Ever since I started blogging over 2 years ago I have wanted to host my own linky party. Finally here it is! Welcome to Kids and Kreativity!
This is lovely activity for the kids to do. It involves two of my favourite things: crafting and growing plants from seed. Making these cute Cress Egg Heads is a really cool way to introduce the concept of food growing from seeds to our children. You can do this activity all year round, and as it only requires a small area of your windowsill it is something everyone can do.
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 alike!
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.
Those of you that are regular readers of my blog will know that I need very little excuse to get out my craft supplies. So with St Patrick’s Day around the corner, I thought I would make this cute Shamrock Paper Chain. It is currently hanging in the kids playroom, I just need to find a little leprechaun to sit with it!
Who doesn’t love a holiday! As our kids get older, and we get braver about taking them further afield, I feel my passion for travel and adventure returning. We’ve been lucky in the last few years to have done quite a lot of travelling. We’ve had lots of fun in our caravan ‘Clarabelle’ and last year we took the kids on an aeroplane for the first time. More recently James took me to New York for my birthday which was an amazing holiday in more ways than one!
I am always short of time. Working, blogging, being mum and now we have a wedding to organise in less than 5 months! I’m not complaining though I love it, but every now and then a helping hand is always appreciated. Which is where Shiply comes in.
World Book Day is just around the corner, and even though there is very little time, a fab costume does not have to cost you the earth. If you are stuck for inspiration for a Simple DIY World Book Day Costume then read on.
