#CreateAtHome - Easter Bunny & Alien Bunny

April 6, 2020

There are plenty of useful tutorials online and today Paula & Albie tried their hands at making Easter Bunnies & even an Alien Bunny!
Here's how they got on!

--

Today, Albie and myself drew our inspiration from pinterest and the abundance of empty toilet rolls we had, to make loads of Easter Bunnies, each with their own individual personalities. 
We painted some, covered some in crepe paper and also made an Alien Bunny (this guy had arrived from outer space & adapted to fit in).
Can you guess which one is the Alien Bunny?

Enjoy!

#CreateAtHome - Spring Flowers

April 2, 2020

Like most parents at home at the moment, we are actively searching for arty and creative things to do at home.
Here's a Blog from Laura, at home with her daughter Sophia. They've very kindly let us reproduce their gorgeous idea for our #CreateAtHome Blog.
Enjoy!

Hi there!
Sophia is 4 years old. She made flowers using egg boxes, which she painted and then we gathered sticks from the garden for the stems. 
Hope you like it!







We love this Sophia, well done!

#CreateAtHome - Spring Dreamcatcher

April 2, 2020

Like most parents at home at the moment, we are actively searching for arty and creative things to do at home.
Here's a Blog from Tara, at home with her 3 girls. They've very kindly let us reproduce their gorgeous idea for our #CreateAtHome Blog.
Enjoy!

Hi there!

We often go to the family days art classes and miss them so much.
I have three girls and they all wanted to use up their beads and make something. 
They each decided what their design was and placed the beads in place, we baked and melted them and let them cool.
There were many ideas of what to make with their pieces ... but they decided to string them all together to make a springtime dreamcatcher/sun-catcher type mobile!



Eva age 12 made the flowers
Leia age 10 made the rainbow circle
Maeve age 7 made the rainbow











Hope you like it!
We miss and hope to see you all again soon! 
Tara

#CreateAtHome - Making Flowers & Drawing Cats and Bunnies

April 1, 2020

There are plenty of useful tutorials online and today Paula & her children tried their hands at making flowers and drawing cats and bunnies!
Here's how they got on!

--

Like most parents at home at the moment, we are actively searching for arty and creative things to do at home. I found some downloads on pinterest today and we printed them out.
Albie followed the downloaded instructions for a bunny and a cat and we'll try the sheep and chick another day! I joined in and drew a bunny to show it was easy enough that even an adult could do it!
And Tillie made some beautiful flowers using acetate sheets, but you could also make paper flowers.
Enjoy!
