I kind of love penguin crafts. Actually that’s probably because I rather love penguins, there’s something about them that never fails to bring a smile to my face. This cute penguin craft for kids is really simple to make and is a fun winter craft for colder days. What’s more, with a simple hack you can turn it into a fun luminary too!
Winter and Christmas
As the weather is now starting to get colder I thought it would be nice to share some cute snowman crafts for kids. There might not be any snow yet but these sweet snowman crafts are nearly as good, right? Plus this way you get to stay warm inside too!
With Christmas nearly here I thought I would round up some of my favourite free Christmas coloring pages for kids with you. Both my kids love coloring and as Christmas draws neared we are always on the look out for fun Christmas activities that are easy to set up! There’s loads of great free coloring pages in here with pictures of Santa, Reindeer and some free Christmas coloring pages for the kids favourite tv shows too including Peppa Pig, Charlie and Lola and Paw Patrol. I must admit that I didn’t expect to find so many free free coloring pages for kids but there really is over 100 here! Of course, there’s no reason why kids should have all the fun, so don’t forget to check out my round up of free Christmas coloring pages for adults too!
As the mum of fussy eaters I know that my children are far more likely to want to eat something if it looks fun! I haven’t blogged any food posts for a little while but when I was asked by Brioche Pasquier if I could come up with some fun Christmas snacks for kids then I was definitely up for the challenge and I have to say that I was really pleased with the results! There’s a mixture of sweet and more savory Christmas sandwich ideas here, perfect for a Christmas treat.
A few weeks ago we were challenged to make something using glue and I came up with a really clever faffy idea that I thought would be awesome. And….uhhhh….it was rubbish. I mean it took days to set, it was all clumpy, when it finally dried I didn’t even feel like showing it to the kids. That bad. Thankfully though I have my two little superheros on hand and they are always ready to save the day. “Mummy, can I make a card for my friend” so he did and we did and these simple Christmas cards kind of saved the day for us.
