All you need for this activity is scrap paper, scissors, glue and imagination.
This is a great activity for all ages – just change the level of detail for older kids.
You know we love a splash of colour around here. Check out this neon heart cushion you and the kids can make together following this tutorial. Go on, give it a try …
These gorgeous felt bunny puppets are a great Easter activity and ideal for little ones just learning to sew. Just follow the tutorial on gorgeous blog The Purl Bee. Enjoy!
We are stepping things up a little today with this fab reindeer head project! Love this guy …
Look what we made today …
All you will need are some old boxes (any cardboard would do), a few little gems from the craft box (think pom poms, glitter, confetti, star stickers) and some wooden pegs.
Simply cut out* cardboard triangles (you can get a bit fancy here if you like), colour in or paint, glue on decorations of your choice and clip wooden peg to the bottom.
* Obviously littler ones would need assistance with cutting out but the rest is manageable for any age from toddlers to grown ups.
We know you love some loo roll craft as much as we do so here is another fab idea to use up all those rolls!
Follow this tutorial to whip up your own googly eyed darlings, just like these.
Imagine how much fun your little ones could have building a decorating their own cardboard box house, just like this one?
Grab some of your recycling, some glue and your imaginations. If you want more inspiration you can follow these guidelines.
Happy building! x
Got 20 minutes and want to get the kid’s into something creative? There is a bit of cutting involved in this one so they’ll need some ‘grown up’ help but I’m sure you will agree this sweet little project is worth a bit of your time.
Have the kids draw a house on paper then, depending on their age, they can cut around the edge and you help with the windows (a scalpel would save a lot of time here). They can embellish however they like with colouring in, pasting patterned paper and other bits and pieces on, adding glitter – whatever they like!
Then all you need to do is attach to the window with double sided tape. You could also use contact instead of paper for the house then stick the whole thing to the window for a more permanent option.
Summer time is officially here so I thought this little gem was worth sharing. My boys can have HOURS of fun with water balloons – filling them, throwing them and, now, using them as a pinata!
Simply fill the balloons with water, attach them to a high string or surface (the washing line is great!) and then bash away with a broomstick until they burst and shower the kids with water. Much better than lollies in my opinion!
I love any idea that helps kids use their imagination and own initiative. Here is a fab example of one such activity! Simply cut out a small section of an image from a magazine or photo, paste it on the page and let the kids finish it off however they choose.
