This cute wooden clothes pin ant crafts was a bit of a joint project by my son and I after we saw these sweet clothes pin butterflies on I Heart Crafty Things. Ours are slightly less colourful though and more influenced by our bug hunts on the way home from school. They’re still fun to make though and great to play with afterwards!

We love making Halloween suncatchers. My son made this cool stained glass pumpkin suncatcher last year and this week I’ve been sharing some more suncatcher ideas over on the Edplace blog. There’s only one problem with this though. The toddler, she really, really does not like to be left out. It gets loud. So I’m thinking that maybe as we’re still reading Fox’s Socks she might not quite be ready for Mary Shelly’s novel, but this fun stained glass frankenstein suncatcher was a good way to introduce mixing colours and it was a whole heap of fun too.
We’ve played many times at putting toys and other things in ice, our Batman ice excavation is always a winner! I wanted to try something different though and this fall ice tower is great fun because it’s actually three activities in one. Really? Yes, firstly you need to go out and hunt for your materials, then you need to find the best way to pack them into the ice and thirdly you need to excavate them! There was so many things to discover in this ice tower that it actually couldn’t all be excavated in one session, making this an activity that kept my kids busy for ages!
