Things to Make Tuesday

10 May

One of my favourite bloggers Curly Birds was featured in the most recent issue of the Babiekins Magazine  with this lovely tutorial on making a kite.

I recently made some coloured rice for the Monkey to play with as was feeling guilty that I wasn’t doing enough tactile play with her. The rice came out beautifully, but I must confess, I still feel guilty for not doing enough tactile play with her as the rice looks so pretty that I don’t want to mix it together. Pathetic I know!

I have however brought little bits and pieces and once we’ve had a good play with the coloured rice this weekend, I thought I’d make one of these… (ps – I just used liquid hand sanitizer – the one with alcohol in it – 3 or 4 squirts into a bag of rice and it did the trick perfectly)

A nice and easy ‘how to do this project’ can be found on Modern Parents Messy Kids
