Having handy some good art and craft ideas to do with the kids when the inspiration hits – and you feel up to dealing with all the spilt glitter(!) – can be really handy.
Red Ted’s Art Blog , the no.3 ranking family blogsite, has a great list of over 101 craft ideas for different age groups – and it’s regularly updated. Importantly, the ideas just need a few basic crafty bits and pieces to provide some fun, low-cost activity. For example, why not try out the mermaid clothes pegs, loo roll monsters or rainbow cookies, just for starters?
