DIY Project: Free printable Superhero cuffs July 18 2014, 0 Comments

Personally, as a parent, one of the most stressful notes that comes home from daycare and school is 'Don't forget that it's dress up day on Friday'!  As a working Mum, a mad panic generally sets in as I realise that I'm not going to get anywhere near a toy store before the weekend.  So when a fellow working Mum sent me the link to these free downloadable Superhero cuffs, I immediately book marked them, knowing that in the future I'll be able to print them out and turn a standard cape and tights into a Superhero outift in no time.  Thanks so much Kate over at Kate's Creative Space - you've saved this working Mum from some panic in the future!  Click here for more info and for the downloadable pdfs xx

One of the little girl's in our feather the nest family is obsessed with rings at the moment.  She points them out on any finger that she sees and makes several versions out of straws and playdough for her own little hands.  When we were sent the link to these free printable animal rings, we knew that she'd love them and printed them out straight away.  Thanks so much to the very clever Michelle over at So Here's My Life - we think that these rings are the best!  See here for the instructions and downloadable pdf... xx

We love it when people share their clever ideas for kids and think it's even better when they're happy to share them for free!  Play kitchens and toy food are a rather big deal in one of the feather the nest team's house at the moment and when she came across these gorgeous free printable fruit, she knew that it was something that she had to share with our feather the nest family.  To download the free printables visit www.mrprintables.com/play-fruit-templates.html x
