This DIY toilet roll alien craft is brilliant for encouraging creative thought. Your alien creations can be as varied and colourful as the craft supplies that you own! I wasn’t surprised that the boys painted all of their aliens in different colours… their painting projects have all been colourful lately. This is a great activity for developing fine motor skills through all of the painting and gluing – we even threaded some beads onto the alien arms as we were having so much fun with it.
My boys love making greeting and holiday cards for family and friends. With Easter just a few weeks away, my boys were very eager to make some DIY Easter Chick Cards. It is a fun and practical way for children to practise their writing and there is something so special about receiving a lovingly made greeting card.
Gooey, decadent chocolate fudge brownies. These are also an ideal baking activity to make with the little ones - or for older kids to try to make on their own.
These brownies can be served either hot or cold, with ice-cream or cream. An easy, simple and classic chocolate fudge brownie recipe that is a fail-safe with any crowd. We know that there are many brownies recipes out there... but trust me - this one's a definite winner!
We’re crafting with our favourite material once again – toilet rolls! It’s our favourite material because it is always readily available and we get to reuse and recycle something that would otherwise be thrown away. It is never too early to teach little ones the importance of recycling and looking after our environment.
Paint chips are a craft supply that I can’t resist stocking up on whenever I visit our local hardware store. My children love puzzles so this DIY Paint Chip Shape Puzzle was a great way to get them involved with making their own. Simple and fun- a great way to talk about repurposing and boosting creative thought.
