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.
My mild obsession with doily crafts seems no end in stopping with this sweet doily ballerina craft, inspired by my currently ballet obsessed daughter who saw this and then promptly made three wooden spoon ballerinas to take to nursery with her. Fun to make and when you’re finished it can be used as a sweet wooden spoon puppet that’s perfect for putting on twirly ballet shows!
Gone camping recently? Going camping? These camping crafts for kids are the perfect way to keep that excitement going and with ideas including making small worlds, handprint crafts and lanterns there’s plenty to keep the kids busy.

I think that seahorses are animals that everyone has a bit of a soft spot for (I know I do) and these seahorse crafts are a great way to share your love for them with the kids in your life. I love sharing sea crafts for kids and today I’m sharing loads of fun ideas with lots of different levels of expertise so you’ll find seahorse crafts for preschool as well as ones that are suitable for much older kids and if I get a spare ten minutes to myself I might do some myself too!
