As you can imagine, I read the blogs of my fellow Tuesday Tutorials hosts pretty often and when I saw Anna’s Cinnamon and Ginger scented cloud dough last week I knew that it was something I wanted to try with my son. Being me though I knew that I wanted to try something a little bit different so this weekend we made this gorgeous peppermint scented cloud dough!
Crafts for kids
Seeing as I had a load of felt left over from my Minion finger puppet last week, I thought it might be a fun idea to do some kind of Day of the Dead felt crafts with my son. After all, he goes to a Church playgroup and I’m guessing they don’t teach about the Day of the Dead there?? Nevermind though, Mummy to the rescue!!
Recently my son has stopped having a nap in the afternoon. I know. It was a sad day I can tell you. And while I was kinda hoping he’d start again when he returned to playgroup after the holidays it would appears that’s not to be the case. Today’s new parenting issue is therefore that he is beyond tired by 2pm so when we were offered the chance to review The Lego Movie I thought it would be a good way to help us chill out in the afternoon and as the activities for children’s books that I shared recently were so popular I thought why not share some lego activities to do after you’ve watched the film?
A few weeks back I was asked if I would like to review some craft supplies for Viking, after oohh-ing and ahhh-ing over their site for a bit I decided that I’d like to have a play with their felt. Felt is one of my favourite craft supplies as it’s so easy to use and is so forgiving if you’re not the greatest at sewing! I love making felt finger puppets and as the colours were so bright and cheery I thought it would be fun to try and make some Minion finger puppets and I’m really pleased with how it worked out!
You know how sometimes great ideas pop into your head? Well ten minutes before I was due to pick up my son from playgroup I had this idea for this easy autumn tree craft and I knew we had to make it. Thankfully it was stupidly quick to prepare and it made the journey back from playgroup much more fun so I thought that I would share it! I’ve also shared some of our favourite autumn crafts for kids at the end of this post so make sure you check those out too.
