Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

One of my daughter’s favourite nursery rhymes is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, so today I thought it would be nice to make this cute little star mobile / hanger type thingy. We hung it up at her window at bedtime.

What You Need:

  • Paper
  • Felt Tip Pens
  • Laminator (Optional)
  • Hole Punch
  • String
  • Beads
  • Scissors
  • Pipe Cleaner

Get your children to colour pieces of A4 paper with abstract designs (both sides), or alternatively you can print off the patterned pages below and get them to colour those in (click on the small image to open a printable version in a new window).

Once the pages are coloured in, lay on cut out star templates, draw around them and cut them out. You will need one big star and several smaller ones of varying sizes and styles. Click on the pictures below to open a printable version of the star templates in a new window.

Once you have your stars all cut out laminate them if you have access to a laminator (if not, just skip this part).

In the large star punch a hole at each point and for the smaller stars punch a hole in one of the points.

Build up your mobile with the large star at the top piece – use the pipe cleaner to form a hanging hook and attach the smaller stars to the larger one with string alternating with beads for a really pretty and unique piece.

I used gold string and metallic beads for a glitzy effect but you can embellish with sequins or introduce the element of sound with small bells that can be picked up from most haberdasher shops.

Travel Nappy Pouch

Stylish, pretty and practical, this handy little pouch serves as a perfect alternative to a big bulky baby bag when all you need is a few nappies, wipes and perhaps a small tube of cream on your journey. Perfect for quick trips or to keep in the car or at Gran’s house for emergencies. The pouch can of course also be used for a multitude of other purposes once you are past the nappy stage.

Would also make a lovely handmade gift for a new baby.



Will fit all standard sizes of disposable nappies (around 4) or 2 – 3 cloth ones so long as they are not too bulky, additional room allowed for a standard packet of baby wipes.

The pouch is made from a lively red gingham and cream polka dot print fabric and embellished with a love heart patch in white and blue floral print. Comes fully lined in matching cream polka dot cotton and fastens with a red gingham Velcro strap across the top which is left open so you are able to see how many nappies you have left at a glance. Each piece is lovingly finished with a hand embroidered Lily P Chic label in pink, black and white.

Crafts for Kids: Ladybugs

This cute little cardboard ladybug is a fun and easy peasy craft idea for you to make with your kids.

What you Need:

  • Red and Black Card
  • White Paper
  • Glue
  • Hole Punch
  • Scissors

  1. Use a beaker as a template to draw circles onto the red and black card. Cut these out, leave some of the black ones whole and cut the rest of the black and all of the red ones into half circles.
  2. Use a hole punch to create white and black circles from the paper and the scraps from the black card.
  3. Make a ladybug yourself as an example to show the children by starting with a full black circle as the body. Glue a black half circle along the top for the head, two partially open red half circles as the wings and then add the ladybugs spots and eyes.
  4. Sort all of the pieces into pile, hand over some glue sticks and let the kids make their own!

Suggestion: Sellotape string to each bug, hang them to a washing line and watch them flutter in the breeze.
