There was a little painting of treasures from the recycle box….and a touch of glitter always brightens things up of course!
I think it goes a long way to proving that offering these sort of easy activities to children when young will instill a sense of creative wonder and joy that will stay with them for many years to come!
There were some vegetable and rice fritters made with leftovers for an easy Saturday night toddler dinner…you can find the base recipe HERE if interested!
A little fun in the kitchen helping Mummy to make double choc biscuits and muffins for Daddy to share at his work. Of course we had to keep a few for ourselves and there was the joy of licking the bowl…didn’t make for a good dinner appetite though!
I don’t often make muffins this decadent so i went in search of a new recipe to try…I found THIS ONE from Best Recipes and it was quick and easy although i used white choc buttons and dark choc chips as i was using up what i already had in the pantry.
Very yummy but perhaps not so great for my weight loss journey!
Taking a break from the heat i set up a few different activities in the shade of the verandah and the playdough with some flour in bowls as well as some plain and coloured pasta to mix was most popular and kept them busy for ages!
Big and Little Sis had fun trying out some new dress ups that Mummy found at a fantastic garage sale for only a few dollars! Miss teen squeezed into a Tinkerbell fairy outfit which goes to prove you are never to old to enjoy dressing up i suppose!
