评论-拉文斯堡的中世纪房屋3D拼图

几个月前,哈利和我很开心地回顾了 3D泰姬陵拼图 来自Ravensburger,所以当我有机会尝试另一种难题时,我知道我们会喜欢的。哈利看到包裹很兴奋,他想立即开始!

Medieval House 3D Puzzle有216件,面向10岁以上的建筑商,尽管我认为比这年龄小的孩子一定可以在成人的帮助下完成它。房子主要与编号的塑料拼图拼在一起。还有一本指导手册,可帮助您确定需要遵循的组装顺序。

对于更困难的挑战,您可以仅使用图片来完成它,但是您必须小心正确,因为有时可以用几种不同的方式将它们组合在一起。

评论-拉文斯堡的中世纪房屋3D拼图

房子的主要部分是用拼图碎片建造的,然后还有其他塑料片可插入屋顶和烟囱。一切都非常适合放在基板上,并且我们花了很长时间才将房子组装在一起。对于哈利来说,练习数字是非常棒的练习。我帮助他将碎片整理成数十个,然后按正确的顺序将它们放在一起。他喜欢将所有部件连接在一起,然后我帮助弯曲了角部件并将它们全部安装到板上。

评论-拉文斯堡的中世纪房屋3D拼图

This model was a lot simpler than the Taj Mahal with not nearly as many extra pieces. It perhaps doesn't represent much of a challenge 对于an adult puzzler, but it is a lot of fun 对于an adult to do with a 儿童. The finished cottage is sturdy, lovely to look 在 and it would look nice on display, I know we'll have it out 对于a few days before packing it away 对于next time. 哈里 has also been having fun just playing with it, and flying it around like a spaceship!

We'll definitely be looking out 对于more of the puzzles in this range.

评论-羊毛和帮派编织套件

最近,羊毛和帮派与我联系,询问我是否要审查他们的针织套件之一。 Wool and the Gang是一个Diy时尚品牌,它使编织又酷又有趣。您可以购买纱线来制作自己的项目,尝试使用编织套件来完成项目,或者购买团队成员准备的成品。

我不是最自信的编织者,但是浏览了该网站,并决定可以轻松管理一条简单的围巾。我选择了Lil'Foxy Roxy围巾针织套件。您可以从各种颜色中选择想要针织的颜色围巾,既明亮又柔和。我选择了Shacklewell Grey(黑/灰色条纹纱线)。这些工具包除了编织针外还提供了您需要的所有东西,您可以轻松地将它们添加到您的订单中。

我的订单在几天内寄到了个性化包装盒中,真是太好了!

羊毛和帮派编织套件评论

我很高兴看到该模式确实非常简单,并且能够轻松地对其进行管理。围巾是用15毫米针编织的,因此编织起来很快。我设法在两个晚上完成了它,这是一个非常令人满意的项目(尽管在一年中最热的日子里编织一条粗大,超暖的围巾确实很奇怪!)。

羊毛和帮派编织套件评论

I really like the colour that I've chosen. I deliberately chose a more muted colour because I have coats in several different colours and I wanted to make sure that it matched everything. I'm hoping to be able to wear it 对于a long time so it needs to continue to match with a variety of coats! My progress below is after just one hour of 针织. As you can see the yarn itself is striped, but when it is knitted up it all mixes together nicely.

羊毛和帮派编织套件评论

这款纱线被称为“疯狂性感羊毛”,是由秘鲁最优质的安第斯绵羊种出的!它肯定是可爱而柔软的,它一定会让我在这个冬天保持温暖。

羊毛和帮派编织套件评论

在这里,我自豪地穿着完成的围巾,我看起来并不舒适吗!

瓢虫星期二-史前动物和化石

瓢虫书史前动物和化石

我正在慢慢地做着 我新买的老式瓢虫书, and this one caught my eye. 哈里, like many 孩子们, has always been fascinated by dinosaurs and fossils, and so I knew that he'd enjoy looking 在 this book, even though the actual text is far too complicated 对于him!

