Playdough Monsters

Make these super easy playdough monsters with your kids. Perfect summer vacation activity.
What you need-
Clay
Googly eyes
Button or other embellishments.

This activity comes with added learning. Here are some fun learning ideas for younger kids along with this activity.
1. Monster names- Give your monsters some fun three letter names like zip, wig, fit etc. Nice phonic practice.
2) Counting practice- kids can count and put the number of eyes, mouths, ears, noses that their monsters have.
3) Learning body parts- Kids also learn to name and label different body parts.
4) Fine motor skills- Shaping, rolling and breaking small pieces and putting them together contributes in developing fine motor skills.

Hope you enjoy reading this post.

4 Starting with Sewing Projects


Here I am sharing some of the starting sewing projects that got me started with sewing. I have Usha Sewlite sewing machine which I bought from Homeshop 18. This is a very basic machine suitable only for light weight fabrics. I wanted to test the waters before going for a full fledged sewing machine. Good part about this machine is that its light weight and easy to use. Here are some basic projects that I have attempted.
