Gorgeous Valentine heart sun catchers. You’d never guess they were made from up-cycled milk jugs would you!

MAGIC Chocolate Pudding – a fun recipe for kids…and yes it really is magic, the kiddies won’t believe it…and yes, it does look a bit like a brain!
Cold, wobbly, sparkly Snow Gel; a wonderfully rich sensory play experience.
We were really missing the snow so decided to continue the fun and games in the house by making an Indoor Igloo!
January’s In The Kitchen With Nigella: Freshly baked Oatcakes perfect for a Burns Night supper. Yummy!
Want to know how to build an igloo? Well it’s easy, all you need is nothing but the kitchen sink! …Oh and a spade, that helps…and snow of course, lots of snow…and while you’re at it some thermals!
Seasonal bottles are great to look at, play with and chat about. Children enjoy relating what they can see in the bottle to what’s been going on in their world. Ours are full of snowy things at the moment but pretty much anything can go in them. Have fun and take your children’s lead, I bet they’ve got loads of ideas of things to pop inside and it will certainly give them lots to chatter about.
We’ve been busy in the garden making a snow cat that Biscuit and Crumb decided to call Tabitha. We painted her with simple poster paint but mixed up powder paint would work just as well too.
The children loved how it brought their character to life. Say hello to Tabitha the Snowcat, our new pet.
