Elmer the Patchwork Elephant collage for kids

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.

A crown fit for a Queen

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!

A day with Nanny

We love having Nanny to stay. The weather was beautiful so we spent time in the garden. Little Sis helped!

We also tidied up the front garden, both children helped to sweep up.

The children brought some new craft kits when we visited Millie Moon in Frome. Little Sis made hers with Nanny.
