Scrapbook Sunday: Sparkly firework playdough – Lisa (The Toy Hunter)

Welcome to the first entry in this new guest series, Scrapbook Sunday (which collects fun activities for kids/families from parents who’ve tried them with their kids, for others to explore). Today, Lisa shares her recipe for making sparkly firework playdough for Bonfire Night!

***

Bonfire Night … Just writing the words conjures up images of crisp Autumn nights, sparkly fireworks, and family time. This year, Bonfire Night falls on Sunday, 5 November, and people across the UK will be having back garden firework parties, going to organised firework displays, or having bonfires and gathering together to mark this very British event. Kids will be learning about the origins of Bonfire Night at school and may also be coming home with homemade crafts that reflect the season.

Blogtober 2017 | Day 25 – Year in review

The year 2017 has been a big year for me. There have been ups and downs, like any other year (maybe some ups that were more up and some downs that were more down), I suppose. But, unlike any other year, this year I became a mum for the first time … nothing can top or take away from that!

Blogtober 2017 | Day 24 – Xmas

I’m so excited to celebrate my little man’s very first Christmas! Being the first grandchild I both sides, I suspect he’s going to be showered with gifts!

Blogtober 2017 | Day 23 – Weather

We’ve been having crazy weather here. One day it’s nice and sunny, the next it’s cold and dreary. It’s still in that odd phase at the beginning of spring here, where it can’t decide whether or not to be warm. It makes it a bit hard to plan outings, because you don’t really know until the day dawns whether or not the weather will be suitable for whatever activity you have planned!
