Toucan Box


I ordered this box a few weeks ago as Josh just loves ‘aptivities’/’crafting’ at the mo and I thought this looked really cute. 

I wasn’t disappointed. I got my first box for free from a refer a friend {which you can too} and then it’s less than 3.50 a week and the box arrives fortnightly on the plan we chose. You can also cancel at any time. 

I loved the simplicity and well thought out items within the box along with an easy to follow instruction/activity book. 

At age 3 Josh definitely needs help with some of the tasks but that makes it lovely too. Every 2 weeks now this box arrives with a wave of excitement and it’s one of our things to do together that afternoon. We’ve had 2 boxes now and I’ll certainly continue until the shine wears off but with each box having a different theme I think this box is here to stay in our house for some time to come…


Toddler Activity: Ladybird Pots


These cute little pots popped up on the ads in Nikelodeon recently and Josh asked ‘can we make mummy’ so I felt obliged to tackle this project head on.

I sat ‘project’ this one looked pretty simple which is good as I certainly don’t have a natural crafty streak!

Here’s what you need:

Small terracotta pots

Red and black paint with brushes

Sticky eyes and glue

Something for the ears-we used pipe cleaners which worked well and sellotape. 

See the video here and how we got on below.

Ready to go! 


Nearly there!

Josh really enjoyed it, he complied on the bits it was best for me to do and it was quick, easy and had a great result-the kind of crafting I love! Now we will plant them and give ga ga one and place one as pride of place in the kitchen!