史前动物和化石来自651系列,这是一系列自然史书籍,肯定针对年龄较大的读者或成年人。我也看过本系列的另一本书- 植物及其生长方式。它于1974年出版。

瓢虫书史前动物和化石

这本书从介绍化石开始,介绍了早期人们对化石的看法(也许它们是从天上掉下来的,或者是在诺亚河洪水中死亡的动物遗体)。直到最近的200年,科学家才真正了解化石是什么以及它们是如何形成的,令人着迷。我从这些书中学到了很多东西-您知道化石一词来自拉丁文化石,意思是挖出的东西吗?

这本书描述了化石的形成,发现的化石的不同类型,并提供了一些技巧,如果您想自己去猎杀化石。然后,它带我们穿越了地球历史上的各个时期以及每个时代生活的不同类型的动植物。

瓢虫书史前动物和化石

It finishes with some ways to further develop your interest in fossils. I really liked this page about making your own museum 对于the fossils that you have found. I did something similar with 哈里 the other week with some small fossils that he has collected from various places, although his wasn't quite as advanced as the example in the book!

Felt and ribbon purse 对于carrying little treasures about

In this post I'm going into more detail about the 毡, ribbon and button purse that I made 对于Mia, using some ribbon that I received from Fantastic Ribbons. It's really simple to make, and she is loving using it to carry her little treasures around the house while she goes about her role play. 

How to make a 毡 and ribbon purse 对于small treasures 对于a 儿童

我应该提一下,这不是玩具,在孩子使用玩具时,应始终对其进行监督,因为脖子上的缎带可能很危险。

您所需要的只是一块毡,一些绳子或丝带,一些维可牢尼龙搭扣和一些纽扣。我选择了紫色感觉和粉红色的圆点缎带和纽扣。

首先算出您要我的钱包多大。矿山长约12厘米,高约9厘米。毛毡的高度需要是您想要的钱包的高度的三倍,然后将顶部切开,使其形状像一个平坦的顶部三角形。我先用纸做一个模板,从毛毡上切下来。
折起钱包的下半部分,然后缝制到每一侧。然后将色带沿每侧缝制,使其覆盖两侧。我怀疑有比我做的更好的方法,可能涉及到熨斗,我确实发现了它!然后缝上一小块维可牢尼龙搭扣,以便您可以关闭钱包。

How to make a 毡 and ribbon purse 对于small treasures 对于a 儿童

对于纽扣点缀,我先将纽扣缝在一块毡上,然后再切开。它缝在皮瓣的一部分上,您可以从下面的魔术贴上看到针迹。

最后,测量一长段的缎带,使钱包既可以坐在收件人的肚子上,也可以挂在他们的腰上,然后安全地缝在两侧。我扭曲了色带,以便始终显示出圆滑的一面。确保尽可能牢固地缝制钱包,因为钱包一定会在装满后晃动!

How to make a 毡 and ribbon purse 对于small treasures 对于a 儿童


And here's a photo of it in use! I'm sorry that it's a bit blurry, she doesn't stay still 对于long, and I've cropped out her head because (as usual) her hair desperately needed a good brush!

东萨塞克斯郡纽黑文天堂公园

我们的夏天非常忙碌,并且有了一些Tesco Clubcard优惠券,我们计划了很多休息日。我们有我们最喜欢的景点,但我们尝试提出一些新景点,并在纽黑文附近挑选了天堂公园。我们从来没有去过,不认识任何人,但是我们抓住了一个机会,我很高兴我们做到了,因为我们喜欢它!

参观始于行星地球博物馆。从一开始就是地球的生命故事,尤其是许多古代化石。也有一些带有恐龙模型的fab恐龙显示器在移动,您可以使用按钮进行控制。哈利对化石很感兴趣,他喜欢挑选自己认识的化石。

东萨塞克斯郡纽黑文天堂公园

然后我们搬到了植物屋。您从充满仙人掌的沙漠地区开始,然后遍历各种植物,然后在带有大量锦鲤的东方花园中整理。我们很早到达,所以他们很空荡荡,而且真的很安静。然后,您来到外面的主要花园。

东萨塞克斯郡纽黑文天堂公园

此时,孩子们看到了游乐区,没有分散他们的注意力,因此我们让他们放松。一些区域是为年龄较大的孩子设计的,但有些秋千和滑梯恰好适合他们。还有一个地下沙坑,他们花了很长时间挖掘塑料恐龙“化石”,然后我们在大型室内软体游戏区度过了很多时间。他们还发现了Crazy Golf,因此我们将他们打了一轮 for £1 each.

