Don’t you just love how children see the world differently to us adults. This summer activity was inspired by my childrens love of water and by a walk on the beach watching the surfers with them. This is a great activity where you can make a mini surfboard with your child and their sprinkle of imagination will provide them with hours of fun. Even better they are made with something you would normally throw out. Read on to find out how to make a toy surfboard or windsurf board that floats!
I am back with Fab to bring you our next instalment in the sprinkles of imagination campaign, where we are producing great projects that help turn everyday objects into something that your children can use for imaginative play. Fab has sent us lots of lolly sticks to make into fun and creative designs, so we decided to have a go at making a lolly stick harmonica or a popsicle stick harmonica (depended on where in the world you are reading from)! These were so simple to make, but we have had hours experimenting with what sounds we can make and the boys with all their friends have made a band!
Do your kids love LEGO? Mine do, and this fab LEGO minifigure parachute is simple to make and so much fun to play with both inside and outside.
This is a super simple science and craft activity to do with the kids. We always have lot of lolly sticks (popsicle sticks) left to use, so we decided to have a go at making a lolly stick catapult. These were so simple to make, but we have had hours of fun seeing who can get mini marshmallows into a target!
Rocket Bingo are hosting a competition where you have to make a Loo Roll Rocket to be in with a chance to win an iPod 7th Generation. Now loo rolls are something that I have a lot of in our junk modeling box otherwise known as the recycling bin and as it isn’t bin day till next week, we thought we would spend the afternoon making our own loo roll rocket. But my boys do love to challenge me and they insisted that our rocket actually move! Don’t worry your rockets don’t have to work the competition, in fact you can find out all the details of the competition here. How more »
Often you get a science kit and you have to add lots of additional products to make it work. This is certainly not the case with Ravensburger Science X Maxi Prehistoric Expedition. The only extras you need are water and distilled water. In fact you can do most things straight out of the box.
When I was pregnant I seemed to have such a heightened sense of smell and have passed that on to Minimad. Maxi has been under the weather lately and noticed that when his nose was blocked foods didn’t taste the same or as strong, so I thought we would explore this.
