Many years ago I shared a bubble wrap snowman that I made with my son, it’s remained really popular over the years because it’s such a simple and fun activity for the kids. Yesterday while doing some painting with my daughter I thought of how we could change the craft slightly to make a different bubble wrap snowman craft so this is our new version. I love that even with the same theme the two crafts are really quite different although what they both have in common is that we had fun making them.
Christmas is a great time of year but it can also be a bit of a stressful one too so I’m really happy to be able to share this detailed winter colouring page with you, perfect for relaxing and chilling out with (no pun intended!).
The same as with most homes at this time of year, Christmas is a very big deal around here. Birthday’s are great but Christmas is the day when everyone gets something and everyone is cheerful, not just your immediate family but friends and other family you see on the day or even the strangers you wish Merry Christmas to when you pass them in the street. The thing that for us really signifies the start of the Christmas build up is when we get and decorate our Christmas tree – once that’s there there’s no denying it’s nearly Christmas and so we were all super excited when Pines and Needles asked if we’d like to review one of their Christmas trees.
Felt is one of my absolute most favourite things to craft with as it’s so easy to use so I’m really pleased to be sharing some crafts with felt with you today. I’m sharing a mixture of both crafts with felt to make for kids and a couple that I think are nice just to make for yourself, although if I’m honest even with things like the garland I’m sharing below I often start by thinking that I’m making it for myself but the kids soon commandeer it! These would all also make great crafts with felt for teens or tweens too.
This weekend we had a bit of a mad craft project overload making four new crafts, it’s been a while since we’ve done it so I really enjoyed it, well apart from the bit when my youngest got in a mood and decided to try and eat all the craft supplies but hey ho that’s parenting for you. My son did a lot of arctic animals crafts for kids at school last winter and we thought it would be good to try and create a few of our own, the first of which is this cute snowy owl craft for kids. I had an idea of how it should be but my kids unsurprisingly had their own ideas which I think probably worked even better! View Post
