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!
This bubble wrap printed Earth craft is perfect for Earth Day or if you are looking at the solar system and space with your kids. We got a parcel wrapped in bubble wrap over the weekend and as we can’t recycle bubble wrap round here I thought it would be good to at least try and get another use out of it before it goes in the bin! There’s a little bit more thinking that goes into it that might be obvious straight away but it’s a great craft for doing with different age groups too.
I’m really excited to be working with Macmillan Children’s Books to share a craft with you today for Julia Donaldson’s new book – What The Ladybird Heard on Holiday. This cute paper plate craft can be adapted for different ages as you’ll see below and I must admit that I rather love it’s little folding wings and the ‘secret’ that they ladybird hides beneath them. This What The Ladybird Heard craft is a great activity to do if you’re reading the new book (or the others in the series!) and is super cheap to make too.
It’s not long now until Chinese New Year and this movable Chinese dragon paper plate craft is a great way to help excite the kids about the celebrations. Since having children we’ve celebrated Chinese New Year every year, after Christmas and New Year it feels like a long time until anything exciting and the weather is normally a bit miserable so an excuse to eat great food and make some Chinese New Year crafts has always been very popular here!
This is a snowman paper plate craft with a difference – it moves and dances around! This fun snowman puppet craft is easy to make and it looks super cute too. It’s the sister craft to the movable penguin paper plate craft I shared a couple of weeks ago and it would be great fun to mix them up too for a fun little winter puppet show.
