Animal making has been my big thing this week in the studio @_claire_paveley_ and the kiddos love to join in....so yes they can make animals but combined with the challenge from @get.creative.with which Sian of @teach.investigate.play has the fab role if judging. Off they went to look for everyday items to make their animals with and they did good I think.... cardboard tubes! we get through so many rolls of kitchen paper and they’re great to have long or cut down for wheels (favourite with Arlo!) girls also have a current everyday item...split pins!, yes plenty of organising and so much paperwork in their new school years☺️! So a thank you to @get.creative.with and the everyday item challenge, it’s good to see you lovelies and join in the fun again @littlebuttondiaries @ohcreativeday @teach.investigate.play

Using nature and learning about nature and creatures is such a key part to crafting with children, they learn so much through the creativity.
Today we thought about the little snail, his home on his back, where he goes slowly and surely, things they like to eat and other similar creatures to the snail. Take a flick through these fabulous creations that the super makers made and are ready to display on the walls.

Are you smiling? My smile always gets bigger when I see a rainbow so when I can’t see one in the sky I have this little friend to smile at and a rainbow rock too 🌈

A couple or so years back I decided it would be good to a doodle a day, I posted daily and the response was amazing. When we saw in the following year so many asked if I’d do it again as they loved the daily (mostly girl) doodle but I thought it was done and I’d move on. These girls however are still used and referred back to and I am very fond of them. Today has been very grey so i thought I’d share this rainbow to add some cheery colour 🌈❤️🧡💛💚💙💜💗
Thought of you too... @hellowonderful_co @wordrocksproject @sharearainbowday @rainbowrockproject

Beach finds with my little painterly touches. Plenty of beach finds which the kiddos loved but when it came to crafting with them back at camp I was the only one painting....other activities included building, balancing, mine is bigger than yours, and so on!

Weave with beach rubbish aka plastic.....we are away right now but that didn’t stop us joining in with beautiful weaves that we found around the edge of a Silver Strands beautiful beach. People gather the plastics they find and attach them the the fences and gates, they end up looking fantastic ....scroll through to see more 💙

Three blank canvases, a rainbow palette and a roll of washi tape plus the magic of inspiring each other!
