Where we live were quite close to several farms so every day we have tractors and farm equipment rolling up the road past our house. My son thinks it’s great, he loves all things farm and lets be honest, tractors are pretty cool! We made this cute little funky foam tractor craft to go on his bedroom door as part of a door sign. All we did is glue it down on a strip of card and write his name on it and it looks fab. They’re really simple to make and provide a great opportunity to practise learning shapes too.
You will need
Choose the main colour you want to use for your tractor. From this colour, cut out the L shape to make the body of your tractor as shown above.
Cut out a strip of your primary colour that’s slightly wider than the top of your L piece and glue it down along the top. Then, cut out a white square and glue it down in place to make your window.
Cut out one large circle for the rear wheel and one slightly smaller circle for the front wheel. Stick them down.
Cut out two circles which are slightly smaller than the wheels you just made. Glue them down in the centre of the wheel to complete your tyres. Finish off your funky foam tractor by cutting out a little rectangle spout and attaching it to the back of your tractor.
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!
