Whether it’s for autumn, Halloween or a farm topic scarecrow crafts for preschool are great fun to share with kids, it doesn’t matter if they look less than perfect (that’s the point of a scarecrow, right?!) and there’s lots of scarecrow songs and scarecrow books for kids that you can share too!
Ever had a friend people didn’t approve of? I’m so excited to be working with Two Hoots to share a craft with you today for Cyril and Pat, the gorgeous new book from CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal winner Emily Gravett. My kids have asked me to read this story again and again since we received it, and they made their own versions of this craft too – a fun Cyril and Pat rat and squirrel toilet roll craft.
Painting rocks is still a massively popular activity and these summer themed rock painting ideas for kids (or grown ups!) are a great way to keep you all busy during the school holidays with a bit of creative fun. These rock painting tutorials are perfect if you like hiding rocks or some of them can be used as story stones too.
Having a birthday in late autumn myself I totally understand why anyone would be thinking about half birthday ideas for adults – as a kid summer birthdays seem so much for fun and strangely that doesn’t change as you get older. Even if you’re a summer baby having a half birthday is a fun idea and as far as I’m concerned if the Queen thinks two birthdays are a good idea then why shouldn’t everyone else? I’ve got a separate post of half birthday ideas for kids but of course you could use loads of these for children to celebrate too.
No matter what the season is our feathered friends could normally do with a bit of a hand so bird feeders that kids can make are a great idea as it both keeps the kids busy for a while and attracts more birds to your garden which is a win-win situation as far as I’m concerned!
