ice bath play

18th 04 2018. Posted in Magical Moments at Home by elliekelly

 

I got the idea for this bath play from a lovely lady on instagram.

I dunked a few of Neive’s plastic toys in water and popped them in the freezer overnight. Bing needed a little help to stay under the water 🙂

 

Neive was fascinated as soon as I showed them to her and couldn’t wait to get in the bath to ‘set them free’.

 

She had fun swishing them around getting them to melt and trying to pull them out and i got to introduce her to a few new words ice, melt and frozen (we did ice play in the padding pool when she was little but she won’t remember that).

Ding this outside might be just perfect this week with expected our heatwave!

homemade shortbread

9th 04 2018. Posted in Magical Moments at Home, Parties by elliekelly

 

This could well become an obsession. Oh dear.

I really didn’t think making shortbread was going to be as easy as it was. My mum and husband have both made it before, but I had never given it a go.

Until now that is, and it’s SO flippin easy! It’s definitely going on my favourite list.

If you’re looking for a home bake for the party this would be ideal. Myself and Neive did some jam filled shortbread biscuits and them some plane shapes ones as she loves her plane cookie cutter.

 

All you need to do is get a cutter that fits your party theme mix the three ingredients, roll, cut and pop in the oven for 15 minutes. And you will impress everyone!

Plus it’s a nice easy one for the kids to help with, if like me you cant do aything in the kitchen with out a little ‘helper’.

This is the recipe I used.

 

 

Happy baking
