Empty milkboxes are a very good material for kid’s crafting. If you show a bit of fantasy, you will find out that the milkboxes can be helpful for making, for example, nice houses that children will be able to use in their games. So don’t hurry to threw them away! To make such a house you need to open the top of the box and remove the plastic cap from the packaging. Attach the wallpaper round the packaging with glue or double sided tape. Cut off any excessive paper. Then draw windows, doors and roof on a paper and cut out. Attach them. Also you can make a hole on the rear side of the house and put a car or a doll in it. Maybe your imagination will allow you to come up with more exclusive houses from the milkboxes. Good luck!
Pink and aqua color combination took on the popular in nursery design for baby-girls. Maybe somebody won’t like this color combination, personally I don’t mind. Aqua color makes the nursery light and tender, and pink color adds brightness and some spice. Most of all I liked the lounge with a reading nook. It doesn’t have a designer’s emphasis, therefore it looks as if being lost in the overall nursery design. But when a glance falls on translucent pink curtains, appears a desire to get inside. Moreover, this room can be modernized by exchanging a baby crib on a small bed, when a child is three or four years.The baby room turned out bright and funky with personalized touches and plenty of place for playing.

Such holidays are remembered for a long time because of their original theme and good pastime. Well, how to make a knight’s costume quickly and without much expense? Make a template for a knight’s tunic using a kid’s shirt, then cut out and sew front and back parts of the tunic. Cut out a cross from some felt. Pin to the front of the tunic and sew around the edges to attach. As the tunic is made of fleece, the edges won’t fray, so you don’t need to hem the bottom, the neckline and armholes.
