I arrived at Camden Town (somewhere i hadnt been since my teenage years) and found Tea and Crafting where we were supposed to meet up with everyone for our day of craft. As usual i was late, but in my defence there was so much to see in Camden Town and i did get a bit
Tamara Melvin along with Psychologist Emma Kenny. We were given a lamp and shown how to turn it into a lamp for our children, so the idea of the lamp was to make the children feel grown up and be able to get up and go to the toilet in the night without feeling scared. The lamps have the childrens toys stuck on them for familiarity and are painted in their favourite colour (Tillys is Yellow). I will be posting a tutorial on making a lamp at the weekend.
We also made a pin board to hang in your childs nursery, although most parents
decided they wanted them for themselves! This was so simple to make and took less than an hour, but is so affective and would make a brilliant homemade christmas gift that you can make with your child for someone at christmas. I always say, if it looks half good, then admit you made it together with your child, if it looks a bit of a hash i always say Tilly made it herself ;)
here and you can get advice for children 7+ here.
Anyway it was so good for everyone to get together and share advice and Tips. It was great to have so
many people to offer advice and Both Emma and Tamara have children of their own so their advice also comes from their own experience.
For advice and a free sample pop over to www.drynites.co.uk. we had a great day and we will have a tutorial of the pin board and lamp to follow soon :)
