Upcycled ladybird costume

Today Little Sis needed to dress as a Superhero for nursery. As usual we were only given 48 hours notice so I set to work adapting the Ladybird costume I made for Big Brother last year. I removed the black spots and added some ties. I also made a Superman transfer which I ironed on to a tshirt. Teamed with red leggings Little SisĀ  looked quite fabulous!

Crafting Chinese New Year

Have you heard of Yellow Moon? I buy some of our craft supplies from there as my son’s school receives a small payment every time we shop. I couldn’t resist a bag of Chinese New Year foam stamps and today the 3 year old was happy to sit and sort them. There were 20 different stickers so this kept her busy for a while!

Crafting Chinese New Year

We thought we’d make a Chinese lantern so I cut out the centre of a paper plate and placed tissue paper behind it. Little Sis decorated it with her stickers and we made a small tassle from red wool to make it look like a lantern.

A baking day

This morning Big Brother and Daddy went on their annual trip to the Model Engineering Show at Ally Pally. Little Sis and I stayed at home to hide from the snow which was falling and decided to have a baking session. First up was chocolate muffins, followed by Minion biscuits. Little Sis enjoyed playing with the biscuit dough so much she required a clean set of clothes!
