If you haven’t read it, you must. It’s a perfect children’s book that has little jokes in it for the grown ups. Boys will love it, just like William does because it’s packed with dinosaurs, volcanoes, vampires, and aliens. So there is lots of potential for themed activities. Our first day of the summer holidays I introduced William to his own Professor Steg
(one of the main characters in the book) and together we made strawberry milk shakes.

elephant snacks and jack rabbit food.
I made the cake using a tin I had kept from my eldests 1st birthday and covered it with green icing a sprinkles. Then we raided the toy box for all the plastic animals and after a good scrub they looked great strolling across the savannah of cake.
I used animal crackers to decorate cupcakes that I had topped with green icing and any kids party isn’t complete without some chocolate birds nest cakes.
To try and balance out all the cake we also had a fruit rainbow and this turned out to be one of the most popular snacks on the table.
Finally I’d seen a great vegetable lion on Pinterest and thought I’d have a go. As you can see mine was a bit of a fail but I’ve included it anyway to show it’s not always perfect.
If you want to see the inspiring Veg lion it’s on my Pinterest jungle party board along with a lot of other great ideas.
i have been working on some new embroidery designs and also wanted to try stitching them in more of a variety of stitched as I tend to just stick to back stitch. This aboriginal inspired lizard design I have sewn in chain stitch and work the spots in satin stitch.
I am hoping to work on a set of these and will put the designs in my Etsy shop soon.
