I love this lockdown time capsule printable that my friends at Epson have produced. It is the perfect activity to do with the kids as a record of this unprecedented time in our lives. Yes, I work with Epson, but they have not asked me to share, but I think it is ace and a great way to record some family history.
Printable Thank you colouring Pages is a paid collaborative post with Epson as I am an #EpsonAbassador and I have been so thankful of our Epson printers since lockdown. I wanted to share the love and I produced two fantastic Thank you colouring pages and Thank you cards to colour which are perfect for giving to keyworkers.
I have to admit, I am a sucker for rainbow crafts and activities. I am not a muted palate girl at all and the colours of the rainbow really do sing out to me. So I have gathered together some of my favourite rainbow crafts and activities for kids of all ages to share with you. In fact, I have gathered together what I think are over 40 of the best rainbow crafts for kids on the web.
Free Printable Christmas Star Ornaments with Templates is a paid collaborative post with Epson as I am #EpsonAbassador. I wanted to really put the EcoTank ET-7700 through its paces this month, so I designed a free star decoration inspired by the ones I used to make as a child from the previous years Christmas cards.
Tissue Confetti DIY Decorated Photo Frame is a paid collaborative post with Bostik. This is a super simple craft DIY that is a perfect group craft for tweens and teens. Just imagine doing this as a birthday party craft or with a group of beavers or cubs. Alternatively, you could make this for the birthday boy/girl and pop a picture of them in it.
Is there anything better than a homemade card and I have been through my archives to find you a fabulous selection of free Father’s Day cards for you to print and give to the kids. I do love a freebie and even more, I love a homemade card, so if you combine the two you have free father’s day cards and printables and you are on to a winner. Over the years I have had some fabulous cards and printables designed and I wanted to round them up so you can see them all in one place.
Can you feel Spring in the air yet? I think I can and I have started thinking about Spring crafts for kids and spring crafts for preschoolers. 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.
Magnetic Pin Bowl Tutorial is a paid collaboration with Bostik. I have been lusting after a magnetic pin bowl for my sewing for ages, but at around £15 for a pretty pink or blue polka dot one, they were out of my price range, especially when you can pick up a deep red car parts dish for less than £4!
What is not to like about this fingerprint Christmas tree ornament made from air drying clay? Anyone that knows me will tell you I am a big lover of creating Christmas ornaments from air drying clay and that I also a fan of using fingerprints to create keepsake decorations such as these Fingerprint Christmas Tree Ornaments. In the past, we have made fingerprint snowman ornaments and also heart ornaments. I have seen Fingerprint Christmas Tree Ornaments made with salt dough, but I wanted to use white air drying clay.
How to make a Smallfoot ornament is a paid collaborative post with Warner Brothers. Have you heard of Smallfoot yet? Well, be prepared for all things Smallfoot as it avalanched into UK cinemas on 12th October 2018. It is an animated adventure for all ages, with original music and an all-star cast, Smallfoot, turns the Bigfoot legend upside down when a bright young Yeti finds something he thought didn’t exist—a human. We are all really excited to see it here in The Mad House, even Maxi as he is a big fan of James Cordon.