东萨塞克斯郡纽黑文天堂公园

Then we explored the 花园s. There is a Sussex History Trail to follow as you walk around the 花园s which was very interesting, with lots of little models to look 在 , some with 纽扣 to press to make appropriate noises. There are also several large fish ponds, so we bought some fish food 对于the 孩子们 to feed them which they loved. You can choose a longer or a shorter trail to follow.

东萨塞克斯郡纽黑文天堂公园

花园的一部分是恐龙野生动物园,其颜色鲜艳,咆哮的恐龙可以漫步。孩子们被迷住了,尽管听到大声的声音时有些胆怯。

东萨塞克斯郡纽黑文天堂公园

我们的另一趟室内软游乐区之旅结束了我们的访问。不幸的是,微型铁路司机正要在我们离开的午休时间,所以我们不得不分散孩子们的注意力。小火车看起来确实很有趣,当我们穿过花园时,它不停地驶过我们,司机看上去好像真的很开心!

我们在天堂公园度过了大约四个小时,可能在凉爽的一天花了更长的时间。如果我们住得更近,我肯定会考虑年度通行证!

我们使用Tesco Clubcard代金券参观了天堂公园。个人条目是£9.99 per person, with 孩子们 under 3 free, or you can buy a family ticket (2 adults and 2 孩子们 对于£29.99。年度家庭公园通行证是£69.99。查看更多信息 天堂公园网站.

梦幻般的丝带丝带工艺品

一系列简单的丝带工艺品

最近,我被选中查看Fantastic Ribbons的一些产品。神奇色带出售各种各样的色带,还有许多其他手工艺品,例如纽扣和纸胶带。我以前从未真正买过色带(我从盒子里的巧克力,衣服等中清除色带),因此能够浏览网站并选择一些色带用于制作工艺品真是太好了。我选择了一卷漂亮的粉红丝带点 (5米)和一些大胆的钴蓝色侧缝缎带 (4米)。每卷成本£2.50,对我来说似乎很有价值。

一系列简单的丝带工艺品

我喜欢蓝丝带的颜色,因此决定使用其中的一些来创建简单的丝带书签。有很多更复杂的制作方法,但我所做的只是剪了一段色带,并使用大珠子将其固定在底部的环中。然后可以将珠子在色带上上下滑动,以适合不同尺寸的书本。

一系列简单的丝带工艺品

然后我移到了粉红色的斑点丝带上。这条缎带确实吸引了我,它与我拥有的纸胶带相当!我在当地的手工艺品店发​​现了这个特价的小纸箱宝箱,并用海报漆将其涂成浅粉红色。完全干燥后,我用双面胶带将色带粘在盒子上。真的很简单,这是保留我一些较小的狡猾位的好地方。此刻它充满了按钮!

一系列简单的丝带工艺品

I used some of these 纽扣 对于my third Fantastic Ribbons 工艺 - a 毛毡丝带钱包。 Mia喜欢玩上学前去商店/去商店/去屋子里去野餐的游戏,她有各种各样的行李袋,可以用来搬运她需要的一切物品。我以为我会给她一个小钱包,以留住一些她的小宝贝。(请记住,如果要为一个小孩做这个,重要的是在他们玩耍时监督他们,因为这可能会缠住他们的脖子) 。我剪了一条长长的紫色毡,将其折叠并缝在了两侧。然后沿着边添加一些功能区。它以魔术贴关闭,被一个由毛毡切角制成的小设计隐藏,并用纽扣装饰。您可以在这里找到更详细的说明- 毛毡丝带钱包.

我从Fantastic Ribbons收到了进行这些项目的功能区。

在Butlins与Beechdean Scooby Doo冰淇淋共度一天!

