Westfield all around the country put on little activitys during the school holidays free of charge, and we go to pretty much each one, This week for westfield Chartwell It's to decorate your very own piggie bank pig from the movie Book of life, We haven't actually seen the movie as of yet though.Me and a friend took the kids to go and do a little painting, When you get there you have to put your childs name down for a time, we got there and had an hour spare, so we went and got the kids a cheap and nasty frozen fanta from Mc Donalds, Mr 4 wasn't quite sure on the taste and  so it ended up in the trash over half full.So time to go and decorate the piggies, I wasn't re Read More...

Hamilton Fringe Festival
Posted 10:19 PM on Wed-4-Mar-2015
Every year directly after the Hamilton Gardens Art Festival, the Hamilton Fringe Festival kicks off.  I haven't had a lot o do with it in the past.  Usually because the kids have been too young to go to any of the events.  But recently someone mentioned a children's art display at the Meteor and so I thought I would ask the girls if they wanted to be involved.The theme is things that make you happy - so I discussed with L what we would do and she thought Masks.  So this evening the girls sat and painted masks.  Miss A's is called colours.  She started with yellow which is her favourite colour and added quite a bit more.and L's is called Koo K Read More...

I've been buying all these things over the last 6 - 9 months, to do some art.  I have lots of sketch books, visual diaries etc.  I have sharpie pens with different colour nibs and different widths as well.After setting up my desk and putting all my art goodies into my desk, I just got really excited to actually do something with them.Disclaimer - I'm such a perfectionist and therefore I am NEVER happy with anything I do because as much as I love to create, I'm not an artist.Anyway, the below quote from a Pink Floyd song has been on my mind a lot.  I associate it with my eldest daughter.  So I started out making the diamond shape and then I looked up some sc Read More...

A Very Splashy Morning
Posted 4:11 PM on Tue-8-Jul-2014
We went to Splashy this morning for a painting ceramics experience.  We both had things we wanted to definitely make.  She wanted a new cereal bowl. I wanted a mug and I also wanted to make a new bowl for Miss A.  First up was making the selections and honestly, she would have painted the whole shop if she could have.  There are lots of things to choose from though and you can have something for $12 or something for $60+.  The bowls were about $20 - 22 and the mugs were about the same.  The little bird she is painting here, unfortunately didnt survive.  She smashed it very accidentally and it was a very sad moment.  But they got her another and once sh Read More...

Milk bottle dino
Posted 11:58 PM on Wed-14-May-2014
One of the boys asked for a milk bottle dino last weekend so I decided to share. One plastic milk bottle. Start at the bottom and pierce it with a knife, using the knife or scissors cut along the sides and bottom in a zigzag (makes the teeth) cut the top off and your bottle will now be in two pieces. Poke a hole on each side and use twist ties to join the halves together. Sometimes the boys like to paint or decorate them but this time they were in too much of a hurry to get outside for a T-rex vs giganotosaurus battle so they just scrawled some eyes and nostrils with a vivid.

Artisy craftisy2
Posted 9:01 PM on Sat-1-Mar-2014
Went and bought a brand new sewing machine as well as buttons and ribbons and flowers. I cant remember the last time that I bought something new, just for me. The kids get the new stuff and I get whats left over lol. But its cool and yes I have kept all the receipts, my mind is swimming with ideas.When I worked in Mobil and Shell stations, my mother was collecting old New Zealand coins, so I started to collect the old coins when they came through the station and even after she died I still collected, I just think it was because it was something that connected me to her.Im going to be leaving New Zealand to start afresh somewhere else and someone asked me if they could have the coins, I was a Read More...

Bermabot blogs for The Month of Play Creative ArtWe’ve been wanting to use egg cartons for our art for a very long time, but somehow we never seem to get to it - either because I think we don’t have enough or because when there is enough we don’t have time and end up throwing it away!Well we found out you don’t need hundreds of cartons! One will do just fine for this activity. We built a critter garden and a spider web.Take a look, and join us in building your own.

Making Jewellery
Posted 10:14 AM on Wed-13-Nov-2013
Raglanmum blogs for The Month of Play! Being a Mum of a 4 year old, we have been having fun making necklaces and bracelets with beads since before she was 3. We now have a fab collection of beads of all sizes, shapes and colours, shells, buttons, and sparkly pendants and she is now old enough and clever enough to use my biggest sewing needle to thread the beads onto string herself.These are my daughter’s favourite bits and pieces! I have a box full of more beads and things …I have collected the beads and other bits and pieces over the years, when I see something cheap or interesting. The $2 shop or Spotlight has cool stuff. Second hand stores, Op shops and shops at recycle cen Read More...

Wheely Wheely Fun
Posted 12:52 PM on Tue-12-Nov-2013
Gillymama blogs for The Month of Play! When you think of wheels, do you think of potatoes? No I didn’t think so.Well I’m here to tell you potatoes make great wheels. And to show you what can happen if you think outside the veggie box. This fun activity suits all ages - from my 3 & 7 yr old boys and my 9 yr old daughter. All were interested - from the messy fun part, to the ‘mechanical’ part to the artistic side.But before we got started on our main activity, my car/truck/digger mad 3 year old and I explored some different truck and car wheels. We looked at shapes, pattern, roughness and size of the tread. He’s at that ‘Why, why, why Mama?’ stage Read More...
