Last night was a full moon night. The little one went in to our tiny balcony and back about 7 times, he then plonked himself on a sofa near the window to get a good view. Every few minutes he … Continue reading The Nature Play Store
It’s been a good and hectic couple of months for us here at Artventuretales, as you probably guessed from the quiet around here. Or maybe not :). We were off to a 28 day adventure at Singapore, which I will write about in a separate post or you can read all about it on my instagram account @artventuretales. Once we were back the school grind began and although we still did our activities I never got a chance to document it. With the little one growing up and showing signs of becoming extremely independent (and how! This morning he cried … Continue reading Vegetable Printing for Toddlers
It’s been a few days since we did anything creative different from what have done previously. The little one is teething so sleep has been totally elusive both for him and more so for me.

He’s been at his legos, wanting to learn how to make his own orange juice and other little things that remind me everyday that he’s growing up. … Continue reading Ice and colour Volcanoes with salt – Summer Ideas
Babies, before they start loving everything messy, have a slightly more complicated relationship with gooey, sticky textures. No? ok at least mine did, both of them. V (as we’ll call my older son) was very clear, he wanted nothing to do with anything sticky till he was almost 3 years old. A characteristic his teachers in pre school were quite concerned about as they couldn’t get him to do any messy activities like hand prints. S (my second born), is a whole different story, he loves the mess, for a short time, He obsessively cleans everything in the house, it’s … Continue reading Stamp pads and stamping – Toddler fun!
