Crafty Sunday! Teacher gifts!

It’s crept up very quickly… The end of term is nearly here! I can’t believe my son’s first year of school is nearly over. 😩

So I’ve been thinking of ‘Thank You’ gifts for teachers. I’m pretty sure they get fed up with copious amounts of chocolate, biscuits and mugs they receive so I was trying to think of something different. Eventually I found this picture on Pinterest and decided we are going to give a go! 


Aswell as this I thought some homemade thank you cards from dude would be great aswell so I’ve picked up some bits for him and that’s our plan for this afternoon.


 He loves making patterns on his Spirograph aswell so this will go on the front of the card 🙂

What have you all got planned for teacher gifts this year? Let me know in the comments!

Halloween craft ideas

  
It’s that time of the year again! Halloween! When you don your scariest costume and walk the streets with your hyped up children knocking on doors for candy!
Rather than decorate this year, we decided to make our own scary creations. 

Here are a few ideas on this rainy half term to create with your little monsters:

1. Paper plate spiders 

  
All that’s required for this is a paper plate, some pipe cleaners or straws, googly eyes and some paint!

2. Hanging bats

  
Grab some black paper or card, googly eyes and a template of a bat off the web (if you can’t draw like me!) and voila, hanging bats!

3. Puffy ghosts

 
This is great for children who like more texture play. You will need some white paper, cotton wool balls and black paper. Cut the white paper to a ghost shape and then dip the cotton wool balls into glue and stick on the ghost shape 🙂

4. Cotton bud Skelton arm

  
This can get messy! Paint white paint into your little ones arm and press down onto black paper. When dry, grab some white cotton buds and glue onto the arm to look like bones! You could do this with just a hand or foot aswell. 

5. Pumpkin potato stamp

  
Carve your potato into a pumpkin shape, grab some orange paint and get stamping!
Happy Halloween everyone!
