So its been half term this past week,which to be honest,it always worries me.I don't drive and Scott is at work most of the day so I have to rely on public transport,which is never reliable.So as usual we have had terrible weather,rain,wind and even the odd snowflake and with me having the flu we have tried to make the most out of a bad situation.So other than the odd days out we have spent most of the holidays snuggled inside with plenty of crafts and netflix to keep us going.

With Kadiann stopping over at her friends house for a birthday party,I now had to find something fantastic to do to keep Alessia from feeling left out,with is never a pretty sight.We had a look in the craft cupboard and we found the shopkins shaker maker that she got for Christmas. It is by a company called Giochi Preziosi and they produce toys and tv series based on their toys.

We sat down at the table and got all the contents out of the box.All you need as extras are scissors and some warm water. Kadiann had shaker makers when she was younger so I am not new to these but explained the process to Alessia and honestly,these shaker makers are very easy,even for younger children and do not take long at all.So we went ahead and started on the first steps, then left it to dry for the 60 minutes required.

Alessia was so excited as it came out perfect!She chose the delicious donut mould,she also got strawberry kiss,I am sure all you fellow shopkin lovers will know who they are.All that was left was to paint it,leave it to dry,which took no more than 10 minutes,and place it on the stand that was provided.

It goes without saying that she absolutely loved making this and was eager to do the another one straight away,I persuaded her to save the other mould sachet,but have since found them on Amazon to purchase which is handy. She now has a project to take into school for show and tell that she made all by herself.My clever little Lessie Bug.
