Sorry for the little break, my partner and I have just moved into our first family home! So we have just been busy with that really.
This week I have been busy with my nanny children making Mother’s Day crafts.
With my first nanny family we baked some shortbread cookies and I had the trio decorate a banner saying ‘Happy Mother’s day’. I then got them to pose with it so I could take a picture. I got the nicest picture developed (organising three children who are five years old and under in a photo is harder than it looks!) I then bought a pretty frame to put the photo inside.
With my second nanny family (the boys) we bought a decopatch box to decorate with some decopatch tissue paper! The box would be a little jewellery box. We also made some jewellery for her new jewellery box made from air dry clay. See below what items we used and click the links to view more!
We also made a heart shaped necklace by using air dry clay. We used a cookie cutter to get the shape. We used metallic purple paint too – if your choose to use metallic paint just be aware it can stain clothes so just be careful. You can use any type of paint though. If you see closely I got the boys to put their thumb print in the shape of the heart too, how sweet!
We also decided to make the same as the heart necklace but just make it into a keyring instead!
If you didn’t read my previous post about what the children made for mothers day last year for Mother’s Day then take a look here… Candle Making.
