creative kids – cardboard playhouses

DIY houses

We are loving these DIY Cardboard Playhouses.  You can find the tutorial here on lovely blog A Beautiful Mess.

You can decorate them however you like – how much FUN!


craft express – peg christmas trees

Look what we made today …

Using this stuff …

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.


craft express – loo roll snakes

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.
