Our MARBELous Workshop 👑👑👑

Every day we do some fun great useful activities. For example today, we decorated cups using nail polish and water. Here are the instructions if you are planning to do it yourself:

Materials

  • Coffee mugs (other ceramic or glass items also work)
  • Nail polish
  • Toothpicks
  • Large container
  • Paper towel
  • Nail polish remover

How to Make Marbled Nail Polish Mugs

  1. Fill your container with hot water.
  2. Pour your nail polish into the water.
  3.  Take a toothpick and swirl the nail polish so it covers most of the water.
  4. Quickly dip your mug into the polish.
  5.  Take your mug out of the water and let it dry.

(Note: Handwash only.  The polish is likely to chip in the dishwasher.) Source

A ‘Berry’ good idea

One of the perks of living in Queensland (apart from the fantastic beaches, the great weather and everything else) is the quality of the fruit, especially the strawberries.

If you haven’t heard about it, strawberry farmers are having a very difficult time at the moment 😦 People no longer think that strawberries are safe and they are being forced to get rid of all of them!

However, The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation came up with a “berry” good idea. On Wednesday 26th September, there will be lots of EKKA Strawberry Sundaes for people to buy at King George Square and all the profits will go to strawberry farmers.

So make sure you stop by King George Square on Wednesday 26th September and get your strawberry sundae.

I am personally a huge fan of  J. R. R. Tolkien, so next activity is very close to my heart.   The one of a kind movie “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” is going to be shown  on a big screen (open air) today at 6.30 pm. Take you best friends and enjoy this great movie and beautiful Australian spring. More information here.
