Glitter T-shirts

My girls are loving the new t-shirts they have been painting. And I thought of changing it up a little  from the normal fabric paint as i have fabric glue and tons of glitter. So the glitter t-shirt idea was born,

All you need is a Plain t-shirt, fabric glue and glitter, maskingtape or stencil. I outlined a Christmas tree with masking tape.0

Then gave each girl their own fabric glue in a container and told them to apply the glue inside the lines. and as you finish a section you sprinkle your glitter.


Then we let it dry.

Once it is dried we remove the masking tape.3

and your picture is done.  I cant wait to get my hands on different stencils to retry it. My girls loved their sparkly glittery t-shirts.4


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.

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


DIY piggy (cow) bank

A while ago with one of the kiddies meals at a restaurant we got this DIY piggy bank which is actually in a shape of a cow.  The girls were bored therefore i got it out and let them paint it. It came with its own paint and brush.


I’m definately keep these paint holders for future use. was nice to not have the girls fighting over sharing paints.
