Day #68 Daddy Make!

Creation Station | Christmas Party Ideas

Today was a busy day!

I had a Christmas Arty Party for 32 children this morning which was super fun – but totally exhausting!

With an afternoon trip out planned with Izzy to a Christmas Craft Fair at Elsecar Heritage Centre, I was thinking about what activity to do with Boo today and was seriously lacking in energy.  When I got home I was blown away to find that my other half had already spent some time doing a ‘make’ with Boo!

Seriously – I was stunned!

Don’t get me wrong, my husband is totally hands-on with both children but when it comes to craft and all things glitter he prefers to keep a safe distance – something which is proving to be somewhat difficult for him given my choice of business :)

He had ventured into my ‘workroom/office’ (a.k.a craft disaster zone) - which for anyone who doesn’t know my ‘system’ must be a little daunting - and quickly grabbed the nearest tub of inspiration which happened to be this…..

Bit of a lucky dip eh?

He got Boo settled, found a pack of paper plates in a kitchen cupboard and asked Boo what he should make?

My husband said that Boo insisted that he (Daddy) helped to draw his ‘Mummy’, specifically instructing him that she needed eyes, toes and a nose, and then some string around the edge to decorate and hang.

Oh and a big spider on the back…?

So I was very impressed to find that from a totally random mix of supplies they made this…..!

Very resourceful!

I love that they were able to take a tub of completely random materials and just have fun creating whatever seemed right at the time.

Boo was very excited to show me his ‘Daddy make’!

One very happy Mummy!

Next time I just may convince my husband to break out the glitter tubs…..maybe!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Activity Time: 10 minutes

Day #68 DONE! 32 to go!

I took my little girl to the slime making workshop. Antonia in particular is extremely enthusiastic and helpful which is great. My little girl loved it, so really chuffed in all honesty. Wish there were more workshops during the summer holidays as I would have definitely brought my little girl.

My daughter attended the slime making day today and had so much fun! She loved every minute of it and has been playing with the slime she bought home this afternoon. I would highly recommend and will be attending other classes when we can.

highly recommend Gurjot at Wanstead

I first took my daughter to Gurjot’s class at Wanstead when she was just under 2 years old. At the beginning, she did not want to get her hands dirty with paints and didn’t want to touch the glues. After a term of lessons, she really enjoyed the messy play element and took pride in her paintings and crafts. She would do hand and foot prints with great enthusiasm. Gurjot is incredibly good with kids and is encouraging whilst respecting each child’s individual personality and preferences. My daughter has very quickly formed a bond with her and enjoys interacting with her. I would highly recommend her classes.