我们在Butlins Bognor Regis享受了一天的暑假,开始了一个美好的开始!距离我们只有几步之遥,但是从小我就没来过,所以我很高兴被邀请来尝试一些Beechdean Ice Cream的新Scooby Doo冰淇淋。我们也有机会观看了Scooby Doo Live表演,这是本季Butlins的新表演。

与家人一日游Butlins

We were greeted by this enormous deckchair, and of course we had to stop and take a photo! Then we had some time to explore. The 孩子们 were a bit too timid 对于the rides in the fairground but we had a great time on the smaller rides and the indoor soft play in the Skyline Pavilion.

与家人一日游Butlins

Then we headed 对于the conference centre to find out more about the new Scooby-Doo ice creams. When we arrived, first we 在 tempted some Scooby Doo themed dressing up to take a "Scooby Selfie". 

与家人一日游Butlins

然后,有很多冰淇淋可以尝试!共有三种新口味-巧克力小吃,蜂窝小吃和白巧克力和草莓小吃。当然,为了公平起见,我们必须尝试其中一种。我最喜欢的是蜂窝,但米娅非常喜欢白巧克力!


与家人一日游Butlins

之后,前往中央舞台观看Scooby-Doo现场表演。它装在里面,但我们设法在前排地板上找到了座位。幸运的是,这是一个轻松的氛围,所以孩子们有点躁动也没关系。哈里喜欢这个节目,尽管起初有点害羞,但他很快就大声喊着并指出演员的坏人。尽管Mia有点烦躁,所以我们只在演出的前半部分完成了,但是我们所有人仍然非常喜欢它!

与家人一日游Butlins

最终,我们回到了天际线亭子,并花了更多时间在小型游乐设施和轻柔的比赛上。到这一点,我们都有些热心和烦恼,所以现在该回家了,但是我希望我们能在某个时候回到Butlins,因为我知道我们没有足够的时间来看看!

Beechdean邀请我们一起去Butlins,所以我们获得了免费入场。

哈里的第一学年结束了

In the blink of an eye, 哈里's first year 在 学校 is over. It started off slowly, but the last few months have gone so quickly, and now I can hardly remember a time when I had two little ones 在 home all day. The 学校 run has become a fixture of our routine. I know exactly what time I need to leave the house 对于drop off and pick up, I know where to park and I know all the different routes that we can walk. We've even managed to work it all around our gym trips. 

孩子完成学业的第一年

哈利的表现很好。他开始上学时并不认清他所有的来信,而今年已成为全班最杰出的读者之一。他渴望学习,喜欢各种东西,喜欢学校,结了很多新朋友。上周他有自己的第一个运动日,参加了一次课堂集会,并与婴儿合唱团一起演出。我们为他感到骄傲。

Although 哈里 seems happy about his move to Year 1 it's a big change 对于him. The classes are mixed up, so he's only going to be with a few 孩子们 from his old class. They also don't mix as much between the classes. His classroom is 在 the other side of the 学校, not kept separate like the Reception classes, and I'll no longer be taking him into his classroom in the mornings. I've not met his teacher, or even seen inside his new classroom.

哈里 is definitely ready 对于a break, these last few weeks have been hard work. And I'm so looking forward to having him home 对于the holidays. I've got lots planned - we have our 夏季清单 to work through and I've been arranging plenty of trips out. Mia will still be 在 nursery 对于two mornings a week so there will be some time 对于just the two of us.

I'm trying very hard not to think about the fact that once he's back 在 学校 in 九月 it's not going to be long before we receive our application form 对于Mia to start 学校 next year. I just can't imagine it!

Sponsored post - NISAs - the new name 对于the ISA

您是否知道自2014年7月1日起ISA发生了变化? 

目前,我们并不一定总是在月底有很多钱可以存起来。但是,当我们这样做时,我们总是将其放入我们的ISA中。这是省钱的显而易见的地方,而不必担心为此纳税。直到2014年7月1日,现金ISA的最高投资额为£5,940,增至£11,880(如果您将其余部分投入股票和股票ISA)。

但是,自2014年7月1日起,一切都发生了变化。 ISA现在被称为新ISA或NISA,并且年度津贴增加了£15,000,可以完全节省现金,股票和股份,或两者的任意组合。现有的ISA将更改为NISA,自2014年4月6日以来所做的任何贡献都将计入2014-15年度的津贴中。

In theory this is great news because it offers opportunities 对于larger tax free savings. But 苏格兰友好 已警告储户需要警惕自动将其所有ISA资金以现金形式持有,而要考虑可用的替代方法。

The reason 对于this is that banks and building societies have already started lowering their interest rates, rates that are already low, in anticipation of the NISA launch, and it's important to think about whether savers that invest all their money in cash are really receiving the best deal. 

