My little man is turning 3 tomorrow 🎉 Thought I would share with you the presents he is getting this year.
He loves to hammer nails etc at Kindy so to carry that on at home I got him these awesome Build With Me NZ projects to complete with his new hammer and screw drivers. So cool, can’t wait to see how they turn out. Plus some safety googles 😁
His favourite colour is red so I went with that theme for the clothing, paint with water book and an interactive fire engine book. Then finally some bubble bath to top it off.
I hope these ideas come in handy when you are present hunting 😎
I absolutely love decorating baking with flowers. We currently have four large borage plants in the garden thanks to the New World little garden seedlings. The bees are loving them. I picked up this cute little packet of edible flowers from the herb section at New World. They would be amazing on top of cakes or cupcakes. I decided to make a pretty heart shaped pavlova for dessert a family dinner.
A bit of festive gingerbread baking this afternoon. We made gingerbread men with M & M buttons, Christmas trees with M & M decorations and reindeer by turning gingerbread men cutouts upside down and decorating with icing and M & Ms. The kids had a lot of fun rolling the dough, cutting out the shapes and decorating them. We used the Lots of Baking Mixes gingerbread mix and it tasted awesome. So easy to use and the dough was great to work with. We were lucky enough to win it from Marshmellow and Mint.
I managed to pick up a kitchen sink for $1 off trade me and the kitchen pots/utensils for $10.50 from a local Op shop. We used old jar lids to make the switches and fence paint from the garage to paint on the hobs.
It is awesome for the kids to have a waterplay area in the backyard. They love imitating Mum and Dad in the kitchen. So much fun to be had over the summer.
Christmas is only 6 weeks away! I thought it would be a great idea to revisit last years 12 days of Christmas crafts and recipes before I do a 2020 version. This throw back might give you some ideas for recipes for Christmas work morning teas or some craft ideas to do with your kids. I have some great ideas coming for my 2020 12 days of Christmas so keep an eye on my blog.
