What to do with a Polystyrene egg?

We recently used a crafting kit from our website that included lots of bits and bobs of different craft materials, not least 3 different sizes of polystyrene egg. I was hoping to get to decorate one myself but the girls used them all up before I got a chance! I was rather pleased to...

I saw this idea a year or so ago on Pinterest and will have to find the right place to credit it when I'm near a proper computer but this idea for making a Pom Pom snowball fight tickled Maddy very much when I told her about it and so she made it happen....

Paper Snowflakes

The inspiration for our felt snowflakes was the paper ones we make each year for our windows. This is such a perfect craft for kids; little ones can manage simple versions but older, more creative children can really enjoy working out what cuts will manipulate the paper into more exotic shapes.

Simple Sewn Snowflakes

Since illness and panto-ing children mean we've not really started christmas here yet, we thought we would fest up a bit by celebrating winter instead. So we've jazzed up our murky foggy day with lots of snowflakes these last few days. Recently my youngest girl made a gorgeous beaded bunting strip for a friend...

Challenge: beat our gods eye snowflakes!

While admiring something done by Red Ted Art the other week, I had the idea for some yarned snowflakes. So I took the kids out on a walk, collected sticks and when they got back they had a go. To be honest, I think really we made spiderwebs, though if we spray them with...

Easy Beaded Christmas Elves

Last year we had fun making these little beaded elves from pipe cleaners and wooden beads. With some creativity, bits of fabric and ribbon we ended up making lots of fairies too and strayed into Fimo heads and faces too; the possibilities are pretty endless.
