Half term is upon us!

Oh my, has it really been seven weeks since my last post? How time flies! Trust me when I say it's not lazyness, I've had a pretty rough time with the usual Fibro but, thankfully the ME/CFS had taken a back seat. 
Last week I finally got together, with my youngest daughter, for an afternoon of crafting with the nippers. 

Bec bought some face mask kits with paints included which, along with her stash of glitter etc, proved to be a big hit.
The girls excelled themselves, producing some very different styles! ...I must add that these were all their own work with no help from us, except some mixing of colours.
So, in age order, this is Maisey's, age 9.


Sydney, age 8.


Connie age 6


...& last but not least, this is Darcie's, age just 3!


Half term is upon us, a time that can be very frustrating for baby sitting Gran's parents! It can be even more difficult for those with chronic conditions. I find that having a variety of things for the nippers to do is essential ...things that vary in the amount of supervision that is. 

Another craft that our girls enjoy is making hair decorations ...these were made using felt on a crocodile clip, they can be used on a hair band or as hair clips on their own.





These were all the girls own work, I supplied the felt, cut the shapes and let them get on with it. The finished hair decorations are really colourful and look great. I showed them how to tie the bows, next time they can have a go at that bit on their own as well ...before long they'll be experienced hair decoration makers! LOL
