Easter bunny burlap runner – DIY


IMG_4767It’s the third item in the burlap inspired decoration. After the door wreath and the bunting here we DIY a table runner to complete the set. A beautiful yet simple craft to be able to involve your kids.

First you need to cut a burlap sheet, convenient size to your table (mine was 170x45cm) and better to sew the edges so it doesn’t unravel. Cut out some colored felt bunnies (or other material, whatever you have available). Click on bunnies to download a high resolution file of the bunnies silhouette, i made it as big as could fit on my runner size.

how to make burlap easter bunny runnerWith the help of your kids, paste the bunnies on the burlap runner, i used simple UHU glue, but make sure you put something under it to protect the table then glue the pompom tails.

clothespin airplanes – kids crafts


clothpins airplanes

We travel a lot, therefor airplanes became familiar to my son who is very enthusiastic for. Today we decided to travel somewhere in our imagination using clothespin, popsicles sticks and pompoms.

Simple and easy activity (doesn’t need too much preparation) to strengthen his motor skills, enrich his vocabulary and widen his imagination.

We were bored at home, and i wanted to create a last minute simple activity to make him busy. But i didn’t want the fun to end fast. So we started by sorting the colors by naming them and the objects we are using before we create the planes. Very simple way to teach your kid the colors and adding new words to his vocab.

Putting a popsicle stick inside the clothespin might seem easy, but for small hands and tiny muscles it needs fine motricity to pinch the clothespin. With a little help from mommy, here are the wings!

To make it more realistic, stick pompoms on each side of the pretending wings. Sticking is an interesting activity to nady. We kept on sticking and removing the pompoms for a while.

Here are our lovely colorful planes!

Actually Nady enjoyed crafting the planes, but he didn’t want to pretend traveling in them. He was pointing at the sky for real planes. Well i don’t blame him 🙂
