Last weekend we tried out a really easy lava lamp experiment, both my kids love trying out simple science experiments and ones that make fun things happen are always a winner!
I’m very excited to have Maggy for Red Ted Art guest posting today with some fabulous winter crafts to make with kids. If here was a queen of kids crafts it would have to be Maggy, her site is always the one I see mentioned by friends and so I’m really happy to have her share some ideas with you too. I’m sure you’ll find something just perfect for keeping the kids busy during this colder weather!
Sometimes my kids demand that we must make something right here right now and this simple polar bear craft for kids is the result of this weeks demands! I’ve shared some arctic animal crafts for kids before and my son has been desperate to make a polar bear, perhaps it’s the cold weather at the moment? Paper plate crafts are always among my favourites as they’re just so easy and cheap to make and this activity is an absolute winner as we put it together just using things we found around the house.
I love crafts that I can do along side my kids and this DIY money box was a great craft that we could all enjoy. After all, why should the kids get to do all the fun stuff! With the start of a new year I’m always keen to make sure that as a family we all try and be a bit more financially savvy, whether it’s with me making sure that I save enough for the school holidays or making sure that the kids know that toys and sweets don’t just magically appear when you ask for them. These DIY money boxes are a great way to have fun crafting together while also having a sneaky little chat about money! I’m also sharing 6 of my favourite DIY money box ideas today so make sure you check those out at the end of the post too!
My kids have always loved messy play activities and from all the parent and toddler groups I’ve visited over the years I know they’re not alone!
