Christmas Pasta Pictures

Christmas Pasta Pictures

I found this pasta in the kitchen and it was right on the used buy date, so we decided to use it in art. We dyed the pasta yellow and green, by adding a few drops of food colouring. When the pasta was dry, we glued it to white sheets of paper to make a Christmas tree and present. R made a green Christmas tree above and B decided he wanted to be different and make a yellow Christmas tree below.     They both worked together on the present, making the gift wrap paper green with a yellow ribbon. If we had more pasta,w e would have been able to make more … {Read More}

Mini Christmas Trees

Mini Christmas Trees

As part of our 'beachy' Christmas theme, we made these cute mini Christmas trees. We have found them to make great table decorations. We started with small, about 10cm high, foam cones. Starting at the bottom of the cone, we added a little foam glue to hold down the end of our hemp rope. When this was dry, we added a few drops of glue all over the foam cone and wrapped the rope around, covering all of the cone. Then we glued the end of the thread at the back of the cone, again using the foam glue.  When this was dry, we glued on a small shell at the top of our … {Read More}

Beachy Decorations

Beach Decorations

This year, we've (or mainly I have decided), that we would have a Beachy theme Christmas as we live so close to many amazing beaches.   The first thing I decided to make was these gorgeous beachy candle decorations. For these decorations, I purchased 3 hurricane glasses; 2 smaller ones and one large one. Then, using a hot glue gun, I secured some burlap around the glasses. Then I threaded a couple of shells onto a piece of string, attaching the string at the back with the hot glue gun. Finally, I glued on a starfish. As the candle in the big jar, was a little small, … {Read More}

Cinnamon Snowflake Cookies

Cinnamon Snowflake Cookies

R was looking for some different kind of biscuits to make. We went through the cookie cutters and found a snowflake one. Then we decided to try making some Cinnamon Snowflake Cookies. They were simple to make, so he was able to do it on his own. He was so proud of himself and we love the taste of these cookies. The little bit of cinnamon sugar on the top of them really makes them.

Monday Memory Verse: 2 Timothy 3:16

2 Timothy 3:16

In each pack there is an A4 poster with the verse on it. This can be printed on white paper or card stock, laminate if you wish, and place in an area in which it will be read quite frequently like: on the fridge door in your child’s bedroom on the back of the toilet door in your ‘school room’ or play room To help your child, you could get them to look at the poster, read it 3 times and then get them to turn around so that their back is facing the poster. Then get them to try and say the verse without looking. You will have to prompt them for the first couple of days, but hopefully … {Read More}

Christmas Montessori-Inspired 3 Part Cards

Christmas Montessori-Inspired 3 Part Cards

Our boys have really been enjoying the Christmas activities we have been doing lately, and the Christmas Montessori-Inspired 3 Part Cards are no exception. Another activity that I have tried with these latest 3 part cards was to do with spelling. I would give the boys the unlabelled card and they would write the word in their book. Then I would pass them the labelled card and they could check their spelling. This has proved great for B who is not good at spelling.

DIY Beach Themed Christmas Ornaments

Beach Christmas Ornaments

This year we are having a Beach Themed Christmas and are making our own tree ornaments and decorations.   The first Christmas tree decorations we have made are these cute Christmas baubles. I purchased the clear, plastic baubles from Riot Art and Craft. The boys added a little bit of sand and a few small shells to each of the baubles. Then I glued the tops on with a hot glue gun. We also purchased the twine used to hang these ornaments from Riot Art and Craft. They look great and when they dry, we can hang them on the tree! Have you ever made your own beach … {Read More}

Cranberry and White Chocolate Scones

Cranberry and White Chocolate Scones

We were walking past a bakery when B saw a taste testing tray. "Can I have a try, please?" We read the label, Berry and White Chocolate Scones, and I thought, wow that is a bit different. But, boy was it yummy! I don't know exactly what 'berry' they used. Raspberry and white chocolate go really well together, but for these scones I thought I would try a different berry: cranberries. They turned out better than I had imagined. They were really yummy, with the hint of white chocolate runny through them.   … {Read More}

Honey Joys Recipe

Honey Joys

We were watching some show on tv, I can’t remember exactly which show, where they were talking about baking honey joys and they showed a picture of them. R asked if he could make them if he found a recipe for them. Of course, I agreed, so off he went to his laptop and started […]
