Pitta Bread Pizzas

My eldest daughter is not the easiest child to feed, she is quite fussy about trying new foods, not at all like my youngest who just seems to enjoy eating, anything and everything!!!!
We saw these pitta pizzas in one of our many children's recipe books when we spent the morning looking for new things to try, I let the girls pick some new foods each to try throughout the Easter holidays.
Looking through our recipe books....

Lily chose these pizza pittas and they were very easy to make. we spread the pittas with some of my homemade pasta sauce (I am making spaghetti and meatballs for dinner), then sprinkled cheese on top, and added toppings. The girls could choose from peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and ham. Then I popped them into the oven until the cheese had melted, and served with some chopped up cucumber (lily's new favourite food!)
They both ate them all up. Yummy!!!
Ready to go in the oven!

Yummy!!! Ready to eat!!!

We had a fabulous trip to the seaside. Lily and Daisy rode their bikes, we played on the parks, and enjoyed the beautiful scenery.

I decided to be inspired by the beauty of the sea and we collected some pebbles from the beach to turn into, PEBBLE SEA MONSTERS!!!!

The good thing about making them into monsters is it gives the girls free reign to be creative, a monster can look like ANYTHING!!!

How we did it:
  • I cleaned and dried the pebbles.
  • Then I mixed paint with gloopy glue.
  • Then I let the girls paint their pebbles and we left them to dry.

  • Next we added googly eyes, marker pen accents, feathers, pom poms, pipe cleaners (whatever you have spare!)
  • Then you can name them and give them pride of place on the kitchen windowsill.

The finished results are fabulous! Daisy's monster looks a lot like a chick.....

Easter Goodies From Nursery!

Lily came home from school with some beautiful Easter goodies. She had made a stunning Easter basket out of a paper plate, a beautiful Easter card with fingerprint chicks and bunnies, a yummy nest cake complete with chick and eggs, and a plant to care for over Easter. Beautiful creations from a beautiful little girl. x

Kermit the frog in edible form!!!

I made this cute Kermit cake for a friend of mine who's son was having a birthday, he is a huge Muppets fan so I did some research and found some awesome Kermit ideas. This cake was adapted from a Cookies, Cupcakes and Cardio video on YouTube. Click here to watch the video.  Jenn creates some beautiful cakes, I subscribe to her channel because I love her creations, check her out. I adapted her version from buttercream decorated to fondant covered, and used fondant discs with melted chocolate pupils rather than Oreos for the eyes, however the shape was copied using a giant cupcake mould.

Tweeting greetings....

Another crafty adventure, this time some beautiful bird cards. This is the example card I made the girls for some inspiration, although they both created their own individual birdys.....

What we did:
  • I cut out some bird shapes freehand from scrap patterned papers (which had been half used in scrapbooking).
  • The girls chose a bird shape and glued it to the card front.
  • They then gave their birds feathered wings, and pom pom eyes.
  • They added some chalk legs and some freestyle chalked backgrounds.
  • We then added some secret messages inside and popped them in the post box.
The finished cards, and the proud crafters:
I think homemade cards, gifts and postcards mean so much more than anything that can be bought in a shop... What do you think???

St Patricks Day.

Happy St Patricks Day!!!

We have created some fabulous shamrock prints using a pepper. I got the idea here, and adapted it slightly to include using our fingers to paint, my two tiny crafters love getting messy with paint!

How to do it:
1. Cut a pepper in half and remove the seeds. (Mummy's job)

2. Dip it into some green paint and print onto paper, we used A3 plain paper.

I want to squash the pepper. Heehee!

I am sooo impressed with myself....
 3. Using your fingers add stems and details. 
Lets get messy......
4. Add some glitter, because every craft is better with glitter!

Glitter paint added a girly sparkle.
5. Add your name and give it to your favourite leprechaun.

The finished pictures!!!!
After the experience of using peppers to print with, Lily wanted to try some other fruits and vegetables, so we tried with apples, carrots and strawberries. You could try this with almost all fruits or vegetables......
Daisy had a try with some apple slices.

Lily printed with carrots then added leaves with a paint brush.

The finished carrot picture.
