Muffin Making with my Little Muffin

We seem to have skipped Spring here and gone straight to Summer. Already it's 25°C even though just a week ago we were still wearing wooly hats and scarves! While it was a bit hot to play outside in the middle of the day Alba and I took the chance to do a bit of baking. It's the first time I've baked with her and I was expecting chaos. I obviously underestimated her though as she stood on her chair as quiet as a mouse, delicately stirring and adding raisins one by one. At the finish she even asked for a cloth to clear up the bits she'd spilled. I'm looking forward to doing some more baking or crafty projects with her. If anyone has ideas of fun, creative things to do with toddlers please share them in the comments. 






Have a great week everyone x x

My boys were toddlers quite a while ago now, but I seem to remember we went on nature walks and made collages with what we found. Or made collections into different types - stones, leaves, flowers, etc. We did potato printing too, finger painting, and so on. My eldest son was quite funny as he liked to drive his little cars over my back, so I used to crouch down with a book while he drove his cars. :)

There are some fun ideas on this website:

Gorgeous pics as every - she's growing up so fast! If you find yourself with any surplus warmth, please feel free to send it in the general direction of Scotland - we had hail and sleet today. I've tagged a bunch of things I've cooked / baked / crafted with Martha under 'Mini-M Makes' on my blog - although they're not particularly refined or delicate efforts... http://makey-cakey.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Mini-M%20Makes

I wish to show some thanks to this writer for bailing me out of this matter. Right after checking through the world-wide-web and obtaining thoughts that were not helpful, I thought my entire life was gone. Being alive devoid of the solutions to the issues you have solved all through this short post is a critical case, and ones that could have in a negative way affected my career if I had not encountered your blog. Your good training and kindness in taking care of every part was very useful. Im not sure what I wouldve done if I had not encountered such a stuff like this. I am able to at this point relish my future. Thank you so much for the reliable and amazing help. I wont think twice to endorse the sites to anybody who should receive support about this topic.
