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 http://theimaginationtree.com/2012/12/white-clay-ornaments-tutorial.html. 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!

Edible water beads

Today's weather was windy and partly cloudy, it is just a wonderful day for children to carry out a fun outdoor activity. My girls have cousin E to join the fun play today. They wanted to have a mini camping and fun games. The three cheeky pies wanted to play with mix water beads with colors. They seen this activity from Pinterest a few days ago. Go ahead kids!

We had a great fun and messy play outdoor.

We used big pearl sago. Cooked it for abot 30 minutes or until it swell up. Leave it cool down or rinse it with cold water so that children can place their hands in to play it.

Sago is a starch taken from the center of sago palm stems. Sago has similarities to tapioca, including its look, taste and feel. However, sago is not tapioca, which comes from a different plant. You can, however, substitute tapioca for sago in many recipes.


The kids mixed sago beads with food coloring.

 

 

Time to get mess!

Mess is Fun,


.”….so, what are we going to do with these beads?”

“Kids, you got to help to clean up the mess. Tell me what can you do with it?”


 

” We had a great idea! Lets add it into the compost.”

Wishing you have a lovely DIY day!
