Looking for paint that’s safe to use in kids spaces, or to use while pregnant. Well I found it. Lullaby Paints is non-toxic and safe for both kids and the environment.The colours are all great, making it extremely difficult to pick just one color. Lullaby Paints sells both non-toxic chalkboard paint and regular wall paint (more colours available for wall paint).
My son chose a “Superheroes love LEGO & Ice Cream” party theme for his 4th Birthday Party this year. At first I thought this was too much and tried to convince him to just do a LEGO party. But he really wanted Superheroes too. So why not.
Now to figure out how to incorporate the Superhero part into a LEGO Party. A couple of years ago I made these super simple t-shirt capes and thought it would be easy enough to make for the 7 kids he has invited.
I went through Ben’s closet (with his knowledge of course) and pulled out a bunch of his old t-shirts.
- old t-shirts
- fusible web
- scrap fabric
Take the fusible web and draw your background image on it. For my background images I used a triangle, an oval, and a lightning bolt. The cape pictured below I drew a triangle looking design onto the fusible web and then cut it out. The fusible web is simply a sticky layer with a paper backing on it. You can buy this at any fabric store for about $3 a yard.
Now cut out the triangle shape again, now the fabric will be attached as well.
Once all the backgrounds are ironed onto the t-shirt capes sew a zig-zag stitch around the entire background design. Don’t forget to do a back stitch at the beginning and end. This does not have to be perfect just enough so that the edges don’t fray when you wash the cape.
Now do the exact same thing with the initial you are adding over top of the background design.
So I need to be creative. I heard about these super cute fairy doors that are scatered throughout Ann Arbor, Michigan, and thought it was so magical. I totally wish I had one when I was a kid.
My boys are not into fairies, actually I don’t even think they know what a fairy is. So I decided a mouse door would be equally cute.
I put the door up while they were asleep and let them discover it in the morning. I left a book beside it with a note explaining that the mouse only comes out at night and he will leave them books to enjoy. The mouse randomly delivers books that he finds at yard sales and from our school scholastic book orders. He’s a
The boys squeel for joy when they wake up in the morning and find the books. They really do believe that a little mouse lives there and delivers books!
