Toddler Tuesday | Salt Dough

This week I decided to make some salt dough for Lilly to do a handprint in. So simple with ingredients from the cupboard.

You will need: 2 cups of plain flour 1 cup of salt 1 cup of water
Method: Mix all ingredients together well to form dough then play Model into shapes or roll out as we did and do prints.

After you have done you need to cook on a low heat for a few hours.
such a quick and simple idea, and can be very good to make momentos.

Toddler Tuesday | 20 Month Update

I cannot believe that my little girl is 20 months tomorrow.

She makes us proud every day and brings tears to my eyes at least once a week for being so amazing.
Don't get me wrong, she winds us up to buggery sometimes but what toddler doesn't.
So first to her speech, she says new words every single day. I am truly amazed at how much and how easily she picks up words. For us, from the telly, songs, other people. She knows most of her body parts now and a he'll of a lot of animal and vehicle noises too. Unreal really.
Food is a love for Lilly. She will eat pretty much everything that we put in front of her. She is so cheeky though as she always answers chocolate when we ask what she wants to eat, definitely my girl.
Lilly is still in size 12-18 month clothing and size 3.5 in snows although she can for into a couple of her size 4 shoes. But on a high note she can finally have a mini ponytail....finally.
That's pretty much it for this month, Thanks for reading.
