For day twenty of our Stay at Home, Screen Free Activities programme, let’s create junk models!
Here’s a really simple idea that’s full of possibilities for children to develop language, art and imagination: design your dream home!
The girls hatched a plan as our holiday in Anglesey approached. They wanted to make a sailing boat they could sail in the rock pools on the beach. B’s been reading Why The Whales Came by Michael Morpurgo and really wanted to make a sailing boat herself – a wooden one, which would really float. So we did!
Here’s a kids art idea that you can try at home using recycled items that you’d otherwise throw away – we’re up-cycling and exploring texture to make touchy feeling patchwork pictures.
Are you spring cleaning and wondering how to organize kids’ craft supplies in your home? Here’s how we organise things in the NurtureStore playroom, so we positively encourage creativity but also keep things neat and tidy and know where everything is.
This post is by special request from Becky at Ar-blog, who wanted to know how I organise our supplies (I think hers might me overflowing!) If you have something you’d like to see here on NurtureStore – a question to ask or an idea you’re looking for – let me know and I’ll see what I can come up with. You can always come and chat over in the NurtureStore Facebook community and send me a message.