尼尔·洛瓦特(Neil Lovatt),苏格兰友好’的金融产品总监说:

“每拿出一个投资ISA,就会打开三个现金ISA。 

“Cash is easier to understand as it offers security and access to the savings without penalty that investment ISAs do not. People are being put off by what they think is pure equity investments and instead are opting 对于accounts that offer poor returns on their cash. 

“The changes introduced in the budget gave savers a glimmer of hope and incentivised people to put more money aside each month. However, the Cash ISA market has not risen to the opportunity, instead choosing to offer low rates of interest on cash ISAs and in some cases actually reducing their rates 对于fear of overly high inflows”.

我必须承认,我们只投资了现金ISA。像许多人一样,我们希望获得ISA现金提供的安全性,并且我们都知道,通过股票和股票ISA,投资的价值可能会升跌也可能升跌。 但是,如果您准备着眼于储蓄方面的长期情况,那么有一些投资方式仍然意味着您的储蓄是安全的。 

因此,如果您目前有一些备用资金可用于投资,则不必认为现金NISA是获得一定投资回报的最佳方法,因此值得对替代方案进行一些研究。您可以在下面的视频中找到更多信息:

评论-Aquabeads豪华套装

最近,我有机会复习了一些水珠。普通读者会知道Hama珠子是这个家庭中一个狡猾的宠儿,所以我非常有兴趣尝试一下Aquabeads,以了解它们的比较。我收到了 Aquabeads豪华套装 (会员链接)进行审核。

Aquabeads豪华套装评论

The Aquabeads豪华套装 contains over 1200 beads in eight colours in a divided case, a base tray, eight template sheets, three base boards to place the beads on (each with a different configuration 对于the beads), a bead pen to help you place the beads, a sprayer to fix the design and full instructions. With this set you can make a small photo frame, a desk tidy and a variety of different pictures.

水族珠是小的圆形实心珠。用手指或用巧妙的小珠笔将它们放在托盘上,当您按下侧面的按钮时,它会捡起珠子并将其掉落。基板很好地适合模板放在下面的基板上,并且它们是透明的,以便您可以准确地看到将珠子放置在何处。设计完成后,您只需将其喷洒适量的水并使其干燥即可。珠子上的涂层会在水中微溶,这会使珠子粘在一起,然后再从底板上取下产品。

珠子很小(有弹性!)。哈里(5 1/2)刚开始发现它们时有些摆弄,但是他很快就解决了,他喜欢用珠笔。因为他将珠子直接放在模板上,所以设计时没有问题。

Aquabeads豪华套装评论

Once you've sprayed your design you need to wait 在 least an hour 对于the beads to dry, meaning that you can't make another design straight away on the same board. This pack includes three boards though, so you don't need to stop creating. The finished piece peels away from the board quite easily once dry, and then you can respray it on the other side just to make sure that it's solid, and they feel very firmly stuck together.

Aquabeads豪华套装评论

The huge advantage that Aquabeads have over Hama beads is that 孩子们 can complete the whole process themselves, they don't need to wait 对于an adult to iron their creation as they can just spray it themselves.
It's also very easy to make 3D designs, either by layering up different flat pieces or making small boxes. All the pieces can be packed down quite small so it's easy to store (although the divided storage tray 对于the beads didn't keep the colours separate 对于too long!).

Aquabeads豪华套装评论

哈里 has really enjoyed doing this set, it's something that he can easily get on with by himself while I'm making dinner which is great. Mia is a bit young yet (it's recommended 对于age 4 and above) and it's too fiddly 对于her 在 the moment, but it won't be long before she's able to have a go. 哈里 has had several 工艺ing sessions with the box and he hasn't completed all the projects yet, so there's plenty in the set to keep 孩子们 occupied.

You can buy refill packs 对于the beads and also a variety of themed sets with different designs and project ideas.

