Fabric paints rainbow hands

Rainbow Day at Kinder. Fabric paints were used to create hand prints and rainbow (not pictured). Washed well, easy to use and loads of fun.

Under water theme

This was another theme I organised for playgroup. There was a variety of craft's from fish to octopus's, boats to starfish etc. I will endeavour to collect a few of them and add more photo's of these items close up but they looked fantastic.

The wheels on the bus

Playgroup last year I organised a mural. We thought that the "Wheels on the Bus" theme would be great with lots of interesting things to look at on their journey. The kids made a variety of craft's that were included on the mural. Photo's of the children were included on the bus.

Face Painting

A few different faces we created!

Fairy Village

Here is another craft activity my daughter did using mainly card stock but there was also some doilies, material and a button stuck on for good measure. The photo isn't fantastic as it was taken on the computer but you get the idea.

Mother's Day Flower

My daughter and I had so much fun making the beautiful flower. We found instructions from the "Kaboose" website and modified ours slightly.

These photo's below are ours and we used a terracotta pot, stuck some buttons around the lip of it, lined the pot with tissue paper and raffia and filled with pebbles. The stem of the flower was a twig that we spray painted green and we used a hot glue gun for the majority of the project. The centre of the flower lifted to display a verse underneath.

It turned out great! The mothers loved it.

See their website below for more details including template for flower.
