mymy loves fairies. i’ve been making these little fairies and bendy dolls for almost a year. i’ve also started making little accessories for them. she hadn’t touched the previous sensory table in a few days so i knew it was time to change it up. she also hadn’t been playing with the fairies as much as before so i decided to use them in the sensory table to see if it would re-spark her interest. i find if mymy’s getting bored with things i just have to change the way things are displayed and she starts playing with them again, or playing with them in new ways.
it’s been a beautiful past couple of weeks here in Galicia. some days being a little too warm. on the days that are too warm we usually try to get outside right when we wake up and then again after 7ish. but here’s what we’ve have been up to lately….
mymy and i had tons of fun setting up our Spring table and love how it turned out.
i made some little leaf buds out of green felt and attached them to our “tree”
here are some things that have been keeping mymy and me busy over the last little while…
we dyed rice and beans to use with our animals. it was really easy. just toss rice and beans (or just rice) into a double bag, throw in some drops of food colouring and shake shake shake. lay flat on a sheet of wax paper or paper towel to dry for a few hours and voila!
for Saint Valentine’s Day i made mymy a love gnome. when she wakes up she will find this…
the little love gnome who came to help us celebrate Valentine’s day also decorated our nature table. he brought us a felt heart garland and decorated our pinecone with pink and red pom poms.
for a while mymy wasn’t doing a whole lot of arts and crafts. i decided maybe a little art cupboard reorganisation was in order.
