Earth Day is only a couple of weeks away and I’ve seen so many fabulous Earth Day crafts recently I knew that I’d have to share some of my favourites with you! There are loads of fabulous Earth Day crafts for kids in this, with some fabulous planet crafts but also lots of sweet nature inspired crafts too.
I love sensory play, actually my kids adore sensory play but I’m never going to be the mum that plonks her kids down in a bowl of baked beans in the name of messy play. Nope, never. I’ve shared a mess free autumn tree craft before and today I thought I’d update it with an Earth Day theme. It’s the perfect way for smaller kids to have some sensory fun without you having to panic about all the tidying involved.
It’s the time of year when everyone starts thinking about spending a bit more time in the garden and as our house has been full of builders this week I’ve been thankful that the decent weather has meant that we can spend a bit more time out there. I’ve been doing some work recently for Day Out With The Kids which has been great fun, my son telling me that he ‘loves my new job’ – one of my tasks for them this month was to create some simple bird feeders with the kids that were easy enough for anyone to make at home and while I’ll be sharing a few of them over there shortly I thought I’d keep this super simple bird feeder back to share here.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar has to be one of the most classic kids book ever and I’ve yet to find a kid that doesn’t love it! It’s also a book that’s really popular with parents, schools and preschools following the EYFS – I know that both my kids have ‘studied’ it at different times (does a three year old study a book? Maybe explored would be a better word?!) but it’s also one that’s fun to do some simple activities for at home too. These The Very Hungry Caterpillar activities are all fun, cute and perfect for kids – which one is your favourite?
We are in full Easter mode round here right now so I’m very excited to share with you some easy ways to style an Easter bag. I’ve been working with Print-I-Y who make loads of fun things that you can easily personalise in minutes and today I’ll not only be showing you how we personalised these sweet Easter bags but also some fun Easter tree decorations and some super cute Easter cards too that I can’t wait to send!
