It’s nearly Easter and we couldn’t wait to get stuck into some of these great crafty things we’d just bought from Baker Ross.
There were three main Easter crafts we did – bunny mix and match decoration kits, bunny scratch magnet kits and Easter suncatcher decorations. Read More
It’s been two years (two years!) since our first trip to Guildford Fire Station and we were really keen to get back.
Rowan, Joe and other members of the team met us on Monday. We started with a lesson in fire safety. We learned that fire needs fuel, heat and oxygen to burn. We also heard what you should do if you wake up one night with the smoke alarm in your house going off. Read More
It was coming up to Mothering Sunday in the UK, so we decided to make some cheerful cards for the special women in our lives.
- A4 coloured card folded into cards
- Yellow and orange card cut into petal shapes
- Empty cardboard egg boxes
- Paint and felt-tips for colouring
- PVA glue and stapler (in case the glue’s not strong enough)
We were spoiled for choice this week, as both Valentine’s Day and Shrove Tuesday were coming up in the next seven days.
We’ve done a fair bit of Valentine’s crafting over the years, so we opted for pancakes instead.

Next, we glued the parts together. We added some googly eyes and then used paint and other decorations to complete our bats. Read More

- Coloured water-based paint
- PVA glue.
We made different coloured mixtures and then spooned them into plastic bags. We snipped one of the bottom corners of the bags off, so we had a piping bag through which we could squeeze paint on to the card. Read More
