Milly-Molly-Mandy's Things to Make and Do

I promised in an earlier post to tell you more about a new book of mine.

Milly-Molly-Mandy's Things to Make and Do.
First of all... It looks cute doesn't it?!?

It was the cute front cover that had drawn me in.
If you ever come across a copy, do pick it up and have a flick through the lovely pages full of cute illustrations and wonderful ideas for things to make and do!

Among others you will find things to make and do ... outdoors, in the kitchen, in the spring, summer, autumn and winter. Plus games for sunny and rainy days too.

Being the greedy guts I am. I went straight for the "in the kitchen" pages,
where I found simple recipes for coconut ice and "no-cook fudge".

They were so simple that I thought I had to try them out for myself.

The coconut ice was delicious and even won over my sceptical husband!
The fudge however was nice, but very very sweet (not a problem for me of course)!

Next time i think I'll try the Sugar Mice recipe! Yum yum.

All in all a very sweet book. Perfect for little girls (and big ones too!!)

Thanks for reading.

Love Katie



  1. Ooh!! I loved Milly Molly Mandy as a child (in fact my daughter is called Millie)... need to have this book! A visual feast, Katie xxx

  3. Oh, I remember MMM with such fondness from my childhood. I'll look out for the book. M x

  4. I want that book! Jealous! Do make the sugar mice and show us, I'd love to see them xxx

  5. What an adorable book! I have a boxset of MM books from my childhood, love them:)

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, I am now following yours:)

  6. I used to love her too, though only read the stories, haven't seen this book. It looks wonderful, looking forward to seeing the mice and more. xx

  7. Haven't seen this book, but love Milly Molly Mandy (though from reading to my daughter rather than having them myself as a child) and will definitely look out for this as a result. Is there a crazy patchwork tea cosy in the book? The story of MMM making one in secret for her mother is one of my favourite stories! You have jogged my memory that I recently acquired a new, vintage MMM book which I haven't shared on my blog...

  8. That book may well have to go on my Christmas list!
    Your sweeties look very yummy..... looking forward to seeing your mice......

  9. oh I'm sat here drooling over pink coconut ice! The book looks fab! :)

  10. Now that is a a book to look out for!

  12. ooooooo that looks lovely!

  13. Oh I loved Milly Mollie Mandy when I was little. Your coconut ice and no cook fudge look very professional. Oh well if your hubby doesn't like it there's more for you, hee hee. Have a lovely week.
