Union Jack Pebbles
If you're looking for a few ideas for the King's Coronation, I'm going to share a few of mine this week. Today, these lovely pebbles;use the opportunity to develop vocabulary and to discuss the King and monarchy. Enjoy!
Simple, cheap but engaging activity and perfect for strengthening little hands. Use wool, laces or even pipe cleaners for threading.
We used our finger tips to create our flag, but you could use a cotton bud (pointillism), which creates a very similar effect. EnjoyWe used our finger tips to create our flag, but you could use a cotton bud (pointillism), which creates a very similar effect. Enjoy!

Mother's Day Cards
, I love this sort of creativity in a card and so do my children. Not only does it look wonderful, I love how the children can't wait to tell their mums, nans, just like a mum, just how they made it. I hope you all give it a go, a very rewarding activity.

Mother's Day Cards
Pointilism is a favourite of mine. Extremely calming and the children can be exremley creative with colour and design. This is also an excellent fine motor activity.
Mums are like Buttons
Lovely little Mother's Day card. How much input you give will depend on the age of your little one. Regardless, this is always a favourite with mums and I think the card says it all.
Dandelion Fork Painting
A great activity which produced not only a lovely piece of art work, but it also created a wonderful opportunity for talking, developing vocabulary and understanding of the world.
Tulip Fork Painting
We first did fork painting at Christmas and my children were very excited to have another, this time creating tulips. Lots of talk about colour, Spring, flowers parts, shapes of leaves, seeds and bulbs. Happy First day of Spring; love to see your pictures if you have a go. Enjoy!
Vase & Flowers
An easy make and something that could be staggered over two days. I painted the toilet rolls on the first day and then made the flowers to complete the activity on the second. I used balsa wood for my stems and the children wound pipe cleaners around them, as they still need to improve their fine motor skills. Lolly sticks or even sticks fton the garden work just as well. Lots of fine motor opportunity, lots of creativity, enjoy!
