Mike and Sulley, Mummies phone and Pipe Cleaners

My eldest daughter has a slight obsession with Monsters Inc.  We are currently on our second copy of the DVD as she has worn out the first.  She saw in the shops a packet of bun mix with Monsters Inc on the box.  Then came the prompt of Mummy I want Mike and Sulley cakes.

Today we made our Mike and Sulley cakes.  I am not one normally for pre mixed ingredients I like to experiment and make myself but on the odd occasion I do not mind.  So we got to work mixing the ingredients in a bowl

I normal crack the egg for her but today she wanted to try herself.  So I gave her an egg, brave move.   She squeezed it and nothing happened, she tapped it with a spoon and it cracked.  She was ever so pleased with herself.

She mixed all the ingredients together and placed the mixture into the bun cases.  After the cakes had cooked and cooled down we set about icing them and sticking on our Monsters inc pictures.  When she got to the picture of Randall she said, 'Randall Naughty'.

I love that she made these cakes all by herself and that she recognised the characters from Monsters inc.

That afternoon I noticed her playing with my phone.  She had discovered the camera.  I scrolled through all the photos she took and this one I really love

I just love that she managed to take a photo of herself and her sister with me in the background.

A crafty activity which I found on Pinterest occupied both girls for the rest of the day.  My eldest had some pipe cleaners in an activity pack.  Getting a little fed up of making snakes, worms and caterpillars I had looked for another activity to do and this is when I found this

My eldest would pass the pipe-cleaners through the holes on the sieve to create patterns and then we would turn it over to pull the 'wriggly worms' which my youngest thought was rather fun.  I cannot believe how something so simple has kept both girls entertained for so long as we played this game for most of the afternoon.

This day I love Mike and Sulley, Mummies phone and Pipe cleaners
