Clangers planet

As you probably know by now the Clangers are back on Cbeebies

For Tim’s 3rd birthday he had a set of Clangers and both boys then saw on the back of the packet that you could get a Clangers planet.

I decided that they love using their imagination and that if I bought them the official planet at some point, that there would be little need for imagination, so we started a project, it took a few weeks to complete, but we now have our own planet and somewhere to store the Clangers when not being played with.

We started with an empty shoe box


Cut the sides down, ensuring that they would be able to be folded up and the lid put back on for storage


Then the boys set to work adding rocks, doors for the bedrooms and a soup well


Now came the very sticky and messy part


Then we had to leave it almost a week to dry, the boys were very generous with the glue!

and finally the Clangers had somewhere to play and live


The boys have had loads of fun and at some point we are thinking of adding something into the lid as well.


Magic Moments

Today I am taking part in The Oliver’s Madhouse, Magic moments linky

I have 2 which I am going to share as they are both vaguely cake related!


If you are a follower of this blog you will know that my youngest Tim is allergic to dairy.

This might not sound like that magical a moment to most, but for me it felt very magical.

While pouring icing onto a cake Sammy thought it was milk and tried to stop me as in his words

STOP Mummy, milk Mummy, Timmy can’t have milk

It certainly felt magical to know that Sam is learning and understanding and more importantly watching out for his little brother.


Again this is about Sammy.

Saturday night I put him to bed explaining how it would be Daddy’s birthday the next day.

Sunday morning Daddy popped into his bedroom, as he left there was a little voice shouting


it might have been a little bit late as Daddy had left the room, but it’s the thought that counts and was definitely a very magical moment for Daddy, being wished a happy birthday by his 2year old with no one telling him to do it.

So what has your most recent magical moment been?
