Even though my kids are now past the weaning stage I remember all too well the eternal search for some good ideas for finger foods for baby led weaning, actually in fact for any baby led weaning ideas – of course the idea behind baby led weaning is that your baby can eat whatever you eat but as someone who tends to eat a cheese and ham sandwich pretty much every day I know I needed some inspiration too to get me out of a rut! Ideas for baby led weaning are always really popular here so I’ve asked some of my favourite bloggers to share their tried and tested ideas (I’m going to try out some with my kids too!). Need more inspiration? Stay tuned to the end of the post where I’ve got some baby led weaning meal inspiration too.
With so many leaves falling right now it’s easy to miss out on another easy source of crafts and activities for kids – acorns! I love anything that can be picked up on a nice walk and repossessed into something fun when you get home so these easy acorn crafts for kids are absolutely perfect. Today I’m sharing one of our favourite autumn activities as well as some of my favourite acorn activities and crafts from my favourite bloggers.
I love paper bag crafts for kids, they’re the perfect mixture of upcycling, crafting and making something that the kids can play with afterwards! Today’s paper bag craft is no exception with this sweet, umm I mean scary paper bag witch craft for kids. She might look like she’s friendly but watch out, she’d just as quickly turn you into a toad!
One of the qualities I appear to have passed down to my daughter is a shared love of all things horse and unicorn, it really makes me giggle when she tells me ‘I love you mummy becuse you a magical unicorn.’ I have no idea why she thinks I would be a unicorn but I’m happy to go along with that – as the mum of two young kids I know that there’s a lot worse things you can be called! I’m really happy to be working with Petplan Equine who asked if my daughter would like to draw her dream horse which they would turn into a toy for her. At three years old obviously her drawing is still very much as you would expect for her age (and drawing horses is so tricky!) but I was really proud of how she put her best into giving it a go!
Yesterday we picked the first of the apples from our apple tree (woo hoo!) which means that as far as I’m concerned it’s the perfect time to share this simple apple tree craft for kids. It’s super easy to set up and perfect for encouraging a little chat about the change in seasons.
