With Christmas just around the corner, in our household we start to indulge in Christmas crafts. This is a really simple handmade Christmas card idea that even very young children can do with minimal parental input.
I love subscription boxes, and have recently reviewed a children’s recipe box and a bath bomb making kit. So when I saw a tweet from Crafty Creatives looking for crafty bloggers to review one of their monthly boxes, I was quick to reply.
What better excuse for getting crafty than Halloween! These easy Halloween wreaths are really effective and so simple to create, even for the novice crafter. They can decorate external doorways to welcome trick or treaters, internal doors, or even hang from light fittings as party decorations.
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.
I have always wanted to try making bath bombs, but it’s been on my craft to do list for a while now. The lovely people from Craftiosity sent me one of their monthly craft boxes to review. I was so excited when I found out that it was a bath bomb kit!
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.
