A Simple Hack of Belkin TuneTie for iPod

Image courtesy of

Pinot bought this product to manage our iPod Touch's earbud cord. Unfortunately, it wasn't fit for iPod Touch. We didn't realize, it only compatible with iPod old generation.

So we did a simple hack of it and have fun with the girls :D

Little Tote Bag

Mommy Creates : Lil' tote bag

Made this for my beloved girl, Arwen. She saw Dora the Explorer with her Backpack, then Arwen asked me to make it. But since I didn't know how to make a backpack, I just made her a little tote bag. And she loves it! She carries it everywhere she goes with her toys inside.

Newspaper Hats

We got this brilliant idea from Maya. What a wonderful way to recycle newspapers.

Crafting with Kids

We didn't have fresh/paper flowers to decorate the hats, so we made our own flowers style from scarps of fabric combined with ribbons.

My creation

You will need :
-Masking Tape
-Flower/Ribbon/Crepe Paper
-Glue, if you use Ribbon/Crepe Paper

And here's the steps ;). Enjoy!

Stitching with Kids

Our girls, Arwen and Leia really enjoy watching me sewing or stitching. They would get very excited and asked me some needles and threads to stitch on their own.

This is what they were doing, when I was busy with my sewing machine.

Colourful Mask

Crafting with Kids : Mask

Children enjoy pretending to be someone else and they also like dressing up. Masks will help them to take on a new personality ;).

Crafting with Kids : Mask

You can use a piece of paper or paper plate or cardboard to make a mask. Just glue strips of crepe paper or wool for hair to decorate it. And you can also paint it if your children desired.

Let your children's imagination go wild!!
