Sequin Image Kit By Djeco at Shorties

Fun with sequins

How could we resist these stunning Sequin images Craft Kits by Djeco
I bought one home for Harvey, who loves a craft project.
Here are some pictures of Harvey completing this pretty Sequin Image.

There is everything you need to help you complete two stunning pictures, 
including clear instructions , a bag of sequins, with plenty spare, and the pins.
There are two images, and foam backs , each with a frame.
These kits are recommended for age 8 -14 ,
 Harvey is eight and had no trouble with this.

Oh how beautiful!

I helped Harvey seperate the sequins into colours , to make it easier to find them.

Harvey Really enjoyed doing this !

Details are magic

How exquisite is she!

Nice JoB Harvey!

Dolls house Decorating With Harvey

Since Shorties started selling the Ollie and Ella Holdie House
Harvey has had hi eyes on one, So we decided to bring one home so he could customise it,
We love that these houses are so portable, great to carry anywhere! 
Below Harvey ,aged 8 ,tells his story about customising his own Holdie House.

I am bringing my Dolls house home with me.

This is the front of the house with a door and windows.

Take a look inside, I like all the different rooms.

This is one side and these are the hinges. 

This is the other side and this is where you open 
the house with a latch.

Here am I decorating the house, I like 
drawing rainbows with wax crayon.

I drew it, this is one side of the house
I drew.
Now I drew and painted all of the sides of the house.

Here I am cutting the wallpaper for inside, my mum helped me measure
the walls.

Here I am sticky tapping the wall paper, I chose 
different wallpaper for each room.

Here I am putting the wall paper on the walls.

I got some colourful wooden mini furniture from 
my mums shop, Shorties.

Yay! its finished now I can play with it.

This is me playing with my doll house.

This is it when its finished, it looks beautiful.

How to make Smeggy Biscuits

Every year Harvey likes to make his class mates some of his special biscuits.
This year when he turned 8 , he renamed them his Smeggy Biscuits and we photographed making them so you can make them too !!



You will need the following...
food colouring

some sprinkles,
we chose these because
we like all the colours

mixed lollies
we chose these because 
they have teeth to make 

mini marshmallows,
 we chose these delicious
mini marshmallows
because these are the eyes
for the faces.

you will need icing sugar.
use a medium sized bowl

add boiling water and 
mix. you may need an
adult to help you.

add a few drops of food
 colouring to the bowl.

Its lots of fun mixing in the colours

get a large tray and put some
biscuits on the tray

spread the coloured icing
on the biscuits

then decorate with the following:
marshmallows, lollies and sprinkles

use edible markers to draw eyes
for the marshmallows

get out another tray to put more biscuits
on (optional)

enjoy eating these nice smeggy biscuits.
