We have made these, these & these, along with jars of homemade muesli. We’ve been saving our eggs and tomorrow we’ll collect lemons & bunches of herbs from the garden. I have also been working on some cute little dress-up doll magnets and they’ll be for sale too!
As I really don’t have any regular time away from my kids – a husband who works crazy hours & no regular child care – I decided that the only way that I could do this (in reality the only way I can do anything!) is to involve them, so I chose things that were very easy in that regard. It has had to become a bit of parenting philosophy – very frustrating at times & things can take a little longer, but hopefully good for them in the end, particularly as their Mum still gets to feel like she gets to do at least some of the creative things that she likes to do. I know that many of you are Mum’s who like to express a bit of creativeness – how do you do it? involve your kids? wait till they are asleep/at school/at Grandma’s?
