I know that this paper plate emoji craft for kids was a big hit with my two as they’ve taken their creations into school and nursery today to show them off! Although perhaps emoji crafts aren’t the first kids craft you’d think of (at three and six years old my two don’t exactly text yet) there’s something about emoji’s that really appeal to kids. Perhaps it’s the big kid friendly faces, perhaps it’s that they’re a grown up thing that looks like a kids thing. I don’t know but either way this fun paper plate craft was a huge hit here so hopefully it will be for you too.
the weekend before last we went glamping, I’m a huge fan of spending time with the kids outdoors and they love to go and set up home in a yurt on Bodmin Moor. There was of course, one little problem. Ok, actually there was two. Firstly we were meant to go out for the day and our car decided that it no longer wanted anything to do with it’s fan belt, meaning that it wouldn’t move and we had a bit of an unplanned day at the yurt and secondly, well…. British summertime once again failed to amaze us which meant that we had a bit of self imposed time hiding indoors. Thankfully we’d been asked if we’d like to review some of the mini games from Orchard Toys so this was the perfect time to try them out.
Dear Zoo is one of my preschoolers favourite books so it seemed only right to create a round up of Dear Zoo activities and crafts as I’m sure there are lots of other kids who feel the same! I wasn’t sure at first how many I’d be able to find but after asking a few bloggers for assistance I was overwhelmed by the most amazing selection of Dear Zoo activities, I’m sure you’ll love them too! Some of these are zoo activities for kids while others are specific Dear Zoo activities. There’s a really good range from Dear Zoo literacy activities to colouring sheets and crafts so I’m sure you’ll find something that’s right for you and your kids.
I know, I know. I like to believe that even though I’m getting close to 40 I can still wear exactly what I wore when I was 18 but the truth is I just don’t have that body anymore. I don’t know if I can still count it as baby weight when my youngest is nearly four but the weight still hasn’t shifted. Plus stretch marks. And actually, if I’m honest I don’t know if I want to dress like a teenager, I want to dress like a woman in my late 30’s but I still want to look nice and also wear stuff that I can run around with my kids in, jump about in the waves and still look ok at the end of the day. Over the last few weeks I’ve been attempting to ditch the jeans and jumpers and try and get ready for summer instead and these are the things that have really worked for me
