Crafting isn’t only for big kids. My 1yo loves to craft and paint and when my eldest is at school i love to sit down and spend time painting with her. Today was her grandmothers birthday so made this toddler finger-paint berry heart card, isn’t it sweet? the best part is that it can be as spotty and smudgy as your toddler chooses and it will still look adorable!
You will need
Green and Yellow Paint
2 Googly eyes
A marker pen
First you will need to make your card shape. Take a rectangle strip of card (we usually quarter a piece of A4 to make four cards) and fold it in half. Trim your card to make it into a square. Draw on the curves of your heart as you can see above. Cut out your heart shape.
Now its time to fingerpaint your card! Add some green fingerprints for leaves and some yellow fingerprints for seeds.
Finish off your the front of your berry heart card by giving him two googly eyes and drawing on a smiley mouth!
Now all that’s left to do is write your message inside and gift your heart to someone special.
If you've followed the blog at all you will know that my son is mad about all things under the sea. He loves learning about the ocean environment and its inhabitants though his books and we read some of national geographic kids ultimate oceanpedia almost every single day. He loves watching documentaries together too and more often than not hes the one teaching me something new! It was actually him who gave me the idea for this cute paper plate jellyfish
Today I'm back again with another pipe cleaner craft! We had so much fun making these yesterday and came up with some really fun little ideas. I think though that these pipe cleaner snail magnets are my favourite of the day. They're just so adorable and once you get the hang of them they're really easy to make too. We have a whole garden full of them on our fridge right now!
How sweet are these little pipe cleaner apple magnets? It took us a couple of tries to perfect them but now weve got them figured and wanted to share them with you all! In fact, we've got so good at making them that it only takes us a few minutes on each. My son recently Made some sweet apple and worm cards for his teachers as due to current situation he wont be going back to school this year and he wanted to make extra to gift them too. Such a sweet little idea!
