creative kids – liquid chalk paint

Most kids love a squirty bottle.  Whether it’s in the bath full of bubbles, at the table full of sauce or, in this case, outside and full of chalk paint!

The recipe for paint is right here.  For an extra dash of excitement, the kids can add vinegar and watch it FIZZ!  This activity is great fun for kids of all ages.

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 – egg carton caterpillar

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!
