Today, Mummy and I… #Week2


… Made Valentines Cards! ❤️

Ok, so usually I’m pretty non-commital when it comes to this “holiday” (or “hallmark day” as it more accurately is) but this year I decided to get into the swing of things! 

We dusted off the craft sheet (bargain by the way- £4 from Sainsburys!) and the finger paints and got stuck in! 

The idea was to make a bouquet of flowers using Lambs handprint, the palm would be the vase, the fingers would be the stems and the finger prints at the top would be the petals.

As you can see, they all turned out completely different but that’s what I love about them! Each one is individual! 

We had enough to send one to each set of Grandparents, Great-Grandparents, God parents and Daddy too 😘

The Lamb had a great time playing with the paints and dipping her hands in all the different colours! She was also very impressed when I mixed blue and yellow to make green 😜 super mummy! 

I would really recommend Crayolas washable finger paints. It was £4 for 3 primary colour tubes; we’ve used them a few times now and there’s still tons left! 

It was fun coating every surface with paint! 

Also, mercifully, the paints washed out of all Lambs (and my!) clothes and wiped easily off all surfaces. 

Other things we used were:

*Paper plates for paint pallets

*A packet of 10 plain cards and envelopes (£2 for 10) from Sainsburys 

…Next week we venture outside and see what Life On The Farm is all about! ☺️
