Little Moments - June 2016

It has been a while since I have done a monthly photo summary. So no time like starting with June. This month has been about settling back into UK life with lots of stay at home play for the boys. A kid-free wedding, crazy weather and last but not least this month Seb turned the big 3!

Sebby is 3! - BBQ Beach Party

For Seb's third birthday he wanted a BBQ beach party. So I bought a load of sand and transformed most of our garden into a mini beach, as you do. It may not look like a lot of sand but it was enough. This stuff is heavy and it was no fun lugging all those bags around. And I am glad we didn't try to cover the whole garden. We would have needed like 3 tonnes of the stuff! And I would have been demanding everyone take some sand home!

Eyefi memory card - My Gear

Since our travels, I have been out of sync with routine. Not that I am good with routine in the first place! And when travelling I don't like taking my laptop so when we went to New York I bought an eyefi card. It is an SD memory card with wifi that allows you to transfer photos straight from your camera, to any digital device, in my case my phone. Then using a few image editing apps I could then upload them to Instagram while out and about.

How to turn kids artwork into printed books

Your little artist is creating masterpieces left right and center and now you have enough to fill the tate modern! So what do you do with it all? Currently, I am storing my fine art in a picnic basket!

There are many other ways to save and display your kids work. Some file all their hardcopy work in a folder. Some cut up the artwork to make other artwork. But I prefer to put it all in a book. It is clean and tidy. You can tell a story by adding photos of your kids in midst creation of their masterpieces. And it is also great for those hard to store, 3D creations that linger on your mantelpiece.
