DIY Rainbow Heart Hair Clips

The Pride parade is coming up this weekend in San Francisco and my girls are super excited to get decked out in their rainbow gear and go along to watch.

We've got rainbow t-shirts, rainbow socks, rainbow tattoos, and now thanks to this super simple DIY, we've got rainbow hair clips!



These heart shaped rainbow hair clips were so easy to make that the kids were pretty much able to do everything by themselves - and they had a lot of fun making them. They're keen to make more of them in different colors for different events and holidays. And just for fun!


Here's a look at how we made them...

Rainbow Kids' Clothes for Pride

June is LGBTQ Pride month. The biggest celebration of the month here in San Francisco is the Pride parade which is coming up in just over a week's time. Last year I took Lola and Mathilde along to watch the parade and they absolutely loved it. Such a happy community event full of love and so much color. This year Ava and Kim are keen to come along with us too as are my parents who will be visiting from Australia. You can see all the color and fun from last year's parade here.



In preparation for the Pride parade, I've been looking into fun rainbow colored outfits for the girls to wear. There are so many fun rainbow options out there so I thought that today I'd share some of my favorites here on Little Hiccups. These clothes and accessories are perfect for the Pride parade as well as adding a touch of rainbow to your kids' every day closet - because let's face it, rainbows make everything better!


Ava and I will both be wearing this great retro style t-shirt from Pride Socks. It is available in sizes from toddler through to adults in both red and purple and is oh-so soft and comfy.

This great t-shirt is available in kids', womens' and mens' sizes. Gap will donate 30% of the net sales from this t-shirt to the United Nations to support Free & Equal, a UN Human Rights Office campaign for LGBTI equality. 

Lola and Mathilde will both be wearing this fun t-shirt from Mitz Accessories. The rainbow colors are wonderful and vibrant, but the best part is the felt cloud that runs down the back of the t-shirt! My girls absolutely love it. It's available in sizes 0-3 months up to 7 years. 

All three of my girls have these fun tube socks that add a sporty touch of rainbow to any outfit. They are available in baby sizes through to adult sizes in various rainbow patterns. 

It's going to be sunny at the parade so don't forget to bring a hat. This great hat is actually an adult size, but will fit older children as well. It's available in black and white with various rainbow striped patterns.

Local company Hello Shiso makes the cutest hair accessories for kids. These rainbow clips are just perfect for Pride - and any other day of the year!

When the tube socks just aren't enough rainbow for you these colorful socks are a great choice. I'll be rocking a pair of these at this year's parade. These socks are available in women's and men's sizes, but older kids would be able to wear them too.

The dress version of the t-shirt that Lola and Mathilde will be wearing to the Pride parade is just as cute and also features the fun felt cloud down the back. Like the t-shirt, it is available in sizes from 0-3 months through to 7 years. This print is also available in tank tops (with the felt cloud) and leggings.

Tattly make the best temporary tattoos out there. This rainbow set features 8 fun rainbow designs and has been a favorite with my girls for many years.

The San Francisco Pride parade will be held on Sunday June 25th, kicking off at 10:30am. For parade information click here.

I hope to see you there!

Maker Faire 2017

A few weekends back we spent a day at one of my favorite festivals: Maker Faire.

As always, the day was filled with all sorts of creative fun. The girls made art from salvaged junk, rode crazy bikes, made replica cells out of foam clay, dressed up as robots, ate delicious treats, and watched all sorts of crazy things shoot flames.


   
As always, it was pretty hot when we arrived at Maker Faire, so this year we headed straight inside one of the halls full of fun hands-on activities and demonstrations to escape the heat. There were all sorts of activities to keep the girls busy.
