At My House

...Well it wasn't exactly at my house...but I'm rarely at my house so I hope I can still join in with 'at my work' 

I am a full time nanny for 3 gorgeous children aged 7, 5 and 2. I was really looking forward to today as the oldest 2 were at school and we had no jobs to do so youngest and I had the whole day for exploring! My plan was a day in the New Farm Park which has only recently re-opened and we have been dying for a free day to go check it out! However I wake up this morning to...rain...park plan = FAIL!

My brain went instantly into panic mode...what am I going to do all day with a very hyperactive 2 year old...normally the day gets broken up with shopping or jobs or he has trips with his mum but today we were all free! 

~ Thank goodness for my Blog community ~

Luckily last night I had been reading through, with delight, Buttons by Lou Lou's and her followers "At My House" Blogs. I went straight to the pantry and tried to find all the rice and pasta and bits and pieces I could get my hands on! As this was a last minute plan I had no time for dying any of the rice or pasta but I still think youngest had a ball! 

...We had a selection of rice, pasta, paints, regular stamps and a sweet potato stamp...

...After preparing tonight's dinner I had the end of a sweet potato left over so I cut some jagged edges into it and we used it as a vegetable stamp...

... I found a broken car so once youngest had completed some painting I told him to drive his car through it ...

... car painting ...

So THANK YOU very much to the crafty mum bloggers out there! 
You made our rainy day!

I'm glad the blog networking helped with this one. Absolutely, there are so many great ideas in blogland. I bet her loved the car paint driving at the end - that sounds like lots of fun.

Thanks for joining in this week. Lou.
