diy dad’s day gifts

So, you have downloaded and completed your free printable telling Dad how and why he is so fabulous. If you want another little something special to include with the story, why not try making a personalised plate or cup? All you need is an oven safe cup or plate and a permanent marker.  Drawn on your design (you might want to do a practice run on paper first!) then bake in the oven at 175C for about 30-40 minutes.  Voila!

Here’s some inspiration I found on pinterest …

After two days of rain our little crew is starting to bounce of the walls with pent up energy so I think we’re going to need a bit of this “quiet spray” at bedtime.  You can whip up your own version with a couple of drops of lavender in a spray bottle of water.  Works a treat to help the little darlings (and even mama) relax.

Another great idea is the Monster Spray – terribly handy if your little ones have nasties hiding under their bed or in their wardrobe.

What other sprays would you find handy at your place?
