Holiday Treasure Box


A holiday treasure box is a great momento of your holiday for your children.  It will keep them occupied and involved in your trip or holiday.  Any sort of box can be used, we found plastic boxes with compartments in them, but a cardboard box could also be used.  Encourage your child to collect ‘treasures’ along your trip such as:

  • beach shells
  • rocks
  • tickets
  • feathers
  • brochures
  • sand

The type of holiday you have will determine the items in the treasure box, but what every your child wants to collect should be encouraged.  He / she can enjoy sorting through their treasures on the trip and then back at home after.

Egg Heads Get a Hair Cut

Published by under Great Baby Gifts Ideas

Well Ben has given our egg heads a hair cut, he seems to take about 20 minutes every morning grooming the egg heads, trimming their hair and spraying them with water. I has been a great activity to do with him.

Hairy Egg Heads

Published by under Creative Baby Ideas

Well Ben has been watering our egg heads and we think they look great! The wheat grass just keeps growing and growing. They are a bit thin on top and a bit smudged but our pirate and clown are the topic of many conversations and we are enjoying them. We are planning on giving them a hair cut tomorrow…..

Growing Egg Heads

Published by under Creative Baby Ideas

I was looking through my craft book to find something creative I could do with Ben and came across some very neat and pretty eggheads. As you can see from the photo, ours are far from neat and pretty but they were fun to make and hopefully we will grow some hair on them!

Ben wanted me to draw a clown and a pirate, so I attempted, I cant even blame him for the poor artwork….

So if you are feeling creative with your toddler give this a go, all you need is a few eggs, cotton wool, alfalfa or quick-growing seeds and felt tipped pens or paint (preferably water proof).

1. Hard boil your eggs, carefully cut the top off the egg and remove the egg from shell.
2. Decorate the shells with faces
3. Fill the empty shell with cotton wool
4. Sprinkle seeds on top of cotton wool and moisten well
5. Cover with a small amount of moistened cotton wool and put in egg cups near the window moisten cotton wool daily

My mistake was using non waterproof pens and it is pretty hard to draw faces on egg shells!!!

Ben has been good at watering the egg heads and hopefully the hair will grow soon. I will let you know how it goes.
