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.
As a sewer I know just how handy a Magnetic Pin Bowl is and I have a brilliant tutorial to make a more personalised magnetic pin bowl. I mean who wouldn’t want a bright pink flamingo pin bowl that was magnetic and kept all my pins safe! 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!
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.
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.

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.
