DIY enfant : la Boîte à Malices. Des heures de train, d’avion ou de voiture… Un temps pluvieux… Un petit malade… On a toujours besoin d’un jeu léger et qui occupe les petites mains! J’ai tenté cet été la Boîte à Malices, et elle a eu beaucoup de succès!!! Matériel Vous aurez besoin : d’une boîte en métal de type boîte à gâteauxde petits aimants (et de colle! - ici une machine à laver avec dedans des vêtements à étendre, mais aussi un four dans lequel cuit un gâteau : des rectangles de papier canson pliés en 2 et à moitié fermés par du Masking Tape, « façade » dessinée au feutre. Astuce : pour les vêtements, si on les dessine sur un rectangle, ils se retournent une fois accrochés au fil à linge, et sont plus difficiles à manipuler par les petites mains.

Noah and I started some fall festive garland a few weeks ago, with pine cones dipped in glitter.

We have since added to it with glittered feathers (feathers for turkey? The first Indians?) And thankful tags! I cut up some paper into feathers, and Noah enjoyed adding glue and glitter to them. This time Noah was a bit more comfortable with the glitter getting on him and proceeded to dump it all on his lap and the table. (And floor) :) We also added 'thankful' tags to our garland. I tried my best explaining what Thanksgiving was, but it's not as exciting as Halloween and Christmas. 119: Raindrop Pillow.
