Next week is half term in most parts of the UK, and if the weather continues as it has been, then there won’t be much opportunity to get out and about. Crafting is perfect for when the kids are off school and it’s awful weather so I’ve put together some really great craft ideas that will keep everyone busy next week.
Teach the kids how to tell the time by making them a paper plate clock with lift up flaps to reveal the minutes. If you want to keep the learning fun going then make sure you check out the amazing Science Sparks, full of wonderful scientific games, experiments that will keep your little ones and big ones amused for hours!
You all know that the Winter Olympics are happening right now don’t you? My kids have really enjoyed watching some of the events, especially the snowboarding. So you might like to get them involved in some Winter Olympic crafts.
Get them thinking about their loved ones and say it with flowers. There are lots of lovely flower ideas here, perfect for Mother’s Day, Easter or just a simple “I’m thinking of you”!
If you’re getting tired of crafts then why not make these adorable Gruffalo cupcakes, you could have a Gruffalo themed day, take the kids out for a Gruffalo hunt in the woods and even make all the characters in this Gruffalo craft activity! Who doesn’t love the Gruffalo? You can even make Gruffalo crumble, owl ice cream and scrambled snake!
Whatever you do, stay safe and remember they are only little for such a short period of time, so enjoy them 🙂
