Making A Puppet Show : With Flora Butter..


We have been busy, busy over the last few days of the half term holidays. A unexpected visit from my son who is at uni, some fun days out and even a spot of gardening when the sun was out on Wednesday.

When we have been indoors we have not been short of things to do thanks to the boredom busting basket and family fun guide from Flora Buttery.


We had lots of fun making a puppet show. My daughter had lots of fun making a boy and a girl puppet. She named them after her 2 favourite teddy's, Alex (the lion) and Nelly (the elephant).

Credits : A Puppet Show : by Flora Butter.

We all have a pile of odd socks. Give them a new lease of life by making sock puppets.

Time : 10 minutes.

Age: 3+.


What you need :
  • Odd socks 
  • Buttons Glue 
  • Wool Cardboard or felt
What to do:
  1.  Find an old clean sock that’s long enough to go up your arm.
  2. Put your hand inside to make the basic mouth shape with your thumb and fingers.
  3. Sew on two buttons or glue on two circles for eyes.
  4. Now decide what other features to add; some wool hair, whiskers, eyelashes, a tongue? 
  5. Finally name your puppet and suggest the kids stage a puppet show.

We had lots of run playing with our sock puppets, fancy making some too?

About this post :

We kindly got sent this Flora’s Family Fun Guide hamper to have some recipe and crafty fun over the half term holidays. All thoughts are our own and I was not paid for this post...

D.I.Y Bottle Light...


This Bacardi bottle was just too nice to throw away. I tried to throw it. But thought. What can I do to keep it? I thought of making it into a cake stand bottom!?! it was just a bit to tall. A vase!?! Yes nice idea. Just not wide enough for many flowers. A candle holder. Yes i can see this. Not got the rights size candles in to fit.

Oh yes got it. A lamp. It looks beautiful on my shelve along side some glasses. Photos do not do it justice!! Waiting to go aside some Christmas drinks now...


You will need~
  • An empty beautiful bottle { washed out and completely dry}
  • Some battery operated fairy lights {I picked mine up from Pound shop}
What to do~
  1. Simple place the fairy lights into the glass bottle.
  2. leave the battery pack outside at the back to turn the lights on and off easy.

Christmas Crafting : Tots 100 And Bostik Family Craft Bloggers...


Me and my daughter have had lots of Christmas crafty fun this week, thanks to our crafty bloggers pack from Tots 100 And Bostik. We were inspired by the Christmas theme and had tons of different ideas to make. Some of the fun things we crated included bangles, gift tags and a mini Christmas tree.


My daughter getting to work on her "Let it go" Christmas present bag.



First she drew and cut out her Christmas tree, the she got to work on the sticking. With the tree in place she then stuck some shiny squares in place to spell out the words " Let It Go" I said why not "Let It Snow?" But that is not in the Frozen song mum!?!{A few days later she thought that would have been good to say,when her brother suggested it!!} Then the fun bit decorating the tree with glitter pom poms, beads and stickers.


A hand decorated ball with shiny square bits on for the tree up next. We simply tied some ribbon around the ball to hang it on the tree. Then stuck some shiny squares all over.


Next up the Christmas tree and gift tags. The tree taking up the most time, and tags the least. I love both of these the best.


Sticking some fuzzy felt material cut down to size on first then twisting 6 pipe cleaners together in a long line to wrap around the tree. Finally sticking stars, snowflakes and pom poms everywhere with a big polystyrene star on top.


Santa and his elf peg men up next, wait where are their faces!! my daughter created these with some felt and string wrapped around.


And last up some bangles with lots of little beads threaded on. The beads all kept sliding to the bottom on the photos though, typical!!

About this post-

We got send a lovely parcel of fun things to share our crafty work. All thoughts on the post are my honest opinion and I was not paid for this post...

Shoe Cabinet For Under £30.00...

Having a large family, hiding all the shoes away can be a big task. I have been looking for ages for a big shoe rack that looks nice and tidy, holds lots of shoes and is trendy in the hallway too. Having broken our last shoe rack how could I add all our shoes onto the little shelves that you see in the shops?
