Here’s what you will need
How to make our handprint flower vase art
Start by drawing around little one’s hand and then cutting out 3-5 handprints from your different coloured paper.
Next cut out an equal amount of green paper stems to match the amount of handprint flowers. Glue the stems onto the back of the flowers. Then glue the flowers down onto your paper with all the stems directing towards the middle of the page
Cut out the shape of your flower pot and add any extra decoration you would like. We used some ribbon to make a bow on ours! Glue the flower pot down at the bottom of your page across the stems.
Finish off by adding a few paper leaves and any optional extra message and your picture is done and ready to display once dry! Don’t these look adorable?
Crafting isn’t only for big kids. My 1yo loves to craft and paint and when my eldest is at school i love to sit down and spend time painting with her. Today was her grandmothers birthday so made this toddler finger-paint berry heart card, isn’t it sweet? the best part is that it can be as spotty and smudgy as your toddler chooses and it will still look adorable!
You will need
Green and Yellow Paint
2 Googly eyes
A marker pen
First you will need to make your card shape. Take a rectangle strip of card (we usually quarter a piece of A4 to make four cards) and fold it in half. Trim your card to make it into a square. Draw on the curves of your heart as you can see above. Cut out your heart shape.
Now its time to fingerpaint your card! Add some green fingerprints for leaves and some yellow fingerprints for seeds.
Finish off your the front of your berry heart card by giving him two googly eyes and drawing on a smiley mouth!
Now all that’s left to do is write your message inside and gift your heart to someone special.
My partner has had a busy few weeks so my son and i thought we would make him a present. This DIY desk tidy is perfect for him to display at the office or on his computer table at home. My son was really chuffed with the result and so was i. What’s great too is that is that this diy desk tidy gift craft cost barely anything to make and was a really fun project for me and my son to sit and make together.
You will need
Paintbrush and paint
Items to decorate, we used stick on letters and other stickers that we had lying about
Take your piece of cardboard (we used a bit of old box) and cut it in to a rectangle to make the base. Now cut your TP rolls so that they are each a different length.
Paint your Tp rolls, Peg and carboard base in your chosen colours and put them aside to dry.
Once dry, use your glue gun to stick your cardboard tubes and peg in place on your base.
Finish decorating your desk tidy by adding some stickers and any additional decoration pieces. Now all that is left to do is add your photo to the peg holder and either gift or display your cool new craft!

Today we’ve been making yet more valentines crafts! This time however, we’ve used a resource that i haven’t used on this blog yet; chalk. chalk is a really fun and flexible medium and my son loves to use it both out on the pavement and for inside crafts too. It’s just such an interesting texture and style for kids. What’s great for us grownups too is how cheap chalk is, you can pick up a pack of chalk for under £1 at most supermarkets. Which makes this craft fun, easy and affordable – perfect for preschools and groups!
You will need
Coloured chalk Card paper Scissors Tape or blue tack Marker
Take your scrap piece of paper and cut it down to the same size as the front of your card (this is so that you can be sure your stencil is the right size). Fold it half and then using the fold as the centre; draw half a heart shape and cut it out to give you an equal sided heart stencil.
Place your stencil over the front of your card and secure it down with tape or blu tack. Make sure that its tightly secure so that it doesn’t move about when little one is colouring in!
Take your chalks and colour in your heart using stripes of different coloured chalks. Blow off any excess chalk and then slowly peel the stencil away. You may need to tap your card on the table to remove any remaining excess.
Finish off your chalk heart valentines card by adding your special message to the front and filling out the inside to gift to your loved one!

How to make a Pizza Valentines card!
First you will need to take the colour paper that you are using for your pizza base. Cut out a large heart and glue it near the top of your folded card.
Cut out a slightly smaller red heart and glue it down on top of your first heart to make your tomato base.
Now you will need to cut out your pizza toppings! My son wanted to make his dad’s favourite pizza, so we cut out some yellow strips for cheese, some grey mushrooms and some pink heart shaped ham pieces.
Glue your toppings down onto your pizza. We did the cheese on the bottom and then the other toppings on top.
Add your favourite pizza pun and your card is finished! All you have to do now is write your special message inside.
