craft express – send a hug

We are loving this simple (and fast) idea kids of all ages can enjoy making.  Makes a fab gift to send to grandparents, friends and other family members who love hugs!

Go on.  Send someone a hug.  It only takes a few minutes and will make their day!


easy lovin …

Want to share the love with your little one?  I have put together a collection of my favourite lovey dovey creative ideas – hope you love them too!

Cut out hearts from tissue or silk paper (or whatever paper you love), add string to each one and attach them to a dowel rod or tape straight onto the window frame as they have done here.  So pretty when the light shines in …

To create this little bunch of love, cut out various sizes of hearts in different papers, glue together, add a pipe cleaner stem and place into plasticine inside a decorated loo roll vase!  Voila!

This little felt creation is a bit trickier but if you follow the visual instructions you will find your way to a lovely little Christmas decoration, or just a reminder of love.

Need a cute card to add to all these little treasures you and your little one have made?  Check out this one!  All you need is some paper or card, a hand and some scissors!  Easy peasy.

And one last little picture I just loved and had to share …
