My Hit & Miss Crafts

Now you all know that I am not the best crafty Mum in the world. My Instagram photos are not going to win any awards, and I don't have Pinterest boards filled with genius bakes and creations and I don't even own any sewing needles.

However, what I do have is an interest in spending quality time with the kids and giving crafts a good go. My favourite craft has to be baking. Which is ridiculous considering my Slimming World #operationwobblybottom adventures - I just would never eat cake - certainly not the cake that I make - I know exactly how much butter has gone in!

However, I love watching the kids' creating and getting all messy and involved in stuff like this, so it's all worth it. Last week Emily was tasked in school to come up with a business plan, and to demonstrate it. So, long story short - I HAD TO BAKE A RAINBOW CAKE. Yes, her idea was about being some sort of baker - so I had to buy the goods and well....get creative. I have baked one of these before so I knew the amount of work that had to go in.

I basically had to bake five cakes, as you know if you've ever done this. Below are pictures of the final result. I'll be honest, I was chuffed that I have now baked this type of cake twice and got away with it - apparently it was gorgeous and most of it got scoffed in school.




Flicking through my old craft photos - I am a bit hit and miss come to think of it.

If you were looking for craft supplies, then Hobbycraft is always a great place to pick things up. We tend to have a wander around our local shop quite regularly and pick up bits and bobs for the kids.

Always remember, crafts are not just for Instagram and Facebook - just get involved, have a laugh and hope for the best. Sometimes the actual making is just as fun as the end product!
