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!
Last year I shared 10 free Valentine’s Day colouring pages for adults and they were so popular that I thought I’d share some more! If you love free colouring pages make sure you sign up to my weekly newsletter here so that you don’t miss any, I normally have an exclusive or a round up of some of my favourites that I’ve found.
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.
With Valentine’s Day approaching I thought today would be the perfect excuse to share my free heart colouring pages. If you haven’t already seen it I have a great detailed hearts colouring page that you can download for free and today I’m also sharing a brand new heart colouring page with you that’s perfect for kids or adults. Love free colouring pages? I share some most weeks so if you’re not already signed up for my free weekly newsletter make sure you sign up here now!
I love my children but there are days when they drive me absolutely crazy. So far today there’s been complaints about what’s for breakfast, the predictable refusal to wear shoes and a complete meltdown about the way fringes just hang in your face like that and that’s before 10am. I try to keep my calm but I am not the super chilled out zen parent I hoped I’d be. It is, however something that I’m really trying to work on this year so I thought I’d share my best tips for keeping calm when your kids are driving you crazy.
