kiddy art..

We did some girly things with Ella on mummy and Ella day this week.. we played with these little plastic tubes from ikea she got for her birthday a little while ago. They've been on the to do list for over 6 months, but with a toddler running around the house most days it just never seemed like the right time as they are far too much of a choking hazard.

We finally got into them last week and they were everywhere... the idea is to make patterns and shapes you like then melt them together with a hot iron.. It was such great fun.. I think this will become a regular activity when my little guy is not around..

Add your link to the 'linky tool' below & link it back to here!! 
see you next week..


  1. I love those beads that you can melt together :) I use them at school with my class...such a neat idea! I've added my week-a-boo link to the linky because it shows in picture what we got up to with Ella on the weekend ;o) I will join in again next week & link it to you :)
    Have a great week xo

  2. They look like fun, my Little Miss 4 would love these (when the baby is asleep, I agree with you!)

  3. Don't know where my comment went, so I will make another one. I love the plastic beady things, they would be popular around here too - as long as the baby was asleep.

  4. how cool! my Daughter would love theses.


thanks for leaving a little comment...
have a beautiful day..
