Welcome to another Wacky Wednesday project – how to make a growing flower.

You don’t need any gardening skills and won’t even get your hands dirty doing this one.

In fact, this project is so easy I recently did it with 30 preschoolers, aged three to five.

The perfect way to display artwork.

Welcome to another Wacky Wednesday project – making Mum smile with pretty picture planters.

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, the challenge is to find something new that will put a smile on her face.

Those of you who read my post Gifts To Make Mama Cry will know I’m all about giving the emotional gift instead of buying into the commercial hype and (possibly) getting something that will not be as cherished.

85TH BIRTHDAYS

It was a huge year for birthdays in our family this year. All remaining great-grandparents are celebrating their 85th year.

85,  what a milestone!  Party time!

My in-laws live interstate but Mum is nearby so it made sense to plan a party.

I chose the theme of flowers as it has special meaning for my Mum and me. (Be sure to check out Wacky Workshops for a wonderful flower related craft). I made flower-shaped food and flower party bags and decorations.

The only thing left to do was buy the gift. Easy right?

Welcome to another Wacky Wednesday project.

I love flower pens. It’s hard to be unhappy when you’re writing with something so pretty and they are loads of fun to make. I saw one in a shop years ago and figured I could do that and I have many times. It has always been a big hit during my classes as well.

So I figured it would be a must to make these for the flower themed birthday party I was hosting. Then I decided to incorporate them in a lolly bag with a difference. Stay tuned and I’ll tell all.
