ROAR! Ok this lion craft for kids might not be the most scary around (actually I think he’s kind of cute) but he certainly is fun to make. We love paper plate crafts and this one uses a fun painting technique to get a great effect on your lions mane.

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.
