These beautiful Rainbow Hearts are perfect for Valentine's or Mother's Day & fun for all ages to create. I've made them several times now with different groups of children of various ages & they're always a big hit, especially when they see the final result.
Like many of you, we're big fans of small world play & anything miniature so you can imagine how much excitement has been had with this mini matchbox Nativity. It's a perfect craft if you're exploring the Nativity story, & just the right size for kids to hold in their hands or pop into a pocket or bag.
One of our favourite family traditions, as we prepare for Christmas, is our Advent Box. It's not packed with loads of Christmas decorations, sweets, expensive gifts & tinsel, but instead, it's filled with a variety of items for us to explore the Christmas Story together throughout December.
As the weather turns a little colder we're starting to think about Christmas, & how we can turn some of the natural treasures gathered on our woodland walks into festive decorations. These Pine Cone Christmas Puddings make super cute ornaments & are so simple for children to create, plus they cost next to nothing to make.
If your kids are Roald Dahl fans, then this post is for you!
To celebrate Roald Dahl Day we've put together 10 Phizz-Whizzing Roald Dahl inspired goodies that would make perfect gifts for any little 'chiddler' or 'human bean' for Christmas or a birthday!
We've been making the most of the recent sunny days with lots of outdoor play, nature hunts, & paddling pool fun. With the roses blooming rapidly in our garden & some petals already starting to fall, Minnie, was keen to add these to her pool. As she sprinkled them over the water I started to realize what a neat, natural science activity this was.
This 'Rocky Road through Holy Week' recipe is a great way to explore the events of Holy Week with children of all ages. Each ingredient relates to a key event in the Easter story, & combined together they create a tasty treat to share. It's also a fun way to help children sequence the events of the Easter Story.
Lent is almost here, Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day) is next week! Rather than giving something up this year for Lent, we're looking forward to exploring these simple creative activities together.
