How to make our penguin heart cards
Start by taking your black piece of card and folding it in half. Cut the card down into into a circular shape ensuring that part of the fold of the card is left intact. Cut across the bottom of the card to create a flat edge so that it can stand freely.
Cut out a heart shape to make the penguin’s white belly and glue it down in place towards the bottom of the penguins body.
Cut out a diamond shape from your yellow paper and fold it in half to make the penguin’s beak. Glue the beak in place just above the belly.
Finally add two Googly eyes to complete your card and once it’s fully dry you’re ready to add your special festive message inside!

Start by taking your coloured card and cutting out one large circle for the body and one small circle for the head.
Glue the head circle onto the bottom of the body circle as you can see above.
Cut out 8 little pointed legs and start by gluing one pointing downwards on each side of the head and then glue on the remaining legs.
Cut out two little fangs and glue them on the back of the spiders head pointing downwards. Glue on two Googly eyes and your spider is almost complete!
If you want to hang the spider punch a hold at the top of its body and thread a piece of string through the hole. We love the way these look hanging in our window; perfect for Halloween!

I just love this adorable paper plate umbrella craft. With all the wet and windy weather that we’ve been having lately this was the perfect craft for us to gather around the Kitchen table and do! My kids had loads of fun making these and it was a great way to burn half an hour too.
First we started with the fun part – finger painting! Take a piece of paper and using finger paints design a backdrop, for example my kids made lots of spotty raindrops and some squiggly clouds! Once finished pop your backdrop aside to dry.
Take the paper plate and cut it in half . Cut a wiggly line into the bottom to make the shape of the umbrella. Now it’s time for decorating the umbrellas! My kids used Tissue paper squares with glue but you can use anything you like.
Once the back drop and umbrella are dry take a piece of coloured paper and cut out the shape of the umbrella handle. Glue the handle onto the umbrella and then the umbrella on to the backdrop! Aren’t these just adorable? They’re great as a supporting activity when learning about seasons or weather.
