• Guest Post from Maggy at Red Ted Art – Autumn Crafts for Preschoolers

    A bit over 4 years ago I met this incredible, talented woman Maggy Woodley the creator of Red Ted Art.  I already admired her as I used to try her crafts with my then 2 year old daughter.  It was a blogging event but I don’t recall which one now though. At first I thought that she will possibly totally ignore me if I started a chat but she didn’t. She is actually the loveliest lady ever and if you don’t follow her online already you should definitely do so. Now I leave you with the Autumn Crafts she proposes for preschoolers.  ************************************ Thank you for having me guest post today! I do love…

Thankfully my 7 year old is quite happy to do activities that are probably even boring for her because she loves helping and teaching her little sister! Materials: glue stick brown thick paper white thick…

  • Paper Plate Rainbow Craft

    We started this craft a couple of months ago when it was really dark and rainy outside so we had to spend our day indoors. You know how hard it is to keep your kids entertained when they have to spend the whole day indoors don’t you? So although I had things to do around the house I gave my girls something to do too. As they were hoping to see the rainbow that day we started with that. The three of us done our own rainbow – I obviously had to show them how to do it. So we started by cutting a paper plate in half and then…