瓢虫星期二-特殊日子和风俗的故事

You may have noticed my absence from 瓢虫星期二 lately. This wasn't because I had lost interest. The truth was that I'd actually worked my way through my meagre collection of 瓢虫书s, and hadn't had the opportunity to search 对于any more! I've been finding the really vintage ones that I love harder and harder to track down, and when I did find them I couldn't really justify the cost.

然后在周末,这发生了:

老式瓢虫书的大集合

We were visiting my husband's parents and they had retrieved three boxes of old 图书 from their loft 对于him to go through. Well, as you can imagine, I was in 瓢虫书 heaven. I was so excited to see 图书 that went with 图书 I already had, and so pleased to find so many 图书 that 哈里 will be able to read and enjoy now and that both 孩子们 will be able to read and refer to as they grow up.

It was so difficult to choose one to start with 对于this week. In the end I chose 特殊日子和风俗故事. It was published in 1972 and is from Series 644. This series only contains two 图书, and I wrote about the other one a few months back - 我们圣诞节习俗的故事。我很努力地完成了一个系列!

特殊日子和习俗的瓢虫书

特殊日子和风俗故事带我们度过了全年庆祝的各种特殊日子。这些是我们在这个国家庆祝的场合,主要围绕基督教日历,但也包括愚人节和篝火之夜。实际上,这是一本非常好的参考书,因为我非常喜欢与孩子们一起做季节性手工艺品和活动。

特殊日子和习俗的瓢虫书

A page is devoted to each special day, accompanied by a gorgeous picture. Some are of people celebrating the day itself, others are of some of the Gods and Goddesses or historical figures that are the reason 对于the celebration.

特殊日子和习俗的瓢虫书

In the introduction, the book boldly states that the most important anniversary in the year is Christmas, although this may just be because they have inserted a plug 对于the 圣诞风俗 book. Once again the 瓢虫书 manages to present plenty of information in an easy to read and understand fashion.

通过阅读本书,我学到了很多东西,尤其是关于基督教徒们如何利用基督教前的节日。孩子们将在他们的学校中学习和庆祝很多这样的场合,能够在那个时候一起分享这本书将是一件很高兴的事情。

绿毡和纽扣树构图

我喜欢用毛毡和纽扣进行手工制作(在这里看到我的毛毡和纽扣刺绣箍艺术!),最近我在学校跑步时在当地的手工艺品店拿到了一个可爱的新银色相框,就用带图案的织物背景制作了这张小纽扣树图片。

绿毡和纽扣树裱画工艺

这是我的方法:


用料:

框架(我的没有玻璃)
图案背景面料
绿毡
棕毡
绿色按钮
织物胶
剪刀,针,绿线,棕线

使用说明:

I bought the frame in our 本地 framing and stitching shop, they usually have a box outside with small frames 对于£1 each. It has no glass or backing to it, but that's fine 对于this project. You can easily buy cheap frames from Ikea or the large supermarkets.

绿毡和纽扣树裱画工艺

要做的第一件事是通过在框架周围绘制并为图片创建轮廓来在纸上计划按钮树的设计。您还需要选择要使用的按钮,并计划它们的放置位置。我决定坚持使用相同颜色的圆形按钮,但在Pinterest上发现了很多灵感,它们的按钮形状和颜色都不同。设计完成后,拍摄一张您可以在以后缝制按钮时参考的照片。

绿毡和纽扣树裱画工艺

将厚卡切成与框架相同的尺寸。然后切出比卡片大几厘米的背景织物。必要时熨烫。

Use your paper drawing to trace templates 对于the 毡 pieces (the trunk and leaves) and cut them out. My one tip 对于cutting 毡 - buy some decent, sharp scissors and only use them 对于cutting 毡 and other fabric to keep them sharp. Use pins to secure the template to the 毡 when cutting. The tree trunk shape was quite fiddly to cut, I found it easiest to cut a little outside the template, and then neaten up once the paper template was removed.

