Big Brother loves to craft after school. Today we made some pretend cookies which he had a lot of fun with.

You will need:
recycled cardboard
white marker pen
your favourite cookie cutters

How to make pretend cookies:

Choose your favourite cookie cutters. The 4 year old chose some gingerbread men, a star and a Christmas stocking. He drew round each one and I cut them out.

I think he enjoyed this as it was really simple but he was able to do most of it himself. Great for pretend play!IMG_9508

Paper plate robin

A couple of days ago we saw a great craft on cBeebies which the children immediately wanted to try for themselves. We painted a couple of paper plates with brown paint and left them to dry overnight.

Today we finished our paper plate robins off. Cutting one plate in half to make wings, adding a beak, red breast and googly eyes.
