If you are looking for simple tips to get the kids out in the garden and growing fruit, vegetables, and flowers, then head over to Rusty and Rosy where I'm sharing some simple tips for gardening with kids.
I would say that Angry Birds are almost on an equal par with LEGO these days. Although the twins still love their LEGO playlists, read their LEGO books and play with their LEGO a lot, they also love to play Angry Birds games on their cell phones (which were our old phones).
We haven't bought them any Angry Birds toys, and I don't know that I intend to, so the kids got creative recently and made their own game. I had no input in this, none of it was my idea, and I wasn't allowed to help. I simply took a few photos when I saw what they were doing.
So, if you head on over to The Blogger Connection I'm sharing the Angry Bird craft project and game, which involved a lot of paper rolls ... which could also explain why there have been so many blocked up toilets of late.
This morning Miss M asked me to do a craft kit with her, I was just sitting down to start something else and told her we would do it later, I was quite surprised that my husband immediately jumped in and set to work on it with her.
Craft kits are the perfect way for a daddy and daughter to bond and do a
fun activity together, especially if the dad isn't all that crafty.
These Makedo kits come with complete step-by-step instructions, and materials required for assembling the dollhouse. All you need to do is track down some boxes.
Daddy sent Miss M to locate boxes for the project, and then helped her assemble them using the provided safe-saw, lock-hinges and clips.
She then took over to decorate her dollhouse with the stickers that came in the box.
She's so happy with her project, and I think it's so great that she was able to do this one with her daddy.
I cannot remember where I purchased our Makedo dollhouse, but you can find more details about them on the Makedo website. They've got a great collection of kits on there, we have another couple here that I can't wait to work on with the kids ... or have my husband work on with them.
