Tie-Dye Cake

I made a tie-dye cake for the painting theme birthday we had few days back.  You can see more pictures from the Painting Birthday party here. I wanted a colorful cake to go with the theme. And I loved how this came out to be.

My kids helped me in mixing the colors in the batter and it was like a science project for them...:) They loved mixing the colors and also loved seeing the colors once it was cut.

Painting Birthday Party.

We had a fun paint Birthday party few days back. The kids got to paint little figurines at the party, which was also one of the favors.

I had a hodge podege of ideas till only few days before the party as to what I wanted for that day, but it came out all well at the end..:) Had fun making the paint palette cookies. The rice krispie paint brushes was a last minute addition we made on the day of the party. I love colorful parties and the theme for this party was itself colorful, so loved everything about it.

8 Point Origami star

I made an Origami star few days back, the one which is pictured below and I had so much fun making it, that I wanted to try learning making more and different kinds. By the way, you can find the instructions for that star, which started all this here.  Now that I am trying more origami stuff, you'll be seeing more of such posts here in the coming days...:)

Crossbow using craft sticks.

During winter break it was fun doing crafts with kids. One of the things that we made was this crossbow using craft sticks. After we each made our own bow and arrow, it was fun playing with them. This amazingly goes pretty far.

You can make this and play the game of who throws the furthest. Or if you have a number of balloons you can blow them up, stick them on the wall and see who can burst the balloons, just like playing the throwing the darts game..:)

Paper Bows.

Few days back I came across this tutorial to make this paper bow and fell in love with it. Its fun and good to have to dress up your gift when you have nothing else to top your gift with. The tutorial is very well explained, so I didn't even bother to make another tutorial.

Apple Muffins

Over the winter break. the kids and I got to do some crafts and cooking together. This apple muffin was one of the things we cooked together. Actually most of the measuring and mixing was done by them. I just did the putting in the oven part and ofcourse the cleaning the mess afterwards. This recipe was taken from a kids recipe book and it is very simple to follow.
