Easter Egg Stitching Activity

I saw this easter themed embroidery on Craftzine today, and since Sam is currently a little obsessed with the movie Springtime with Roo (to the point, she’s initiated bouts of Spring Cleaning – not that I’m complaining) and she has enjoyed the small amounts of handsewing we’ve done together, I thought she might be interesting […]

Biscuit Cutters

It’s been another long day and I’ve spent the last two hours trying to relax by watching TV and almost relaxed too much and missed the deadline. I visited Rosebowl Bakery & Cafe today and if you’re relatively local to Feilding they have an awesome range of cookie cutters (and heaps of cake decorating supplies!). […]

Daily Links for 22nd March 2010

Well, this is actually favourite links from my rss reader for the last two days :) Homeschool Stuff Sam likes to jump around while counting so the idea of making a lifesize number line to practise addition and subtraction is sure to appeal to her. I’m not a big fan of Easter as it seems […]

Making a Geoboard

What is a Geoboard? Well, to paraphrase the Wikipedia entry, A Geoboard is a tool often used to explore basic concepts in geometry such as perimeter, area or the characteristics of triangles and other shapes. It’s generally a board with nails partly driven in, and students are encouraged to place rubber bands around the nails […]

Trying something different

I’ve been trying to do this kind of post “for quite some time now” (sorry, The Matrix is playing in the next room) and try and move away from my content-thin blogposts of late (and early). So without further ado, I bring you my rss feed picks for today! Craft These Goodie Bags look quite […]

Research on Journalling

I wanted to do make my Mum a Memory Book for Christmas so I scoured the net for inspiration on how to start and found: Make a Memory Book for Mum But in the end, I didn’t want to take the chance of making her a book that she wouldn’t enjoy so I just made […]
