Craft Round-up: Bath bombs, bunting & stone houses

Oooh so… we have had the busiest crafting season behind us – Autumn – Chritsmas – Chinese New Year – Valentine’s – and then Easter… a long chain of one crafty goodness after another. So now that is behind us, we are faced with a blank crafty void, or is it? No, I hear you shout, of course not! Now is the time to dig out all those “must do one day” projects that you have fancied having a go at, but just didn’t get a chance to, so I asked some BritMum bloggers for their favourite crafts.

0241First up, Rainy Day Mum shares these super cute Paper Plate lions – a great activity for preschoolers. Bright, colourful and fun! I can just see my 3yrs old loving tearing up the paper strips for the lion’s mane!




IMG_1794-300x294Next up The Gingerbread House has this lovely Vintage Bunting blanket she made. I love that she used bits and pieces of old fabric, as well as experimenting with fabric dyes. And the result is so sweet!




fairy housesI have been oogling Thinly Spread’s stone houses for ages now… and I keep meaning to make some, but keep waiting for the kids to be a little more dexterous. Not sure why I am waiting, we should just go for it. They would look adorable in our little vegetable patch!




024-Optimized-300x225Domestic Goddesque worked her magic on some juice bottles – turn the bottles into pretty colourful and above all FUN skittles.





AquariumTrouble Doubled made a cute little Shoe Box aquarium with her kids. Love it when you take a cardboard box and turn into something fun and exciting!





Slide7HPMCQ has gorgeous tissue paper pompoms – make a set of these and think they would brighten up any dining room/ family room or kids room. So pretty and they DO look easy to make!




pJennifers Little World made some lovely felt name picture frames for her kids. They look lovely and would make a great “new baby” present too.

IMG_2308Playful Learners made some super sweet Artwork Bunting – a great way to combine the artwork of several siblings that span a wider age group. Very sweet and a great keepsake.




IMG_20130401_123400-300x225Mums The Word definitely has a craft that is on my “To do list” – bath bombs. I have lots of lovely rose petals dried from Valentine’s and I think these are the perfect use for them.




little+red+riding+hood+story+boxAnd last, but not least, a Little Red Riding Hood story box by The Imagination Tree. Bring stories to life and providing lots of play and story telling opportunities.





And remember.. ahem.. if you need MORE crafty inspiration, there is always Red Ted Art, the Book – you know “cute and easy crafts for kids“. I am sure you will like it and it makes a great gift too!

Come back next month for Me and My Shadow‘s craft round up on Britmums! And don’t forget that you can find all my Kids Crafts in one place should you fancy browsing it, or find me over on Life at The Zoo and Theatre, Books and Movies too. There are all sorts of things I could prattle on about for ages about!
