How to make a sun with paper

My children seem to draw suns all the time. Most of the time, the sun is smiling, and I remember drawing myself also smiling suns. Was it the same for you and your children?

Paul made this sun short time ago (no need of inspiration or help from my side!). It is just a circle cut in yellow paper, and then he cut stripes in red paper and glue it together. And then, of course, he draw a smily face into the circle.

Actually, we have always at home coloured paper, it is a great and easy way to do quite some crafts. Try is also and send me a message about how it went!

Welcome home!

We are back in Kigali!

We have spent four months in Europe, most of the time in the Netherlands with my parents in law. First days felt really strange, meeting people, opening suitcases and re-arranging the house. Now I am getting used to a our new life; with Nils everything is different! I have less freedom on coming and going because of the breastfeeding schedule; but it is worthwhile. More news to come!

Note: the lovely poster was made by my husband to welcome us at home; isn't it lovely?

Playing with fire

Children + Playing + Fire

I know, I know, and you do not need to convince me that children and fire are not a good combination!
But sometimes, I think it is not bad to stop overprotecting and get my children try things that might be seen as "dangerous". Like helping to make a fire. Why not? As long as they are under supervision, of course!

Paul learned a lot last summer with his grandfather. And he learned he needed to be careful with fire, and he should not come too close, etc. A good experience!
