      Play Dough, I used to love that stuff!

      A long time ago, when I was at Play School, we had plain biscuits and decorated them with icing and those little fruit slices and silver balls and hundreds and thousands. Kept us quiet for half an hour.

      I can't think of anything else at the moment - Sorry!

            I write a blog of projects for toddlers. All the project have been done at a local craft session I run. I haven't written it at all over the holidays as I don't run the class then, must get back to it though. Links here if you want a peek.

              I love your blog Amanda! Some ideas there for my own littlies!
              Some of our favourites:
              Draw a hot air balloon on a large piece of paper for them to paint. Get them to do several, as big and bright as possible. When dry, cut them out and create a collage of flying hot air balloons across one of your walls (ours covers the wall in the hall!)

              If we get any sunny days and have the paddling pool out, it's fun to do body painting. Spread a roll of wallpaper across the garden, provide trays of paints, remove all clothing (or leave on swim trunks that you don't mind getting painty) cover body in paint and roll around on paper. Jump in paddling pool to wash off when finished. My boys love this one (surprise surprise!)

                      Thank you, i like the peg dolls they'd be good to put names on and peg together pictures to take home, thanks for that.

                      Everybody's so nice here!!!

                        Heehee sounds like fun!!! I've heard of doing this with jelly! Goodness knows how you make enough to fill the paddling pool though! We just had jelly yesterday, just one bowl took up a shelf in my fridge lol!
