We had so much fun with last years month of kid-made Christmas cards that we decided to host a month of kid-made Christmas decorations this year. I am delighted to be sharing with you a 30 days of fantastic Christmas decorations all made by children, along with full instructions for making them with your own children.
How gorgeous is this free Kokeshi colouring sampler from my friend the talented Tasha Goddard? As I get older I really do relish the chance to switch off and unwind and one of my favourite ways is to colour in. Over the last couple of weeks, I have taken my colouring sampler with me when I take the boys swimming and it has really been fun to do.
Buttons make a great craft material and these 20 adorable button crafts for kids are a great way of recycling them. There is something magical about Buttons. I remember spending hours when I was young with my Mum’s button tin. I used to sort them and play with them and just love looking at them, wondering where they had come from. Lots of them wee her mums before her.
Have your kids joined the fidget spinner or fidget toy craze yet? If they have then they will love this post with great DIY fidget spinners for you to make. I have long had a love for fidget toys, especially as Mini is on the spectrum and they are really great at helping keep him calm and also help hm concentrate better. So I have no issue with the new craze for all things fidget. In fact, we have found them a sanity saver in the Mad House.
It really feels as though Spring might have sprung here and this plastic bottle wind spiral mobile is perfect for hanging out in the garden and watching spin as the wind catches it. I love that it is a cross between process art and a craft and it is a great activity for preschoolers through to tweens.
Can you feel Spring in the air yet? I think I can and I have started thinking about Spring crafts for kids and we have a fabulous selection of crafts that kids will love here. I love Spring, the garden is filled with vibrant colour after a long, cold winter and the days are getting longer fast. I LOVE spring because it means more outdoor time, butterflies, birds, bugs, flowers and spring showers.
