Aah, ’tis the season to eat, drink, be merry and grab a cheeky kebab before you pretend to be less pissed while you pay the babysitter. Just me? I know I’m not alone.
Well, while you’re visiting your friendly neighbourhood junk food supplier, why not ask them for a bunch of their kebab bags so you can make a dazzling paper star?
MINIMISE WRAP RAGE
There’s going to be a lot of wrap-rage in the next few weeks as we all try to tame rolls of paper. Minimise the grumbles by putting cardboard toilet roll tubes around the roll to stop it from unraveling.
This little DIY was actually the first EVER post on Ladyland, three years ago. I’ve done a little redo of it with my glamorous assistant, Frida because it’s really fun for the littlies to get involved and it costs zero money..
School is out at the end of the week so if you’re looking for an easy-going, fun activity to do with your spawns pre-christmas look no further! Fruits déguisés− or fancy dressed fruits if you need a literal translation − is a very enjoyable way to while away a couple of hours (okay, I am perhaps being generous, think more like 30-45 minutes…).
One of my favourite Christmas activities is to bake cookies to hang on our tree. This year I had much bigger ambitions than my usual heart/star/gingerbread man combo, or whatever shape takes my fancy from my cookie-cutter stash, and set out to make big cookie pendants that could be hung not just on the tree, but just about everywhere in our house.
