I originally made these lovely easy tin can holders for a baby shower I threw on a teeny tiny budget. Since then I’ve used them a lot for a little rustic decoration. They are cheap and easy to make and are a pretty way to recycle old tin cans.
So an amazing friend of mine set up a volunteer group who go into the local hospital 3 times a week to entertain and play with the children who are stuck on the wards. I’ve been a part of this for several months and was recently given the opportunity to take on more responsibility, and start planning and running sessions. It’s actually insanely fun. The kids that we have at these sessions are aged from 0-17, have a variety of abilities, from being bed bound or paralysed to running, screaming and jumping all over the place. This not only makes the sessions challenging, it makes chosing activities for the kids pretty tricky! We always try to have a bunch of activities to suit different abilities and ages and interests.
I’d seen a ton of posts about making canvas art using melted crayons, and I just had to give it a go! It seemed so simple and easy, even I could do it.
It turned out ok… I like what I made but definitely something I need more practice with!
My housemates birthday is today and we always make cakes for eachother. I had to make the cakes back home and travel back to London on the train with them, so I figured cupcakes would be easiest.
