Get creative with your kids – #LittleSpenders Competition 5

I am a big fan of anything that gets the creative juices flowing for kids and that is why I am working with Foresters Friendly Society this summer with a competition encouraging parents to get creative with their children to produce a drawing or painting showing how they would spend £5000 in their #LittleSpenders Competition.

Simple crafts are often the best and I love doing things that are easily replicated and fun for kids to make and these washi decorated toilet roll bracelets are the perfect kids craft.  I can never get enough of toilet roll crafts, such a versatile everyday material and something that we would throw away.

Simple Father’s Day card – Hap-pea Father’s Day 7

I absolutely adore this simple Father’s Day card that has been designed for you by my fab 11 year old Maxi.  It is perfect for adding a little colour to as he has or for you to colour in completely and I am sure that any Dad would love being wished a Hap-pea Father’s Day.  This card was inspired by the fact that MadDad is currently growing peas in the garden.

Drawing for fun 10

Sometimes it can be hard getting my boys to do something creative.  At the moment, they rush home from school and are desperate to get out and play with their mate and if the weather is bad then they will ask if they can play on the XBox.    Sometimes I need something that they can do that is fast, fun and doesn’t take any planning and this is where drawing comes in. Drawing for fun.
