Rainy Day Activities

Finding rainy day activities can prove to be particularly challenging when you have got kids. However, a well-stocked craft cupboard can keep the entire family happily occupied.

Most people will have the material needed for our projects at home already - ready to start the fun straight away!

Sensory Bottles

Sensory bottles are a lot of fun to make and play with. We started off with a calming glitter bottle and then couldn't stop experimenting. So we also made an ocean wave bottle and a bubbly bottle! Have a look!

How to make salt dough

Salt dough is very quick and easy to make and there is almost no limit as to what you can do with it. By adding some drops of food colouring you can easily make some coloured dough, too.

It is great for children of different ages - toddlers and preschoolers as well as older kids!

Toddler Activities

Creating something with your toddler can be great fun for both adult and child.

We have some easy to follow ideas how to get creative with your toddler.

Have a go at our Tissue Paper Collage or our Heart Art  - they will definitely create some lovely results.

Remember, though, art and craft with toddlers is all about the process and not about the result!
