We had so much fun today making this Chinese lantern craft that I had to write it up straight away! With Chinese New Year on the way I thought this would be a good way to teach my son a bit about other cultures and he was really intrigued by it, especially as I told him it was an excuse for us to eat Chinese food! This is a simple craft that’s perfect for preschoolers and my one year old enjoyed playing with the tissue paper too.
This cute sheep craft made from cupcake liners is perfect for helping kids to celebrate Chinese New Year (it’s the Year of the Sheep this year!) or is great for kids who just like animals. Me and my son made these side by side and it was a nice way to unwind after a busy morning at preschool for him. Cupcake liner crafts are great fun for kids and as they are a cheap it makes them an easy craft to do that you won’t mind if it only takes five minites!
Well so far there has been no snow this year around our way at all, much to my son’s disappointment! It has been very cold though (by my standards anyway!) and I know that it’s been snowing where a lot of other bloggers live so this weeks Tuesday Tutorials round up is all about snow crafts and activities.
We had lots of fun last week with my son’s friends making these cute valentine’s day crafts. Lots of glitter glue was involved which always seems to be a winner and sticking the hearts helped improve their fine motor skills while us mums attempted to drink tea while it was still hot! Each kid made their own valentine’s day wreath, two four year old boys and a two year old girl and I think they look pretty cool!
Last week we had friends round to visit for a playdate and I thought it might be nice to try and get all the kids to settle down and do some crafting. With two four year old boys and a two year old girl I needed something that could be made by everyone, especially as my daughter was having a teething day and had to be held by me at all times! These washi tape valentine cards were easy enough for all the kids to make and I thought they looked pretty cool too!
