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!

With Halloween around the corner, it’s a great excuse to do some ghost crafts. I’ve been meaning to try out some ghosts for a few years, but just never got around to it. So this is my first attempt, and I was really pleased with the outcome. I have a feeling ghost crafts will be featuring in our Halloween celebrations for years to come!
This is a very simple how to. This ribbon hair band can be made with only a few tools, and all the necessary materials are easily obtainable at your local haberdashery or fabric shop. It made my little princess very happy!
This is an easy craft idea for decorating blown eggs as Humpty Dumpty. Something fun that the kids can do which doesn’t involve chocolate over the Easter period! Best to leave the blowing of the eggs to an adult or older children though as it can be a bit tricky.
