DIY Alphabet Salt Dough Stones

I thought these would be such a great idea for a DIY, not only would Lake love making and playing with the salt dough (she did) but there are so many activities she could do with the alphabet stones. And by using salt dough they are much lighter than actual stones and more suitable for Lakes little hands!

DIY: Mud Chocolate Play Dough

So the other day we made play dough and Lake was a massive fan (See original recipe here). So this morning we decided to have a go a Chocolate Mud Play dough. We then made a little garden scene for Lake to destroy play with! It kept her entertained! We made some green coloured rice and added flowers, twigs and stones to that and the play dough.

Simple No Cook Play Dough Recipe

I wanted to make some play dough that lasts, so I started researching recipes online. I discovered that in traditional recipes you have to cook the play dough. Cooking the play dough gives it a better texture and helps it last longer. The down side though is that it gets very messy! I then found this recipe which uses boiling water instead, so makes a perfect play dough without the mess!

DIY Toilet Tube Bird Feeder

Lake loves looking for 'birdies' on our walks and when I asked her if she wanted to feed the birds, she was super excited! I started trowelling the internet (pinterest) to look for a simple bird feeder. I found this one and adapted it slightly to fit what we had a home!

DIY Body Sugar Scrub

So this one is for the bigger ones, or even just mum! I made this with Jessica, she is really into her beauty products at the minute. I am a massive fan of body scrubs, I love how soft and clean they leave your skin. Jess and I both used this in the shower last night and it worked so well and smelt beautiful!

DIY Blowing Bubbles

If your little one is anything like Lake, they will love bubbles! Lake is obsessed with them, we are constantly buying them for her to use the whole mixture in a matter of minutes! In the past, I have experimented with trying to find a recipe that actually works, and this one really does. No more buying bubbles for us.

DIY Toy Mop

I have been after a wooden toy sweeping set for Lake for so long, as she loves using mine. All the ones I found were quite expensive, so I had an idea to make my own, and I thought a mop would be an easier alternative. Its such a quick and easy DIY and Lake has honestly has had so much fun with it already! I used a wooden dowel as we had one in the shed, but you can pick them up in B&Q for about £3, I also think a little garden cane would work perfect.

DIY Paper Butterflies

I think its safe to say we all know how I love crafts, but I especially love them when Lake can get involved. I always try to involve her in some way or another, so today on our daily walk we went hunting for little sticks. She had her little basket and was filling it up with way more sticks than we need, but she was having fun!

DIY Two Ingredient Play Dough

I had seen this recipe several times on the Pinterest and You Tube, and as Lake is that little bit older now I thought I would give it a try. I love that it is only two ingredients, both which most will have lying around the house. Lake hadn't really played with play dough before, so this was a great way to it out.

DIY View Finder

I love this one, again it is perfect for your daily walks with the little ones. You can add little pictures in and they can search for them. Lake loved looking for rainbows in the windows and birds and trees.
