Minions madness

The children are really excited about the new Minions film. Minion seem to be everywhere at the moment and they were pretty pleased to discover a Minion event when we went shopping.

They were able to pretend to be Minions.

Minions weekend

There was face painting, colouring sheets and a treasure hunt. Little Sis got her face painted for the first time with a little Peppa Pig.


Big Brother opted for a minion on his!

Painting in the garden

After school we spent some time in the garden decorating our new tipi. The children wanted to use their hands so we decorated the front of it with a rainbow of handprints.

Cardboard tube Princess tower

One of our favourite films is Tangled and we’ve been saving our pennies to buy the Lego Rapunzel’s Creativity Tower. We’re still a long way off so we thought we’d make our own version. Today we’re sharing our cardboard tube Princess tower.

We used –
cardboard tube
purple paint
sheet of card
black marker pen

First paint your card and cardboard tune with the purple paint. Cut a large circle from the card and cut in half. Twist into a cone to make the roof and secure with a piece of sellotape.
