These free Christmas printables all shared on last weeks Tuesday Tutorials are a great idea if you’re looking for some cheap crafts and activities for Christmas. There are free cupcake topper printables, downloadable crackers and gift tags as well as printable pictures that can be used for gifts. This is such a great little resource I’m already excited about returning to it next year!
Folks, are you ready for Christmas? I totally am! I mean, obviously I haven’t bought a single Christmas present yet, or even thought about them. And it’s a bit unclear what we’re doing as a family, but crafting wise? Bring it on! We’ve been making loads here and from the stuff that’s being linked up to Tuesday Tutorials it looks like you guys are too. This week I’m sharing some Christmas sensory bins that were linked up last week, just because I thought they looked really cool and good fun for the small people. Hope you love them too.
Welcome back to Tuesday Tutorials, how is it Tuesday again already?! Last week there was a flurry of last minite Thanksgiving ideas as well as people already starting to think about Christmas. As anyone knows who makes things for Christmas, you need to start planning well in advance, so with that in mind I thought I’d share some Christmas gifts using recycled materials. After all, Christmas is an expensive time of the year, so if you can fit in some recycled or upcycled crafts why not?!
I’m taking a week off my normal crafty shares for Tuesday Tutorials this week to showcase these awesome engineering activities for kids. As a mum I make a lot of stuff with my kids, but I do wonder sometimes if I lean too much towards the arts and crafts side of things, heck, I even had to quickly google to see if there’s a difference between engineering and construction for this post. (Don’t tell my Civil Engineer dad!) I love these fun ideas though which I’m hoping will inspire me to do a few more engineering activities at home too!
This last week I took part in the 31 Days of ABCs challenge so when I looked through last weeks entries to Tuesday Tutorials and saw so many on an educational theme it seemed like a great excuse to do a round up on fun ways to teach the alphabet. It’s a subject that’s close to my heart at the moment as I know it’s something I need to work on with my son, but I’m also a great believer that learning should be something fun and you shouldn’t be sat at a desk doing homework before you even start school! Thankfully there were loads of bloggers with some great ideas to share.
