My Princess is a crafty kind of girl - she always wants to make something, wants to do something. Like mother like daughter I guess. And although I love doing crafts with her in the afternoons this can be quite hectic if added to two little boys and cooking dinner. So I am thrilled if I find something that will keep her happy for a while.
We first discovered Early learning Centre when my SIL and BIL lived in Dubai. She sent the kids some of their brilliant toys for birthdays ad Christmas. Some of the favorites are the felt ballerinas that the Princess has and the felt pirates and funnny faces that the boys have.The pirate island water play centre is still a firm favorite now that summer is around again.Just check out the fun they have with it in this blogpost . A few of our Woolworths stores have an ELC in the store - the range in limited and bloody expensive, but some little gems are to be found like this one - now my favorite gift for girls. A DIY faerie kit! Made of foam shapes you assemble your own faerie.There is even a frog prince! The Princess limits herself to one at a time and has made 3 of the 5, keeping the others for another day. As the price is really reasonable, I think we can make a plan for some more faeries as a reward.
