I remember doing paper mâché as a child with newspaper and flour and water. This Paper Mâché Hot Air Balloon craft uses the same principles, but we used tissue paper and watered down glue instead. I prefer this method and it’s great fun for the children and adults a like!
Who doesn’t love butterflies! These super cute Peg Butterflies are really simple to make, and look very effective. The beauty of them is you can still use them as pegs, so they are pretty and functional too. We are going to make a load up and use them to hang the children’s artwork in the playroom. Or you could simply have them as decorations.
I love making things from everyday objects, and this Paper Plate Easter Basket was a lot of fun to make. It’s a fab simple craft to do with the kids in time for Easter, and they can even use it on their egg hunts.
I love a snow globe, always have done. Not sure why really, maybe it’s the glitter, maybe it’s the magic of them, who knows. I’ve been meaning to try and make my own snow globe for a while, and finally I got round to it. It is surprisingly easy, and requires very little in the way of materials. If you want to give it a go yourself then read on.
I am always keen to get outside whatever the weather, and find some outdoor activities for the whole family. So this weekend I decided to take the kids on a footprint hunt, in the hope that we could make some nice plaster casts of any we found.

This month unsurprisingly it’s all about Autumn, Halloween and Bonfire night! We have already done quite a few Halloween themed crafts, so we though we would try our hand at some simple bonfire night collages.
This is yet another great rainy day activity. Play slime is really easy to make, with the base being 3 simple ingredients that you may already have at home. The slime itself is very tactile, and can provide hours of entertainment for your little ones.
I’m thrilled to say that we are now part of the Bostik blogger team, where each month we are sent a box full of themed crafty goodies to inspire us on our next craft project.
For our first month, the theme is Monsters! and who doesn’t love a monster. Monsters are great because you can really let your imagination run wild. They can be any colour, shape that you want and as cute or scary as you desire.
