Handprint wrapping paper

Christmas finger paint project

Rainy weather cancelled my plans for lots of nature walks this weekend. I decided Saturday afternoon that I wanted to try some of the lovely handwriting Christmas crafts floating around on pintrest.

So I ordered these awesome  Crayola washable paints from Amazon. Through the wonders of prime it was with us Sunday morning.
The package also contained some plain brown paper used a packing material. Which seemed like the best thing to use for our first paint craft. I poured the green and red paint into trays and just let Froggy go for it.
he's never really been into painting or colouring before (he's now 14 months).

This time was different though, he really embraced it. I stripped him off (that's why there's no work in progress pictures) and put down the trays for him to start creating.

As you can see there is a gorgeous mix of festive colours in his prints.

I've seen some fun ideas on pintrest for using hand prints to make wreath's and reindeer, but I don't think frog is quite ready for structured creativity like that yet. But I think this wrapping paper will make some relatives very happy.

Little Bloom- Cloth Nappy reviews

If you are a newbie in cloth its hard to know what to buy. I've been using  Cloth Nappies  for 16 months with my first born, and am preparing to have two in cloth when my daughter arrives in May. You could say I'm somewhat of cloth nappy pro. I've moved on from my start up stash, and invest in nappies that will see us through til froggy potty trains, and ideally ones his baby sister can use afterwards too! Pocket nappies are great for this purpose and this week I'm reviewing the little bloom nappies You can grab little bloom nappies on  amazon  from as little as £2.89 delivered. So they are a cheap option but are they cheerful enough to do the job?
