DIY clay ornaments

November 28, 2014 at 9:06 am | Posted in christmas, DIY gift, Preschool plays, Uncatogorized, xuen and Lyn | Leave a comment

We loved the idea of DIY Christmas ornaments. I found a few recipe online and I tried working with the recipe that contained glue. It was not turned out well (blame my skill). I then found an easier one provided by an awesome blogger at I followed exactly her tutorial and we are happy with the result. It is so easy to make. The clay dough was soft and easy to knead. My girls had so much much playing with it and we ended up making clay dolls instead of Christmas ornaments. We will make the next round for the ornaments.

Kids cooking is always the best and fun play for kids.

We used cookie cutter to cut out the shapes. The pink dough was added food coloring.

After baking the clay. We decorated it with colorful florecent gel pens.

Have a Lovely DIY day!

Express your love to someone special by DIY gifts. Apple Cheeks was so proud to make her own coconut jam for her dad. Making coconut jam is easy and fun:

Top picture shown the ingredients: 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 1/2 cups coconut milk, a pinch of salt, 1/2 teaspoon corn flour and one pandan leaf.

Bottom picture: caramelized sugar by heating a teaspoon of sugar and a teaspoon of water in the pot.

In a bowl, beat the eggs, add in sugar, coconut milk, salt and corn flour. Stir untill ingredients are well mixed.


Apple cheeks was so proud of herself cooking at the stove for the first time.

In the pot with caramalized sugar, pour in the mixture together with pandan leaf. Cook it in a very slow fire and keep stiring it. It will take about 30 minutes untill the mixture is thicken up. It will be brown in color. Done! My family love toast bread with coconut jam and butter. Yummy!

Please assist you kids while they are cooking at stove.

Homemade Coconut jam in a glass jar. What a lovely gift for valentine. Mommy and Apple Cheeks prepared this for daddy and our lil sweet pea. You can make this too!


Happy Valentine's Day to all

DIY gifts to someone shows how thoughtful you are. It also demonstrates your creativity. My little girl- 'The Apple Cheeks' was asking me to assist her on making a Valentine's card for her ballet instructor, Miss Lovell. It was a recycled project which we cut out some nice pictures from some old magazines, then turned it into a very lovely collage card. Finally we put it in an empty CD case. It is simply wonderful!

How to do?

1. Cut out nice pictures from magazines.

2.Apple Cheeks was enjoying herself with the cut and paste work to make a lovely collage card.

A card for her ballet instructor ( Ms Lovell ) Isn't this beautiful? Do you notice that it written LOVE and LOVELL? The two pink ll next to the word LOVE. She loves Miss Lovell.

This idea is simple beautiful. Hope you will love this too.

Happy Valentine's Day to all
