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.

DIY Craft Foam Stamps 11

These DIY craft foam stamps are super simple to make and a great way to get older kids crafting. I am a big fan of upcycling ad recycling household items and making stamps is a great way of using any corks that you may have.  Or if you are not drinkers then you can buy corks for crafting with.

How to make paper beads Necklace from wrapping paper 18

Have you ever tried to make paper beads necklace?  This was our first attempt at them and I am already sure it will not be our last.  We have had some great fun making paper beads from leftover wrapping paper this week.  It is a super fun activity that is perfect for working on fine motor skills with kids.

We have another fantastic valentines keepsake for you today with these beautiful heart cutout tealight holders made with microwaveable clay.  Yes, clay that you can dry in the microwave.  We are totally in love with this stuff and it is perfect for things that are vertical as it is a lot lighter than standard air-drying clay, so  there is no droop!

Heart Jar Luminaries

Heart Jar Luminaries – A simple kids valentines craft 11

How beautiful are these heart jar luminaries?  February is a dark month here in the UK, so anything that can add a little joy or light is a great thing in my book.  These heart jar luminaries are an inexpensive way to brighten up the month and a simple kids craft perfect for valentine’s day.   Plus they are a super way to use up any glass jars that you have.


Watercolour Indent Valentines Cards

Watercolour Indent Valentines Cards 11

We have been experimenting with watercolours since getting some new water brushes in our stockings at Christmas. I originally bought them with the intention of us taking our paints out and about with us, but quickly discovered that the kids LOVE them and they sparked lots of creative activities including these watercolour indent valentines cards.   I am a big fan of homemade cards and hope to pass that on to the children and always make the husband a card.
