Somehow it doesn’t seem quite right to be sharing apple crafts yet, it’s still summer after all! Yet this week I went on a day out with my kids to a local orchard run by a charity. They had a great time hunting for bugs, counting butterflies and eating blackberries and windfall apples there. So maybe it is apple season already?! This week I’m sharing some paper cup crafts along with some of my fellow bloggers and after we came home I did two little apple themed crafts with my kids, the first one of these is this simple paper cup apple shaker which would be great fun for getting kids to make some noise at a Harvest Festival (Harvest Festival talk already?! Woah, let’s get on with the craft…!)
Autumn and Halloween
Like a lot of kids my son loves looking at fireworks and with Bonfire Night on the horizon I thought it would be fun to try out a little activity to help get him excited about it! This would be a great fireworks craft for preschoolers or those in the first few years of school and it could easily be used as a Diwali, Thanksgiving or New Years Eve craft too!
Every time I think that’s it for Halloween crafting this year something else comes up that we want to make! I suppose I shouldn’t be that surprised that with a Batman obsessed toddler that a request for paper plate bats happened (‘lets make bats mummy!’ ‘Err… yep I think I can work that one out!’) These were so much fun to do, we did them sat next to each other, both working on the task and we were both really happy with how they turned out.
Welcome aboard to this weeks Tuesday Tutorials! This week I’m sharing some of the great Halloween stuff that was linked up last week with these brilliant spider crafts and activities.
Welcome back to Tuesday Tutorials, the linky that often gets shortened to pintorials as it won’t fit in my page title! Last week the linky went into full blown seasonal crafting mode and we got the most entries so far – hurray! To celebrate I thought I’d share a load of the fun Halloween activities for kids that were linked up last week.
