Need an activity requiring very little adult supervision to keep your little one occupied while you devour your new craft books? (thankyooou birthday gift certificate)
Your little fruit loop might like to make one of these fruit loop necklaces. Every day I discover new things on wonderful crafty blogs. This idea is from My Longest Year.
1/2 cup of salt
1/2 cup of warm water
1 cup of flour
(makes enough for 2 necklaces so mummy gets one too. Lucky mummy...)Just mix it all together and knead it a little bit. Then roll it into balls and poke the pointy end of chopstick through the middle to make a hole for threading. Microwave for 2 - 3 minutes turning the beads over half way through.
Wait for them to cool then paint them. When the paint has dried, thread them onto some ribbon/wool/string.
OK, back to my books.
