Ice cream craft

Summer weather has arrived! Time for ice cream and an ice cream craft. All you need is …items the same or similar to the things in the picture below, download the cone and tub to cut out or make your own and have some glue ready!

Glue the cone and tub first and of course these can be decorated. Then add the ice cream scoops. I’ve used cup cake cases of different sizes, circles would be great too. The sprinkles are from the red wrapping ribbon. Use what you have.

Enjoy!

Palm Sunday Craft to make at home

This leaf craft for Palm Sunday is to make at home. All our groups are closed – so this is somthing to make that uses a cereal box, crayons, pens, green pictures cut from magazines (I used a gardening catalogue) and some glue. Hopefully these are things that we have at home. If you don’t have any glue then crayons, pencils and pens will be great.

Cut a leaf shape out of your cereal box – make it as large as the box shape will allow! And decorate.

There is a short toddler group Palm Sunday story here.

Lollipop stick weaving!

Most things on my blog are for toddlers but this is something for older children and adults! We’ve been having a go at this weaving at our after school Bible Club and at our church fete. Lots of concentration required at first. But once you get the hang of it it’s really relaxing.

You need: lollipop sticks or similar (You can glue them together or just hold them together.) Yarn and scissors.

The above photo is what the weaving should look like from the back. Once you’ve got off to a good start trim the end that was near to your knot.

End result! You can change the colour of the yarn if you wish.

Easter and Spring craft ideas

Here are some Easter and Spring craft ideas that I’ve enjoyed making over the past few years.

Paper plate lion

I’m putting together some paper plate crafts for a Noah’s Ark themed family event. I’ve made a lion before with wool for the mane but fancied a change so have used mini cup cake liners. As parents are there to make the crafts alongside their children there will be minimal prep –

all you need – cake liners in orange and yellow, yellow tissue paper, googly eyes……..IMG_1416IMG_1417…….black sugar paper, black felt tip pen, scissors, glue and paper plate.

Use the wrong side of the plate to make the lion.
