We love Julia Donaldson books and today I’m sharing our favourite The Snail and The Whale craft ideas and activities to make and do alongside reading the book. There’s lots of inspiration here with everything from sensory play to teaching ideas and from paper plate crafts and origami to measuring activities, reading worksheets and process art – tons of fun ideas!
Crafts for kids
Easy, achievable and fun crafts for kids – cheap materials but amazing results!
Have you read The Scarecrows Wedding? It’s one of my favourite Julia Donaldson books and is perfect if your kids are learning about farms, harvest or just if you like activities for kids books! This paper bag puppet is easy for kids to make to act out the story with – or create a new adventure – and today I’m sharing a little video tutorial as well to help you see how easy these are to make.
I adore these flower activities for toddlers that I’m sharing today, there’s just so many gorgeous, clever and pretty ideas! Flowers are a great way to inspire creativity and learning in kids and there’s loads here today to help inspire you too.
Isn’t this Mothers Day colouring page so pretty? It’s a great way to keep kids busy (my two still love colouring) and you could attach it to the front of a card if you wanted too. Today I’m sharing this free colouring page with you as well as some more Mothers Day activities that have been really popular and some more free colouring pages for kids and adults.
I’m a bit in love with this Earth Day craft – it’s so simple but it’s a great way to upcycle any old magazines and it’s easily adapted for younger or older kids. This paper plate collage is a great way to practice scissor skills and it’s pretty enough to be displayed with pride on your kids wall afterwards!
