Our home has officially been invaded by the dreaded cold lurgy! Both kids have now been struck down with awful, fuzzy colds.  Izzy is generally coping fairly well and still manages to play a bit, but Boo just wants to lay on the sofa under his blanket and be cuddled 😦

So whilst Boo was napping on the sofa I decided to spend some time with Izzy developing her creative skills.  I dug out an ‘iron-on crayon’ set that we were given a while ago.  Izzy has begun to show an interest in crayons and really loves making marks on paper.  I thought that it would be nice to capture the moment in a bit of a different way…

There are many different products like this available from any good art and craft retailer but the one we’d been given contained the crayons, tracing paper and doodle sheet (plus instructions).

When we were done with our doodling I grabbed one of Izzy’s white onesies and used a hot iron to fix the crayon picture to it.



Definitely one to keep!
