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.
If you are regular to this blog, you will know that we love a bit of crafting. So when I had the opportunity to review this complete card kit from Stampin’ Up! how could I refuse!
Ahhhh! It’s Father’s Day on Sunday. Are you all organised? Or are you like me and leave everything to the last minute. Well don’t despair because we’ve used a little of our imagination and come up with this really simple homemade Father’s Day gift. A jar of essentials for Father’s Day, what more could any daddy want? It’s so simple you can rustle it up in no time at all, using things that you probably have lying around the house already. I have even included a FREE download of the jar label and daddy voucher to make this homemade Father’s Day gift even speedier to put together.
As an amateur preserve maker, I seem to have a lot of these jam jar lids kicking around. I hate throwing things away so I kept hold of them hoping that one day inspiration would find me and give me an idea of what to do with them. Well inspiration struck and I decided to make these cute up cycled jam jar lid flowers to decorate a boring piece of fence in our garden.
This is a really simple easter artwork project, suitable for pre-school or primary school age children. We did this a few weeks ago as Isla’s entry for her school Spring artwork competition. Read on to find out how we got on.
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!
This is a really simple tutorial to make your own twine heart. These twine hearts are a great rustic home decor, and I have several dotted around our house. They would also be ideal as a wedding decoration, or make a great gift for a friend or loved one.
