The last few days we’ve been busy trying to come up with some sweet and simple crafts that are really easy for children to make at home. With the current situation most of us are spending pretty much all of our time at home and when its rains and pours, most of that time is indoors. Crafting is a really fun way for children to pass some time and even if its not your cup of tea, these crafts are really simple, straighforward and easy to make – just like this super cute and simple Easter chick collage!
You will need
Coloured paper (yellow, green and orange)
To make the body you’ll need to cut out two yellow circles; one slightly smaller than the other. To get good sizings we drew around the outside of a roll of sellotape for the body and then around the inside for the head. Glue your two circles down in position overlapping slightly as you can see in the picture above.
Cut out an orange triangle for the beak and two curvy tridents for the legs and feet. Glue your pieces down in place.
Glue down a googly eye on the head circle of your Easter chick. Now take your marker and use it to draw on a U shaped wing.
Take your ribbon and tie it in to a bow. Glue your bow down in place where your body circle meets the head circle. Finish off by cutting out a green tuft of grass and gluing it on to your picture. You could even go on to draw on some flowers and some butterflies or bumble bees!
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!
