Hours of creative fun with Playfoam

Messy hands, sticky hair, permanent hand prints on walls and stained carpets is every mother's nightmare! But with children at home can we expect anything else? 
Yes I say! We can definitely try to minimize the mess but not at the expense of the fun!
As a child we have all spent hour after hour imagining, creating and playing with clay. In our days we played with plain old clay that came in the form of different coloured bars in a box. Then came Playdoh! Oh all the things that could be created with the Paydoh sets. And now there's Playfoam. 


When I found out about Playfoam, and what they claimed was mess free clay, I wondered if it could really be true. How can a child play with something like clay without being messy?! But Playfoam is just that. Available in various colours in sparkle and plain variants, Playfoam is non toxic, non allergenic (no gluten, no proteins, no organic materials) and mess free. Playfoam is made up of lots of sticky foam balls, sticky enough to mold the foam into shapes, but not sticky enough to stick to skin,hair or anything else. Unlike other sand or dough based products, when you combine the colours, you are left with a really lovely mix of colours rather than everything turning into a grungy brown colour. Easy to mold, Playfoam is great for sensory play and fine motor skill development and is very therapeutic.

It provides hours of creative fun with its light weight, colourful foam sculpting material. The foam beads don't separate out, crumble nor does it dry out. So it can be reused over and over again. As claimed by the company "you can squish it, save it.....or smoosh it and start all over again." Overall, I think that Playfoam is a really amazing product to encourage children (and their parents) to enjoy some relaxing, mess free, creative play.
Playfoam is available exclusively at Angel in a crib

  1. Now this is an interesting product I did not know about. Must try it with my daughter. She loves playdoh, but I usually give her some chapati dough to play with since I'm worried about her putting them in mouth.

Barnyard Theme 2nd Birthday

Our son turned 2 last month and we decided to throw a Barnyard theme birthday party for him. After the Dr. Seuss themed first birthday party last year, this year we chose a theme he could relate to and enjoy. He can now recognize all farm animals and the sounds they make and Old MacDonald is one of his favourite nursery rhymes. It took weeks and weeks of preparations and that meant burning the midnight oil once again for us working parents, and a sabbatical for me from my blog for over 3 months. Here is all that we did and more.

Invitations:
Were made on photoshop by my husband and were sent out via email and whats app. We used the same invitations as reminders a week before the party for last minute rsvps.


Birthday Boy:
Ronav was dressed in denim overalls and a checked shirt to resemble a farmer in the barn, Mom and dad played their part too, wearing checked shirts and denims.


Barn Entrance:
Our main door was decorated to look like a barn door.

Paper Rosettes, Streamers: Were hand made …

Go Green with Snappi Diaper Fasteners!

If you're planning to go the cloth diaper route, Snappis are a must have! Made in South Africa, they are a great substitute for diaper pins and so much safer too. I cannot imagine trying to fumble around with safety pins while the baby is squirming.I love using my Snappi! This product makes using prefolds almost as easy as using disposables. In fact, they are so easy to use even daddy has figured them out! You can fasten the diaper with just one hand and they really stay. With snappis, I can easily close prefolds, flats, fitted flats, and non-snap fitteds! There's no metal and no chance of poking the baby. They are stretchy, reusable, and extremely durable. I've even washed a Snappi on accident and it was still perfect. The composition is 100% polyurethane ( thus safe for the baby). A single snappi can last you the life of diapering your child (as long as you don't lose it!). And to add to a list of pros, they come in a variety of boy, girl and neutral colors. Also, th…

Dr Seuss themed 1st Birthday!

It seems like yesterday that we brought our son Ronav home from the hospital, but a year has just flown by and all that we are left with are memories and lots of photos!
Since my husband and I are huge Dr Seuss fans, we decided to throw Ronav a themed birthday party to satisfy the child within us. The planning and execution took 2 months of burning the midnight oil as that was the only time we would get after putting Ronav to bed. All the decorations were hand made by us, only the balloons were outsourced. Here's how we did it.
The Invitations: Were sent via what's app and email 3 weeks before the party and was created on photoshop.



Reminders:  Were sent out 4 days before the party to get a better idea of the RSVPs. 

Thing 1 :
Ronav was Thing 1. We customized a T-shirt for him which read "Thing 1".




Mom & Dad of Thing 1 :
Mommy and Daddy got customized T-shirts too. They read "Mom of Thing 1" and "Dad of Thing 1".




Birthday Month Banner:  We took a …
