throughout my childhood and now with my bullet journal I …

I is for Ice Play

The last time we did the #ABC123Challenge we did ice play for I. This time round was a completely different experience. Ice play is more fun the older you are! The set up for ice play is one to prepare in advance.  Out freezer is in the cellar which is …

H is for Home Play Day

Sometimes you just get stuck at home on a home play day.  We’re not very good at being in all day.  If it’s the weekend then it’s even worse. Dave is hopeless at staying in and we’re always on the go at the weekend because of it. There are times …

G is For Growing Cress

Before I had kids I used to allotment and volunteer in GirlGuiding.  I always used to want to share my love of the outdoors with my Brownies and Guides and would often find ways to get them growing things.  Most often growing cress! Unfortunately due to moving and the demands …

F is for Foam Shapes

This post is not for the faint hearted! It’s not even really the best how to post.  Pinterest perfect it is not.  It’s an experience, one that makes me think why do I even bother.  Foam shapes, no, no, no. This reminds me a bit of the time I tried …

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 …
