Colour Matching

1This is a very simple activity to make. Made shapes in MS Word. Cut it out and glued it on a paperplate. 3

When I made the shapes I also made little rectangle shapes with the same colours. Print and cut it out and stuck it to wooden pegs.4

Then we are ready to match the colours.2

My eldest was very eager to show her baby sister how to match the colours. 5 6

Indoor play

When the weather is chilly and no-one feels like going out. You have to get very creative. Today i had to scratch deep in my box of magic tricks to keep me 2 divas occupied. Luckily i had a few games i made ages ago but havent introduced it to them yet.

1. Popsicle Memory game3

I found the template here. My girls love the memory games on my cellphone but thought it should be interesting to not play it on a device2My diva had tones of fun

2. DIY stone domino4

Found this idea here. My small diva uses the dominos to sort it by colour.5

My eldest diva can sort according to the numbers67

They loved it so much that we decided to go look for more rocks to make more dominos

3. Shape mixer8

this i didnt make but the girls found it non the less very exciting to match the shape.9

Then finally indulging in some jello..1

It kepr them out of mischief and boredom. So yay all around.

Cheesy Puff Pastries

My kids are always looking for something to nibble on. So decided to give this recipe a go. All you need is 2 ingredients, puff pastry and cheese of your choice. The girls had so much fun cutting out shapes after i rolled out the dough. i found the sandwich cutters to work very well.21Then came the fun part adding the grated cheese.3And of course my girls could help but to indulge in a hand or 2 of grated cheese.4

Then bake for 10-15 min in a preheated oven, and you are done.5Absolutely delightful little in between snacks.

Exercise with Kids {Toddler Dice}

I honestly cant fit a workout at the gym into my day. its just not realist for us. Therefore I started searching for exercises to do with the girls. Its better than nothing right? Well i came across this blog and thought this was a brilliant and i was definately going to try it.

I tried alot of different options to make the box but what ultimately worked for me was a baby toy blocks. they are light and bouncy.I sprayed them with Rust-oleum Chalkboard Spray. the chalkboard means i can change the instructions as we wish.1I choose to make 3 blocks. 2 to give directions and one to give me the number of repetitions. 2Then I took it for a test drive. Each girl got a chance to roll the Dye.3 6Then time to read what we need to do.4 7

Then hop to it.5We had an absolute blast trying to do some of the instructions, e.g jumping side ways, trying to march and skip at the same time, Kick backwards, fast marching. We loved every min of it and actually work up a bit of a sweat.

Can definately squeeze in 20mins of this into our day.

Milk Experiment

My girls teacher notified us that this weeks theme at school is blue object and i got a brain spark to do the milk experiment as we have blue food colouring.1

I have done this craft before a few years ago and now that my youngest can actively participate in such experiments I decided to give it a go. My eldest was too young to remember it.

I gave them a bowl with milk a few drops of blue food colouring in it. Each got a food skewer and a little bit of dish washing liquid in a separate container. You dip the skewer in the dish washing liquid and then dip stick in the milk and watch how the food colouring moves in all direct away from the skewer.237465

Messy play

This Sunday morning I found the moon sand in the cupboard i made last year and was pleasantly surprised it is still exactly how i left it when i put it away. Might need to top it up soon but it was still soft and fluffy and mouldable.


My girls of course didn’t remember it as it was quite a few months since we used it and had a absolute blast rediscovering the moon sand.3 4 26 1
