Plasticine fun.

I don't consider myself to be the most creative of people especially when it comes to taking part in plasticine and playdough activities. Believe it or not, I've spent a fair few hours trawling the internet for some inspiring plasticine tutorials but have so far been unsuccessful. Hope loves getting these modelling materials out but I often feel a bit useless when it comes to giving her a bit of direction. So on this occasion we had to rely on our own creative skills; as we had just been looking at The Hungry Caterpillar finger puppet book we decided to make delicious plate of fruit.
And counted: one apple, two juicy pears, three tart plums, four sweet strawberries and five oranges. We also had to make a banana!

And a beautiful butterfly with two wings!


  1. Deb, you are such a wonderful mother! Your children are blessed to have your devotion. I wish I knew you in person! I often think of you when I see 'natural' learning things for children in my magazines! Keep up the good work! It will certainly pay off! x

  2. Well, that's something I don't hear too often! And probably neither do most other Mums - though they should! That's a very nice comment, thank you. But I should add a health warning on this blog that I mostly blog about the good stuff and leave out the not so good. It's quite good therapy for me to focus on the more positive areas of my life at home with my children and to be able to look back on the things we've done. Cheers! x

  3. Blogging is very good therapy! Quite often I do use it to vent though :( Hope is looking so very grown up these days! What a little sweet heart she is!?
