We have egg cartons coming out the wazooo at the moment. So I was a tad excited to find this easy, peasy project.

Just paint your egg carton, glue on googly eyes (which by now you’ll probably have in the craft box but, if not, just cut out white circles and add a black dot in the middle) then add curled pipe cleaners for antennae. Done!
Although we don’t celebrate Halloween in our home I’m going to get my boys to do this activity whilst I explain the tradition a little more to them.
The beauty of potato stamps is that you can make whatever shape, pattern or image you like! Simply cut out a raised section, or dig out a section, in the shape you want. It’s really only limited by your little one’s imagination.
These jack-o-lanterns are a great starting point! Easy peasy.
Few things make my heart sing more than colouring in with my kids. It truly is one of my favourite past times. Much to my delight, my 2 year old has just started showing lots of interest in colouring, so he and my middle sized have spent the day tucked in out of the rain and adding colour to the quirky illustrations from the fabulous scrufnuts colouring books.
It’s looking like an unusually cold and wet weekend ahead for many of us so I thought I’d share a few of our favourite colouring pages. If you’d like to download them, simply click on the image and then print from the page.
