It’s raining here. Cats and dogs. My boys have completed two games of rugby before 9.30am and we are now home, showered, fed and bunkered down for the rest of the day. A bit of easy craft (the kind I don’t have to think about too much) is definitely on the cards.
Here are 5 easy peasy ideas …
Duplo painting – everyone has their own plate with paint blobs on it. Choose duplo blocks of different sizes, along with wheels, and you will have a great little masterpiece in no time at all! (courtesy picklebums.com)
Collect some leaves from the backyard or park and glue them onto pages to make animal shapes, Add eyes, arms or legs as required and, voila! We love this fish. (courtesy marthastewart.com)
Balloon ping pong – add a paddle pop stick to a paper or plastic plate, blow up a balloon and play away! (courtesy theweekendhomemaker.com)
Lanterns – cover a glass jar with pretty paper then use a small flameless candle to play with it outside in the evening! If raining, it also makes a gorgeous centrepiece for the dinner table! (courtesy picklebums.com)
Love, love, love the fish drawing, how gorgeous! My boys will love doing this!
That’s fab Kate! Send us a photo when they are done! x
Thanks for sharing my posts… glad you enjoyed them! Just a heads up the first link goes to the lantern post instead of the duplo painting 🙂
Thanks so much for the heads up Kate. I have fixed that up now. And thanks for your GREAT blog which I (obviously) just love! x
