Our take on peonies - the flower of the moment, so we're told.. Apparently making an appearance at the royal wedding. These ones are quick and easy to do, and there's a wee bit more about them on Stories...haven't completely got the hang of Stories, as I'm sure you'll be able to tell! Instructions on the blog soon

Teds with hearts! Made from corks, and could be a sweet little gift for Mother's Day.. I know Mother's Day has been and gone here in the UK, but happening this Sunday in the US, and it's the theme this week #tagfromtheheart
Step-by-step instructions for the teds on the kids craft page of the blog (link @jumbletree ) There's a 🐰 too..

Poor old Peppa getting banned in China! Peppa? Subversive?? Bizarre. Like it's happening in a different dimension.. Mine are well past the Peppa stage now, but still have a soft spot for the Peppa gang. Especially the whistling episode with Suzy sheep. If you haven't seen it, definitely worth a look on YouTube. A proper classic! This mini one is made from an egg carton. Instructions on the blog (link @jumbletree)

These animals really are going to the zoo..! I've been making them for a display at the London Zoo shop, which is very exciting.. Everything in the picture is made from cardboard tubes, egg cartons and cereal box card - nothing else apart from some paint and glue. These projects and many more are in #makeyourownzoo and quite a few of them are on the blog too :)

We made a few of these when Daisy was into unicorns.. she now seems to be going through a cactus and gold pineapple phase..
Thought we'd revisit this project though, because it's all about πŸ¦„πŸ¦„

Speckledy hen made from a paper plate. A bit of a distraction from the grey old day we had here.. Really simple to make, I'll put instructions on the blog later. Could paint her brown, but we thought speckled, not just because it was so quick to do!
Inspired by the @get.creative.with paper plates challenge ✨

My first window display! A massive thank you to Rossiter Books in Monmouth. Would be so grateful local friends, if you could spread the word, especially if you know a little one who'd enjoy a crazy space adventure πŸš€with Brian 🦁, beardy blue gnomes and a friendly dragon πŸ‰ ... Great supporting local independent bookshops too! .
