David Bowie 1947-2015

There's a starman, waiting in the sky...

Bowie, you well and truely did blow our minds. 

I couldn't post today without giving tribute to another star in the sky. When I think of my childhood, I can't count how many hours I've spent listening to his music, and The Labaryth is up there as one of my most watched films. Even now I often find myself jumping around with the Zebra singing "Dance magic dance". He is a genuine legend.

Today we decided to have a Star theme, and wanted to make something bright and happy. We tried a craft similar to this at Halloween, but with paint, and it was an epic fail, so this time we tried it with glitter.

Holding a paper star against the card, I covered everything in pva glue. When the star was lifted, it left a perfect, clean shape in the centre. 

Time to get the shake-shake out and let the Zebra loose with the glitter!

Once she got bored, I made sure the whole paper was covered in different coloured glitter. 

Shake off the excess, and you are left with a shining star! 

The zebra also enjoyed some time playing with the glue and glitter to make some sparkly footprints and played with the sticky star I used as a stencil.


  1. It's such a great loss to his family and to his fans. I am loving the 'star' theme.

  2. I love kid's crafts! This is adorable.

  3. I love this.I am always looking for crafts for the grandkids.

  4. It's awesome that you are so willing to let your little one get messy with the crafts! I'm such a neat freak and we always do craft projects outside so there is less clean up, haha. Luckily I live in Cali and there are very few days where the weather doesn't cooperate.

  5. Thank you for sharing. I remember these days of crafts with my little ones, when they were little.

    David Bowie was and still is a true icon. I really respected the love him and Iman share. Sad he's gone, but also glad I was able to witness a portion of his gift. Great post.

  6. Bowie is such an iconic figure of my childhood. I was always transfixed by his flamboyancy and talent. *sigh* what a hard loss.

  8. Bowie was incredible. He will be missed!

    P.S. Your kiddo is so stinking adorable!
