We are lucky enough to be 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.
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.
This little craft was prompted again by one of our local horticultural shows. There was a class for a decorated wooden spoon for children aged between 5-7 years. We have decorated wooden spoons in the past, and the kids loved it, so Isla was really keen to enter. When I asked her what animal she wanted to turn her wooden spoon into, she of course said a Flamingo! Or mingo as she calls them, her favourite animal (probably because they’re pink!). So together we crafted this little wooden spoon flamingo.
This is a really lovely simple kids craft to make a paper plate Bumble Bee. It is equally suited to both pre-school children and primary school age children. You would just need more parental involvement with the younger kids. Perfect for rainy days in the holidays.
This is a great rainy day craft to get the kids involved with, using simple craft materials that you may have lying around. The kids loved getting involved and loved playing with their little snappy crocodiles at the end of it. I just need to think of more animals we can make!
I was asked to take part in the Christmas Stocking Blogger Challenge in conjunction with Turtle Mat, and of course I said yes. Christmas and crafting with a competition too! I’m really pleased with our finished stocking, read on to find out how we got on!
I love Halloween, and this year with a little more free time on my hands, I’ve gone all out! The kids have loved helping with these simple Halloween crafts to decorate the house in time for our little party. Here are 4 simple ideas for making Halloween inspired decorations that the kids can get involved with.
