Horsing Around…

It’s the first day of the school summer holidays for many today – my son decides he’s  “bored” at 9.20am, which even for him has to be some kind of record!

To keep them amused this morning I’ve got them creating crazy horse pictures with some spare scraps of wool I had lying around which they’ve glued onto the horses mane’s as hair. The rest of the picture has been coloured in and a lolypop stick stick to the base of the cardboard cut out to hold so they can gallop around the house with them “naying” and such like…

Here’s some templates you can use to make your own (click on the image to open into a new printable window or tab)

Teddy Bears Picnic!

Counting from an early age… 1 to 5 using visual and rhyming references…

My youngest is only just one year old and she reacts really well to rhymes, we made a “wall” for our teddies to sit on so we can sing along, at the Children’s Centre a few weeks ago and she really enjoys when we play with it together

What You Need:

  • 5 Teddy Bear Cut-Outs
  • Sheets of Coloured Card
  • Felt Tip Pens, Colouring Pencils, Wax Crayons or Paint etc
  • Laminator
  • Sellotape
  • Scissors
  • Relevant Rhyme Print-out

First you will need to cut out 5 Teddy Bears and let your kids colour them in.

Feel Free to use Any of These:

(Click on an image to open in a new printable window)

Next, laminate a sheet of red card with your rhyme cut out and glued on the back.

We used “Five Little Teddies” which is to be sung to the tune “Ten Green Bottles”

Five Little teddies
Five little teddies, sitting on a wall,
Five little teddies, sitting on a wall,
If one little teddy should accidentally fall…
There’ll be four little teddies sitting on the wall.
Four little teddies…
Three little teddies…
Two little teddies…
One little teddy, sitting on a wall,
One little teddy, sitting on a wall,
If this little teddy, should accidentally fall,
There’ll be no little teddies, sitting on the wall.

Of course you don’t have to use teddies – you can use anything you like…

I laminated a second piece of card in yellow with “brickwork” sketched on it – this piece was cut down to fit and then sellotaped onto my first piece leaving a slot for my teddies to sit it.

Once my teddies were all coloured in, I laminated them and trimmed the excess.

Here’s the original song with green bottles – we just changed the lyrics to suit our purposes:

Handprint Keepsakes

Travel Nappy Pouch

Egg and Dairy Free Cupcakes

Shabby Chic Bunting

Pacaderm Parade

My daughter is always getting the days of the week mixed up so I’ve knocked up this cute little pin-board hanger to help her get to grips with it.

I chose to use elephants cos they’re pretty neat but naturally you can use anything. Also, the dry-wipe aspect of this chart can be used for a multitude of things such as re-useable sticker keepers for example, so feel free to take the basic idea and run with it!

What You Need:

  • 2 Sheets of coloured card
  • White Paper
  • Felt-Tip Pens
  • Elephant (or other) Cut-Out Template
  • Days of the Week List (see below)
  • Laminator
  • Hole Punch
  • Scissors
  • String
  • Sticky Back Velcro
  • White Board Pen

How to Make the Chart:

  • Cut out 7 Elephants (or whatever you are using) and get your kids to colour them in

(Feel free to use this template from Little Birdie Secret – Click the image to open in a new window for a printable version.)

  • Add a day of the week to each one and laminate them, trimming the excess afterwards.

(Click the image to open a printable template you can cut out in a new window)

  • Then write on a piece of A4 card along the top; “Today is…”
  • Use one of your elephants to measure the size of the gap and underneath you can write “What Shall We Do?” – or something to that extent.

  • Laminate this sheet
  • Laminate another sheet of card that’s been cut in half (this is the piece you will “park” your spare elephants.

  • Using a hole punch and your string attach a hanging hook to the top and attach the two pieces of card together at the bottom.

Pop your sticky back velcro patches on the back of your elephants and the other sides one on the top sheet where the present day elephant will be fastened and six on the bottom piece of card for the rest.

Each day you can discuss with your child what day it is and try to identify the correct corresponding elephant which will then be stuck to the main piece of the card. You can then use a white board pen to write that day’s activities and plans. As the sheet is laminated you can wipe this clean for the next day.

Ladybugs

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Crafty Cards

Flying Fish!

Versatile and fun fish to help your child with number recognition.

What You Need:

  • Colourful Card
  • Pencil
  • Felt Tip Pens
  • Scissors
  • Hole Punch

Optional:

  • Paperclips
  • Small Magnet
  • Laminator

Create your own fish template to draw around or use the ones below (click on each image to open a new printable version)

Cut out 10 fish, using the felt tip pens write numbers 1 to 10 on them. Include the corresponding amount of spots if you like.

Get your kids to colour them in.

Suggestion: Sequins and other such bits and pieces glued on would look great on these aswell.

If you have a laminator to make the fish more durable you could laminate them – it also creates a nice shiny finish. It’s not necessary if you cannot get hold of one however.

Punch a hole in the top of each fish.

Once the fish are made you can attach a paper clip to each one and using a small magnet tied to a piece of string play number fishing games.

You can use the fish in conjunction with rhymes to help your child with number recognition:

One, Two, Three, Four, Five,
Once I  caught a fish alive.
Six, Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten,
Then I threw it back again.
Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so.
Which finger did it bite?
This little finger on my right!

For my daughter’s bedroom, I strung the fish together to create this fun and lively fishy bunting.

Make Your Own: Hand-Me-Down Quilted Patchwork Blanket / Throw

This simple to make yet gorgeous piece will be so special once it’s finished that it could end up being a family heirloom passed down generations, and even if it doesn’t you will be sure to cherish it for many years to come.


Kids grow so fast don’t they, how many times have you dusted off your daughters pretty party dress or your son’s best shirt for a special occasion only to discover it no longer fits them. Certain items of your children’s clothing inevitably develop sentimental value and it’s often heartbreaking when you have to give them al away.

Instead, why not make this beautiful hand-me-down quilted patchwork blanket and create what is sure to be a truly treasured piece.

What You Will Need:

  • Sewing Machine (or Needle & Thread)
  • Selection of your Child’s Outgrown Clothing
  • Card
  • Tape Measure or Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Toy Stuffing

Please Note: This project is designed to be a “work-in-progress” and is a piece you will often return to as your child grows.

How To Make It:

  • From the card, cut out yourself a square template that you will use to measure out each patch. Around 5″x5″ (12.5cm x 12.5cm) is a good size. Allow an extra 1 – 2 cm along the edges when cutting out the fabric for your hem.

  • Using the template cut out x 2 squares from each item of clothing you have – One square will be the front of the patch and a plainer section for the back. (Be creative when selecting your front patch piece. make use of pockets buttons, patches, lettering, seams, labels etc to make each patch as unique and as interesting as possible.)

  • Pin your pieces together reverse side up, sew around leaving a small 1.5 – 2″ gap along one side to turn out. trim the corners, turn it out – press the patch if needed and fill with a good handful of stuffing. Repeat this until you have a few patches complete.

  • Begin building the quilt by sewing the patches together, sealing the holes you left for turning out as you do so.
  • Keep going until you have used your batch of clothing and come back to the blanket when you have a new batch of grown out clothes.

In no time at all, your blanket will be large enough to use and you can still continue to add to it until it’s reached your desired size.

Suggestion: If the piece you want to use doesn’t yield enough fabric for a patch you can use a plain white cotton for the back instead.

Special Patches

The beauty of this blanket is that each patch tells a story, and fits into the timeline of your childs life, creating a truly unique and special piece:

Baby’s First Outfit

Christmas Outfit

Fist Day at School

Birthday Dress

Outfit from Granny and Grandad

Bib from First Proper Meal
