Paper Sunflower Craft 4

This is such a fabulous paper sunflower craft. I love this time of year when the sunflowers all looking glorious in the garden and standing proud.  So why not take inspiration from them to make some beautiful paper sunflowers.  They look fabulous on cards or if you take a straw on the back you can have a bunch of sunflowers for a vase or give as a gift.

Make your own Ring Wing Glider 2

Make your own Ring Wing Glider is a collaborative post with The Year of Engineering.  Anyone that knows me will confirm that I am big fan of encouraging kids to be creative and imaginative and try and get them off screens. This is one of the reasons I love #TheHolidayMakers campaign from the Year of Engineering. They are a series of challenges (one a week) over the summer holidays that parents can do with their children aged seven to sixteen to keep them active and to inspire them about engineering.

DIY Etched Wooden Heart Keyrings 5

As my boys’ get older encouraging them to be creative is becoming harder and hard but they both loved making these DIY etched wooden heart keyrings perhaps it had something to do with the fact that they were using a burning tool!  I am warning you this is so addictive we now want to etch everything that is wooden! So hold on to your hats folks as this is a great craft for older kids and adults alike.
