A couple of weekends ago I visited a local carnival and had such fun watching the kids play ring toss games. Inspired by my love of hedgehog crafts, and knowing Michelle's kinda keen too :) I thought it would be fun to make a hedgehog ring toss game diy!
I don't think it's any secret that we love cuteness around here. There’s something about rosy cheeks and big bright eyes that just tickles our fancy every time. If you like simple and cute crafts then you’re in luck! This paper plate crafted desk tidy is just for you. Perfect for girlie girls of all ages, it’s sweet, easy to make, and fun to hang beside your child's bed or homework desk to keep those all important 'things'
I must confess I am in love with these little guys!! the easiest and goofiest of halloween cardboard box spiders made with pipe cleaners, googly eyes and paper. It's been a good week for crafting in MollyMooLand - after my modem was unceremoniously 'zapped' in a crazy lightening storm last friday week I have been devoid of broadband access at home and just focused on doing rather than talking about doing for the week. I should do this more often!! :)
Get in the mood for Halloween this year with these goofy, not-so-spooky, bat buddies. This 5minute Halloween craft for kids couldn't be any easier - these toilet roll bat buddies can be re-created in three simple steps - fold, glue and draw.
How to make the perfect nature crafted fairy bed from willow twigs and twine - It's absolute fairy season here on MollyMoo! all the fairies are preparing their homes for autumn and winter, and planning their activities for spending a little more time indoors, so MissMolly and I are helping out by making them a nice comfie fairy bed to sleep on. We got this idea when walking through Bamboo Boreen in an estate garden during our August holidays, and just 'had' to bring some willow home with us
It’s been all things fairies in our house for the past few weeks, after a little bit of a lull Molly has been intensely writing notes to her bedroom fairies, and sitting by their doors for a whispered chat before bed most nights. So sweet. So in celebration of our love for our special winged friends I have two fairy crafts for your kids – starting with how to make cute wine cork fairies to hold in their handie, keep in their pocket or hang from their bed post xx
This weekend Molly and I were in a pom pom craft bubble - neither of us could get enough! The spark was ignited by my experimenting with making striped pom poms, which morphed into a bee (I didn't set out to make a bee :) and once Molly held her newest little pet in her hands she was inspired to join me at the craft table to make more
Inspired by the 101 Kids Activities book I have been gushing about here on MollyMoo we tried our hand at making with plastic bottles at the weekend and made a simple rock ship with a family of peg doll astronauts. I am clueless as to why I hadn't crafted with bottles before! no construction and prep you just paint and go! such an ideal choice for after school crafts and weekend creative activities
I have a fair few craft books lining the craft-nook shelves at this stage, some I like to just gaze at, others I find great for learning new techniques and materials. My absolute go-to book for after school crafts and weekend activity inspiration with Molly for the past month is 101 Kids Activities by Holly Homer and Rachel Miller
