"Look what I got mummy!"

For a long time now I have been inspired by my gorgeous friend Hayley over at Little Pinwheel. You see every Monday she does a new brilliant craft activity with her children. You probably have seen all about her and agree that you can never get tired of reading her craft Monday posts. I just adore them and how wonderful and inspiring she is as a parent to her two beautiful children.

Well my little guy normally heads of to my in-laws on Monday for a bit of grandparent time whilst Mummy gets a bit of house work and Little Choopie work done. But today he is at home with mummy and whilst making a mess, whilst Mummy was cleaning the mess, I heard a little voice say "Look what I got Mummy!" Out came a huge case full to the brim with crayons, markers, textas, stamps, stickers, paper, glue, paint and paint brushes. A crafty child's delight.

Excited by his HUGE find we set about making some space on the kitchen table ready for a lovely morning of crafting. First I gave Lucca (That's my Little Choopie) some paper and we did some painting and drawing with markers. These were his pictures for Papa, that we will send off to Papa's work.

I thought Lucca may have got a bit distracted after awhile but he simply just loves to paint and draw and craft anything (a bit like his mumma) so we were able to keep at it for a good while. A nice way to spend the morning with my little guy.

Next we moved on to a card for Lucca's Nanny. Out of my craft box came a bright red card and a few other bits and bobs including foam shapes and some cupcake liners from the pantry. Lucca continued to do some drawing on this card with textas and then we had a go with the stamps. This was really quite messy but a lot of fun watching him do it. Lucca then settled on a few pieces of foam shapes to glue down and then some cupcake liners to finish off his card.

I am looking forward to many more craft mornings with my Little Choopie. And I am sure I will continued to be inspired by my gorgeous friend Hayley at the Little Pinwheel Blog. Make sure you jump over and see what she has crafted with her little ones this morning, a fantastic crafting experience on talking hands!


  1. Very Creative little Boy! Soo Cute!

  2. Nice one! I have long admired Hayley's dedication to craft with the kids. Good on you for getting into it. The Baby Space toddler would looove it if I made this a regular thing with him...
