Baker Ross kindly sent us a bumper box full of their latest craft supplies to try at home. The children were over the moon and immediately picked the Seaside Sand Art Pictures to make. There were 8 assorted designs, the top layer is pre-cut revealing a sticky surface. It came with packs of coloured glitter sand which we decanted into containers.
The children did their chosen designs on a tray but the sand still went everywhere!
They had a lot of fun but I was a little bit glad when they had finished!
Little Sis has a lovely collection of Elmer the Elephant books. The stories are lovely and really reinforce the message that it’s good to be different. Elmer the Patchwork Elephant is a brilliant character to craft with so today we made a special Elmer collage. I printed out a template of Elmer, got a glue stick and raided our craft supplies for squares of coloured card.
My 4 year old loves crafting so was happy sitting and glueing the squares on. This is a fun way to craft and talk about colours. Collage is a really fun activity which we need to do more often.
She gave Elmer a lovely patchwork coat which she was pretty proud of!
Her finished Elmer the Patchwork Elephant collage.
Every week the 6 year old gets a piece of homework, normally a piece of writing, book review or some maths. This week his homework was to design a crown he could then make for the special Queen’s 90th birthday tea party they are having at school.
First of all he drew and coloured a gold crown.
Then he decided to add some detail in the form of a happy birthday sign and Union flag. I can’t wait to see how he’s going to make it!
