So.. I was challenged to come up with some Puzzle Pieces Craft ideas.. we all have puzzles with the odd pieces missing. Rather than throw away that puzzle, think of all the puzzle crafts you could make! A tricky one at first, but the more you get into it, the more ideas come to you! […]
Welcome to this week’s Kids Crafts – this week we share with your our horse chestnut craft – Chestnut Pencil Toppers. Crafting with chestnuts, acorns, leaves and bits and pieces is something that I remember well from early childhood.. mainly we would make little animals, similar to the acorn critters from last week. Chestnuts are slightly […]
There seems to be an explosion of nature crafts on Red Ted Art at the moment.. first we made our Nature Bag, then we finished our Get Crafty with Nature ebook, then we made acorn elves and fairy houses… and now.. now we have acorn animals for you! Hooray! The great thing about fresh acorns, […]
Hello welcome back to Kids Get Crafty! Having made our Nature Bag last week, we have been collecting even more “nature things” to craft with on our visits to the park and playground. Even in our very urban environment nature is all around us and we have been making lots of lovely things! One such thing were […]
Since launching Time on Your Hands (Loo Roll Crafts for Throughout the Year) back in December 2010, this wonderful Nature ebook has been brewing.. Each month, Red Ted and I ventured out into the great outdoors, collected some nature things, sticks, stones, leaves and then came home and Got Crafty. And *finally* we have it finished […]
What crafts to make with sticks? Easy! Remember our Stick Men from ages ago? Well we made more! Pip Squeak had a go too – you can see the one with the squished fabric! She added tons of glue and squished it on. I think it looks rather lovely and robe like!! Red Ted now […]
Welcome back to this week’s how to.. Today I bring you “How to make Lavender Wands” – or Lavendelstäbe – another little left over from my (Germanic) “teen-hood”. I think I like the “lavender wand” name more – makes it sound all fairy like. I made two today and immediately they were “claimed” by Red Ted and his playdate. A scented wand each. Perfect.

As some of you may know, I recently had a very short trip to Australia! I am fortunate enough that I was able to go down under for a lovely friend’s gorgeous and fun wedding and that my family where able to stay behind and look after the children. Lucky me. Although I had a […]
Hello Welcome back to this week’s tutorial: How to Make Sand Beads! That is right making beads, from more or less JUST SAND! I first had the idea whilst having a twitter chat about plaster of paris (don’t ask) and I suddenly wondered whether it was “possible”… There seemed to be “very little” out there. […]
Welcome back to Kids Get Crafty! This is a very special kids crafts post – as it was called about by Rashmie from Mommy Labs. As part of World Environment Day (5 June) she wanted to celebrate and get us celebrating by creating a Forest Craft. A great opportunity to talk to our children about […]
Welcome to Weather Get Crafty – the crafty carnival that brings you weather themed crafts and tutorials from around the web!

Welcome back to kids crafts! This week’s craft was inspired by, the kind people at Interflora. About 4-6 weeks ago, they were super lovely and send me a huge bunch of flowers. They were beautiful. And Red Ted thought they were beautiful. So I thought we could make our own bunch! We save all the […]
Welcome back to the How To section. Today we are looking at how to make Organza Flowers… As you know I often have Guest Posters share their wonderful creative and crafty ideas. This is a fabulous way to keep me on my toes and help bring new and varied crafts. I have often learnt a […]
Welcome back to Kids Get Crafty! With the “Weather Get Crafty” carnival almost upon us, I thought it was a good time to have a “how to make a pinwheel” post. It has been on my “to do” list for ages, as it is of those “key childhood crafts” that every child should have a […]
Hello! The Uk has been blessed with some beautiful weather over the Easter break. So like many, we headed down to our favourite beach on the South Coast! It is always a wonderful visit, as we go with friends that we don’t see so often. And it is wonderful to see the children play and […]
