We don't lavish our children in the monetary kind of way, we prefer simple and peaceful family activities. So for this holidays, we took long walks on several surrounding beaches, collecting shells, & driftwood and jelly fish halves (she giggles) & building palaces for our jellyfish halves of course! Darling husband was designated baby wearer, & I was the one following in the footsteps of our other children, watching them in awe! I am not so sure that these moments were quite so special to them as they were to us. But there were times that I felt emotional watching their innocence & hearing their excited questions about our world.
We made shell hangings tied to driftwood & necklaces & bracelets & all things shells... We rode bikes, skateboards, climbed trees, slayed dragons, had picnics, watched Kangaroos feed with their Joeys, and enjoyed our time together as family...
Thanks for popping by & sticking around whilst I was being Mama!
Here is some free fun and makes a pretty night display... All you need is some washed, used tin cans & a drill, the rest is up to you, or in my case, the kids! although mine are far too young to be using a drill, they have fabulous imaginations *love*
I can visualise these outside slightly rusted, hanging from trees, or placed around the deck and looking so pretty! I have drilled some holes in the base for drainage (not too big) & near the rims to thread some wire through to hang them. Just a tip *wink*
