crazy weet-bix cookies : for moo

Yesterday we made some Crazy Weet-bix Cookies, it's based on a traditional afghan cookie but I have always preferred to use Weet-bix instead of Cornflakes.


200grams butter
½ cup Sugar
¼  cups flour
¼ cocoa
4 Weet-bix broken up
½ cup coconut flakes or shredded
½ cup mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 180°c. Cream butter and sugar together. Sift if flour and cocoa into butter mixture. Stir in Weet-bix, coconut and marshmallows. Using your hands work into balls and flatten slightly on tray. Bake for 15mins.

The girls at work sure appreciated them and perfect for a little lunchbox treat for Moo. 

DIY : ribbon wand

Ribbon wands- so good for indoor play on raining days and homemade birthday presents.

You'll Need:
10mm dowel 
25mm  ribbon
15mm split ring
Small ring screw
Washi tape

Cut your dowel into wand lengths using a little saw - the standard length from hardware store is 1.8m, which makes into 4 x 45cm wands.
Sand the ends so they are nice and smooth.
Screw your ring screw into one end of the dowel - the dowel is soft so this is very easy.
Decorate your wand if you wish - this time I have used some cute washi tape my friend gifted me from a recent trip to Japan. I have also dip painted wand or left plain.
Cut a 2.5m length of ribbon, fold in half and thread through your split ring, create a loop and stitch in place. 
We''re ready for play!
