Activity 25: Water jug

28 Sep

The original Pinterest inspiration has come from here: a journey to dream

I decided to try doing this with my small handheld drill, instead of using a heated needle (thought it might be safer to do as Princess Peanut was up and about when I was making this). It turned out a little messier, but was quick and easy.

As I wanted Princess Peanut to use this independently I wanted a jug with a handle that was easy for her to lift and use. One of our friends from our Playgroup had the brilliant suggestion of a Pancake shaker! When I was at Woolies I even found a mini one. I bought both sizes, but for this post I used the mini one.

I started off with less holes than this, but the water didn’t flow. So I added holes, although it’s still not perfect.

This is so much fun Teacher Mumma, I want to do this every day (and don’t worry Mumma I will remind you every day!).

I’m pretty sure this big one is the same, maybe I should try filling this one up!

 

Adaptions: I think I will try putting the holes closer together in the next one.

Verdict: It is great! Was quick and easy to make (and we got to have pancakes!). Princess Peanut asks to go out every day to water the herbs and the other plants too! She thinks it is great fun!!

 

Activity 24: Father’s Day

5 Sep

On Sunday we just celebrated Father’s day in Australia. Last year Princess Peanut and I made a salt dough handprint (not as succesfully as I would have liked but Teacher Dadda was impressed all the same). This year I wasn’t sure what to do, so I went back over my pins and discovered this little gem from Twinkle toes de lux.

So here is my finished product, after a little photoshopping and voila!

It was much easier than I originally thought! I already had the letter ‘A’ for another project so I headed back to Spotlight to get the ‘D’.

Princess Peanut was a bit ill on this day, but we did our best. I took her on a walk and found a nice little spot with a park bench. Popped her on the bench (as a bit of a novelty factor, so she didn’t run away) and started snapping away.

HINT: Shhhh! Don’t tell anyone….I cheated! I didn’t paint the letters at all! I knew I would do the photos in black and white, so I figured that there really wasn’t much point in painting them 😉

It’s framed on Teacher Dadda’s desk at work and he’s already had a few compliments
