{printable} 2016 My Christmas Keepsake Printables

December 21st, 2016|Categories: printables|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

I can’t believe Christmas is very nearly here and another year has whizzed by. These ‘My Christmas’ printables are a family tradition of ours and I have been sharing them on my blog for the last 6 years!!
I know some of you have been using them for as long as we have! It is really lovely to look at these from previous years and see how much the kids have grown and changed in that time.
 
Thank you so much for the support you always show me and my blog, despite not having posted on […]

sweet dreams are made of this :: diy doily dream catcher

July 2nd, 2015|Categories: A Little Delightful, diy|Tags: , , |1 Comment

Chloe hasn’t been sleeping very well lately, and hasn’t felt like herself, so I thought making a dream catcher together would be a lovely way to do something for just her, with the hope too that a it would help her feel more settled and calm for bedtime. We’ve also been popping the vaporiser on in her room with some calming essential oils to see if that helps her unwind and have a peaceful sleep.
My mother in law gave me this doily about 9 years ago, and I just knew it would look beautiful as a dream catcher […]

Hand and Footprint Reindeers

December 20th, 2014|Categories: A Little Delightful, crafts|Tags: , , , , |2 Comments

I am not sure how or why this isn’t already on my blog – because ever since Noah was two we have been making these hand and footprint reindeer and they are one of my all time favourite Christmas activities! 
They’re also super easy, you just need some brown paper (I use two shades) and some googly eyes (you can also just draw the eyes on!). Some red marker or glitter glue for the red Rudolph nose and some glue or tape. 
Trace your kiddos foot on a piece of paper and cut out. If using […]

Hello!! Thank you to all of you that have been asking about these. I almost almost didn’t put them up! It has been so wonderful to hear that some of you do these religiously every year with your children and that you look forward to them! 

My kiddos and I do these every year and it has been such a joy to be able to go through past years pages and see how they’ve grown and changed. Of course this year Owen is a little young but we still completed a handprint page for him […]

{giveaway} :: Amazing toys from Tiger Tribe

December 10th, 2014|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , , , , , |70 Comments

It is very nearly time for school holidays and I tell you what, I’m excited! I love having a break from the lunch boxes and laundry and school drop off and pick up everyday and most of all just love having the kids home for some much needed down time. 
Christmas holidays for us almost always involves travel of some sort to see family and so I like to make sure that the kids have plenty of non-screen toys to play with both on our journey and while we’re away from home. That is where Tiger […]

It’s no secret that I LOVE Christmas, and for us, it’s a whole month of Christmas fun. Many of you have been asking me about what we’ve been up to, so I thought I’d share a weekly recap!

Our cute little elf Peppermint was pretty easy going for his […]

lemonade playdough

We have been enjoying the spring weather! Though I do wish it would make up it’s mind! We have had a hot 36 degree day, followed by a cooler 26 degree day, followed by a couple of days of rain. Never the less, Spring is the perfect time to let nature inspire our playtime and we really enjoyed making our Spring paper plate sun catchers the other day! Continuing on with our little spring time theme, we made this lemon scented playdough which was a real treat for the senses!
I used my favourite cooked playdough […]
