So this is the week that I’ve finally got involved in the world of sensory play. Obviously I do ‘stuff’ with my kids but reading through some other bloggers posts has really inspired me to give it a try at home with my son. This is why Tuesday Tutorials is great! Hopefully I’ll be sharing my experience tomorrow (crosses fingers for time to write) but in the meantime I figured it would be good to share some of the ideas for sensory play from last weeks linky in the hope that they might inspire others too!

It seems strange to say this but I think Autumn and Fall crafts are starting to slow down now as we all start thinking about Halloween. I figure though that gives me one more chance though to make the most of autumn so here’s some fabulous apple activities for kids that were linked up to Tuesday Tutorials last week.

Whether you love or love messy play (the fun! the mess!) anything with kids and paint involved has a tendency to get messy. Many is the time I think I’ve cracked it by giving a vast array of paintbrushes only to turn away for two seconds and then find my son up to his elbows in paint. Sigh. With that in mind I figure better forewarned and forearmed so this week I’m sharing some painting ideas for messy play that were linked up to last weeks Tuesday Tutorials linky, because at least then we all know what we’re getting into and can plan accordingly!

Painting Ideas for Messy PlayMini Monets and Mommies have been recreating some of Monet’s paintings with shaving foam, this looks like so much fun! Building Blocs and Acorns have been doing one of my son’s favorite activities, painting with nature. Needless to say I recommend this one a lot! Nicola at Multi Crafting Mummy has been doing some bubble painting with her kids to make this cute autumn craft, I used to love doing this when I was a kid! Finally Emma at P is for Preschooler also has a child who just wants to paint their body (I feel her pain) and has therefore made some cool body paint which is super thrifty too!

Tuesday Tutorials Linky Rules:
* You can link any kind of creative tutorial, how to or recipe at any level from pre-schoolers to pro. It doesn’t have to be a new post from the last week and we don’t have a theme so use the Tuesday Tutorials Pin Party to revisit some of your best tutorial posts!
* Please follow the Tuesday Tutorials Pin Party board.
* Please also follow the hosts on Pinterest – Anna, Gude , Eileen and me – this is not essential but would be appreciated!
* Visit at least three other blogs on the linky and pin some of their fab tutorials to your own boards. You could use the #pintorials hashtag to let them know you found them via the linky.
* Please note that one image from your blog may be used on the hosts blog to promote this linky and help promote your blog!
* I would love it if you could give us a text link or add the badge to your post or your side bar (not essential, but you get extra love from me if you do!)

I’d like to pretend I’m sharing some DIY stationery posts because school is nearly back and all that, but you know what? Not at all people, not at all. I’m totally the kind of girl that could happily move into Paperchase and call it my Forever Home. Love that stuff. So these DIY stationery tutorials from last week’s pintorials linky are all about me, because I love them!

Welcome back to Tuesday Tutorials! This week I’m sharing posts from last week that have some great gifts to sew for kids. Now admittedly not all of them involve sewing exactly, but I’m the kind of person that counts looking in a fabric shop as doing some sewing so they’re all gifts to sew for kids in my book and hey it’s my blog so there! Besides, look how fab they are….
