Number Fun – Foundation Phase

numbers.mgfa-cover

Identifying and learning Numbers can be rather daunting when your child gets past 1-50.

Remember the good old days when you were thrilled that they were counting like little champs from 1-10?

I came across this double-sided poster at PNA its 1-500 on one side and 501 – 1000 on the other.Perfect for kids up to foundation phase.

Then I bought this very inexpensive (dare I say it) gun at Ackermans for R 9.95 and we got to shooting.

What we do? Simple ……….

AIM

SHOOT

And IDENTIFY your number. (if the “bullet”lands between numbers then you have to identify all the numbers the “bullet” has landed on).

It’s an afternoon of fun and I’ve actually found my little guy doing his own numbers “target practice”.

Favourite Find 1: The Numbers Chart @ PNA

Favourite Find 2: The really cheap fun and lick and stick “bullets” from Ackermans

Easter Napkin Ring

IMG_0248

The realization that Easter is possibly my most favourite celebrations has really been cemented.

I love Easter.

I made these Gold Napkin Rings for our Easter Sunday Table.

You can to!

What you will need

  • Foam glitter Sheets – Available at PNA
  • Scissors
  • Pencil and Ruler

I measured on the smooth foam side of the sheet (Glitter front is face down) See measurements above

Cut a slit half way on the top left side and a slit half way on the bottom right side so when you bring both arms together you will slot on into the other

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You could always just tape the two arms together if you like.

Upcycling – Easter Decor

  mgfacross-cover

I like to do a touch of “festive decorating”  over almost any holiday be it a heart wreath at our entrance , Father Christmas Cookie Jar on the kitchen shelf and a little bunny-something over Easter.

Many years ago I went all pastels for Easter and covered a Wooden cross from PNA with scrap-booking paper.

I never used it again after that because I was done with the colours.I thought I’d be smart this year and upcycle it.

mgfacross.03

All I needed was the glue, a scissors and a Stanley knife – I removed all the scrap-booking paper – not easy as I used really good glue.This took me ages and then I had a great idea to use a damp cloth and gently wipe.This did the trick and in not time it looked almost good as new – no left over paper that is.

I had some leftover Gold Glittered sheets from a party we had so I used that and some school glue (Pritt) – this way next year it wont be so hard to remove when I want to used it again to match the Easter colour scheme.

I love how this simple little project turned out.

I’m simply obsessed with saving but I absolutely love shopping , even mundane grocery shopping is fun for me and more so when I know I’m saving at the same time, Black Friday last year was euphoric for me – my dream come true would be if we could coupon like in the States.Think of the show Extreme Coupon.

Well I’ve come across something that is one step closer to coupon heaven.Thanks to Unilever.

I simply registered and now its a quick browse through the specials before I go to the shops and click on the coupons I’ll use so I’m ready when I get to the stores.
