We have been reading this lovely book we received for review about Cami Kangaroo and her need for sweets, and the consequences learned at her dentist appointment, by @stacycbauer.
My son likes the book but admittedly he probably likes the cake illustration most 🤣
Today we did a related activity with a paper plate craft of a tooth, some cinnamon, and let my son practice brushing. How do you teach dental hygiene to your littles?

Ava and I had so much fun making this Paper Plate Rock Pool today for this week’s #getcreativewith
theme of sand.
I gave Ava a paper plate then helped her to pour on some PVA and spread it around. She then had the following to stick into her rock pool: - sequins and pom-poms - green wool for seaweed - craft foam starfish - eco glitter - little fish cut from shiny paper - pebbles - sand in a little bowl to sprinkle on.
This is such a lovely invitation to create and one that kids of all ages can try. If only real rock pools were this colourful and sparkly! XX

. That’s like improvements by leaps n bounds from a month ago ! I’m Glad in seeing some improvement in his art sense 😂 Hoever, it seems like his pencil grip skill is deteriorating after the school introduced him to writing. He used to hold a pen in some sort of modified tripod grasp, n yesterday he told me that his school teacher taught him to hold in Digital grasp style and today he decided to go back to Cylindrical Grasp?!?!? 😮 but yest he was still ok when we did our tracing ?!?!?!? What’s gg on ?!?!?

Happy Friday lovely people! It was the last day of school here in Buckinghamshire and it brought a smile to my face to see the Year 6 kids heading off for their final day of primary school this morning. I still remember my last day and the amazing summer I had hanging out with my friends before we all went to big school!
If you’ve got plans to go away this summer then do go and have a read of my latest blog post, all about the best art and craft materials to travel with. Hopefully they will keep the little ones busy so you get some time to relax and have a holiday too! I’ve included ideas for all ages and there’s also a link to my Holiday Makes Pinterest board which has more inspiration.
Do let me know what you think and shout out if you have any questions or great travel ideas of your own to share. XX
