I love stick puppets. When the kids were younger it was something fun they could work on which helped with pencil control and scissor skills.
Activity Village staff and friends share ideas for how our resources can be used for learning at home, crafts with your own children, or group craft activities. There is lots of inspiration here, so make yourself a big cup of tea, grab a biscuit or two and explore...
I feel like Easter has kind of crept up on us, not sure why, possibly just because we have been busy with our normal weekly activities. But finally this past week we have started with a few Easter activities.
We often get some snow where we live in the North of England during winter, but it’s been a while since we’ve had a proper snow day when the schools have closed.
One of our favourite “mum and kids” activities has to be baking. We started when they were very young, just using basic store bought baking mixes and they would pour in the milk, add some eggs and mix it altogether.
Paper dolls are a timeless toy. They have been around for centuries, but were popularised in the early 1800s. I don’t think there would be many of us who wouldn’t remember playing with them as children.
We often have friends over with differently aged children and I like to put something out for the younger kids so if the older ones are busy with K’Nex or a game that is a bit more complicated then the younger siblings can still have something fun
