March is just around the corner and with it comes world book day! We love books in this house and if you have seen some of my previous posts, you will know that we are huge Julia Donaldson fans. The Gruffalo is such a great kids book and i know that it’s one my son will remember in years to come; just as i remember my favourite childhood books. This Paper plate Gruffalo was inspired by the second book in the Gruffalo series:the Gruffalo’s child. if you haven’t read it, you should!
You will need
Brown paint and paintbrush
Orange, green, white and black paper
First coat your paper plate in brown paint and then put it aside to dry.
Cut out two brown ears and two pointy white horns and glue them down in place on the back of your paper plate.
Cut out two orange ovals for eyes and two black circles to make the pupils. cut out a small green circle for the wart on the Gruffalo’s nose. Glue all your pieces down in place.
Take your black paper. Cut out two rectangle eyebrows and a slightly curved smiley mouth.
Draw on a nose and then finish off your Gruffalo by adding two pointy fang-like teeth and some stubby round teeth. How great does your paper plate Gruffalo look?!
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!
