Don’t you just love how children see the world differently to us adults. This summer activity was inspired by my childrens love of water and by a walk on the beach watching the surfers with them. This is a great activity where you can make a mini surfboard with your child and their sprinkle of imagination will provide them with hours of fun. Even better they are made with something you would normally throw out. Read on to find out how to make a toy surfboard or windsurf board that floats!
I am back with Fab to bring you our next instalment in the sprinkles of imagination campaign, where we are producing great projects that help turn everyday objects into something that your children can use for imaginative play. Fab has sent us lots of lolly sticks to make into fun and creative designs, so we decided to have a go at making a lolly stick harmonica or a popsicle stick harmonica (depended on where in the world you are reading from)! These were so simple to make, but we have had hours experimenting with what sounds we can make and the boys with all their friends have made a band!
This is a super simple science and craft activity to do with the kids. We always have lot of lolly sticks (popsicle sticks) left to use, so we decided to have a go at making a lolly stick catapult. These were so simple to make, but we have had hours of fun seeing who can get mini marshmallows into a target!
Rocket Bingo are hosting a competition where you have to make a Loo Roll Rocket to be in with a chance to win an iPod 7th Generation. Now loo rolls are something that I have a lot of in our junk modeling box otherwise known as the recycling bin and as it isn’t bin day till next week, we thought we would spend the afternoon making our own loo roll rocket. But my boys do love to challenge me and they insisted that our rocket actually move! Don’t worry your rockets don’t have to work the competition, in fact you can find out all the details of the competition here. How more »