绿毡和纽扣树裱画工艺

以框架为导向,将毡片放置在背景织物上,并用一些小的织物胶点将其固定在适当的位置。不要用太多,因为这将使以后缝制布料变得更加困难。

绿毡和纽扣树裱画工艺

然后缝在树干和叶子上。我使用对比色和大针迹,因为这就是我滚动的方式,您可以匹配颜色以使针迹不可见。

绿毡和纽扣树裱画工艺

Then it's time to sew on the 纽扣. You don't need to be as diligent as you do 对于buttons sewn onto clothes. Make sure that the 纽扣 are all the same way up and decide how you want to align the centre holes, I went 对于random directions. I stuck pretty closely to my original design, but I did make a couple of changes.

绿毡和纽扣树裱画工艺

Then you need to mount the fabric design onto your piece of cardboard. Check the positioning carefully, then fold over the edges and secure them with some long stitches across the back. Sew down the corners 对于extra security.

绿毡和纽扣树裱画工艺

然后我发现我的照片整齐地放在框架中。如果您拥有更坚固的框架,则可以将其固定到位。我认为在没有玻璃的情况下效果更好,因为它是三维的作品。这是最后一块!

绿毡和纽扣树裱画工艺

我非常喜欢它,因此我继续制作了第二个按钮感觉的图片,您可以在这里看到它- 棕色和粉红色的感觉按钮树图片。他们俩看起来都很棒,挂在我桌子上方的墙上!

盐面团串珠魔杖

I've been meaning to make fairy wands 对于a while. Mia loves dressing up in her princess and fairy costumes, and by calling it a magic wand I was able to interest 哈里 in the 工艺 too! They are great 对于imaginative play, and with the streamers they look fab when they are being waved around.

Sugru beaded fairy wands 工艺 对于children

These pretty salt dough wands with their ric rac streamers are perfect 对于waving and twirling about. They take a few days to make as you need to wait 对于the different parts to dry, so you need to work on them in stages.

你需要:

一定长度的竹制甘蔗或类似的棍棒
胶带
Ric rac或功能区
强力胶水或Sugru
小木珠
闪光/亮片/其他装饰

制作盐面团:

两种措施纯面粉
一小撮盐
几滴食用色素
水拌成面团

每根魔杖都是用花园里的竹棍制成的,切成30厘米左右,两端打磨光滑。我用彩色的ric rac装饰了每个人的整个长度。我发现最简单的方法是用胶带将ric rac的一端固定到木棍的末端,然后在木棍的侧面涂上一线织物胶。在送出ric rac的同时,旋转棒的一端,使其覆盖圆形,然后用胶带固定在另一端。晾干。

The toppers 对于the wands are made with salt dough. I used a very basic recipe - two parts of plain flour to one part salt, with a few drops of yellow food colouring and enough water to mix it to a dough. I used a heaped tablespoon as my part measure and it made enough 对于about eight toppers.

I sorted out some small wooden beads 对于the 孩子们 to use to decorate the salt dough. I've seen enough 工艺s on Pinterest using melted plastic beads to be wary of using plastic beads in the oven! Then we made up the salt dough and cut out shapes, placed them on a baking tray and pressed in the beads. This amount of salt dough made enough 对于about eight shapes, so the 孩子们 could choose their favourite when they were dry.

烘烤盐面团时,我非常注意烤箱,并每隔十分钟检查一次,因为我对燃烧珠子有些警惕。最后,我在低火(100°C)下烘烤了一个多小时,将盐面团翻了一半,这绝对好。然后,我将盐面团块放在通风的橱柜中几天,以确保将它们彻底干燥,然后将它们放在阳光充足的窗台上。当它们干燥后,我会用一些银色闪光漆画它们,使它们真正有光泽和闪闪发光。

I cut some long lengths of ric rac to make streamers 对于the wand. The salt dough pieces are quite heavy, and so I chose to use Sugru to 在 tach them to the top of sticks. 我最近评论了Sugru 对不同材料粘合在一起的效果印象深刻。我用了一包5克黄色的Sugru,足以将盐面团和长条ric rac牢固地粘在棍子上。如果您没有任何Sugru,则需要使用一些非常坚固的胶水,也许首先将ric rac胶带粘在棍子上。

When the Sugru or glue has dried, the wands are ready to be played with! Children can invent all sorts of role play games, and these wands should be sturdy enough to last 对于a good amount of time.
