Spring in your step. September 01 2017, 0 Comments


Nothing beats a Spring clean; out with the old and in with the new. Spring also brings with it, a new mindset, a burst of energy and a sense of wanting to get organised and do something a little fresh and creative -  whether it be in your home, with your babies or in your working world.

In most parts of South Africa, it is warming up a little and the shorts and dresses are starting to make an appearance so at the forefront of ‘getting organised’, we have a great suggestion; get your babies’ clothing sorted. Just Plastics, Game and places alike, sell clear, roughly 56 litre, storage boxes which make the most ideal storage space for your little people’s ‘outgrown’ clothing. This size storage box is tried and tested and also fits beautifully into a cupboard, stacked one on top of each other.

Gather up the batches of clothes into their correct size groups, box and label accordingly; newborn, 0-3m, 3-6m, 6-12m and so on. This will also be a great opportunity to “cull the herd” of clothes that won’t serve a purpose for the next baby (if you are planning on another one). If you are feeling super energetic then do this with the toys too.

Spring also delivers some delicious seasonal fruit, so we thought it would be a great idea to make your own ice-lollies. Cut the fruit up into manageable bite size pieces and get your little ones to help drop them into water to freeze. Not only is it a fun activity but also a great way to get your child to eat fruit if they are a tad on the fussy side at this stage.

Whatever puts a spring in your step this season, take a look at our new collection. A collection that is inspired by the warmth of Spring and the soft, beautiful sunshine. A time to be outside, with your feet on the grass or your hands in the sand.

For little people who want to be comfortably stylish in locally made, 100% cotton baby clothing. A collection created for dazzling little girls and dapper little boys. Penguins. Whales. And little fish. That’s what it’s all about this spring!

Kapas Baby - going green

We have declared March a “green month” for two very good reasons. Firstly, to save money and spoil your baby with our Green Special (our version of a ‘pot of gold’ - see discount code below). Secondly, we love to celebrate a holiday and St Paddy’s day is on the horizon! With the green festivities in mind, we thought to inspire a little DIY, something easy and entertaining for your little one.

For this exercise, all you need are four corks, ribbon, paper and a little blob of non-toxic green paint. Now, while we discovered this idea on a site called, we thought to put our own Kapas spin on it and turn their 3-leafed clover into our lucky 4-leaf clover! (See below the simple “step-by-step”)

Kapas Baby - DIY

STEP 1. Tie 4 corks together with a piece of bright ribbon.

STEP 2. Dip the cork combo into the non-toxic green paint and dab onto your piece of paper.

STEP 3. Show your little one first and then guide their hands to mimic the process.

STEP 4. Add the stems onto the 4-leafed clovers.

This may look ridiculously easy, and it is, but trust us, your little one will love the creativity and fun, messy, playtime. Another little value add would be that children thrive off being outside so playing outdoors, in our opinion, is the ultimate crafting combo and as this activity requires no real engineering from your corner, make it as entertaining as possible; music up, suncream & hats on, green (non-toxic) paint out!
