Five for Friday (April 10)


Hi all, I’m joining in another week of Five for Friday, hosted by the lovely Doodlebugs Teaching!


Well, it’s the end of the last week of the holidays for me, but I’ve been fortunate enough to spend some quality time with this little cutie! Benny has had quite the busy last two weeks, making new friends (or, at least, learning how to), lots of travelling over Easter, and lots of cuddles. And yes, that black shadow of a thing lying against one of my best friends is Benny. He’s awfully difficult to take photos of sometimes, but it was kind of cute he had his teddy with him!


I’ve started a new online course on Hand Lettering over at Studio Calico, and so far I’m loving it. These were a few practise samples I did the other night!


I finally found (a tiny amount) of creative energy for my TpT store, and came up with this simple little activity to practise common nouns with early years students. Check it out in my store (both images link to the product).



How cute is that polka dot desk mat?! I’ve been eying it off for a few weeks and finally bit the bullet and bought it the other day. It’s so bright and colourful and it makes me happy!



I’ve had a few craft ideas on my to-do list these holidays and I’ve been slowly ticking them off, but this is one that I had a go at today (inspired by the Marbled Clay Ring Dish DIY from A Beautiful Mess). I really love how my little dish came out. Also, being one to loathe wasting scraps of FIMO clay, I use the excess trim from the bowl to make a matching bead necklace! I love that EVERY bead is completely different, despite being made from exactly the same materials!



Happy Friday, my friends! I hope you have an excellent weekend!

  1. Ummmm, I LOVE your Minnie-eared website!! I am a huge Disney fan, so it is fun to see other people incorporate Disney into their blogs! I also really like your Common Nouns bunting! Good luck on Monday! I am going back, too, and I am already tired just thinking of it! 🙂


    • Thanks so much, Erin! (I actually wear a pair of sequined-Minnie Mouse ears when I work with small groups – it’s my class’ signal that they can’t interrupt unless it’s an emergency!)

      Good luck on Monday! I hope that you have a wonderful start to the term!


  2. Well, it sounds like you were nicely creative over your break. Good for you to do some fun things like work with fimo. I love the stuff. Have a good week back next week. I, too, head back for our home stretch. See you around! Kathleen


  3. I love the noun bunting. So cute and I am sure that your students would love it. I absolutely LOVE that dish. It is great!
