Crafting for the birthday

I’ve have been determined to do some arts and crafts with sprog as soon as I can but I didn’t imagine how hard it would be to get a small person to do something. We’ve tried a couple of times and I recently found some bunting hidden away that I bought for the wedding and never used. They are clear plastic pockets into which you can insert whatever you like. I had planned to put old photos of married couples on both sides of the family in but never had the time.
So I decided that we’d make use of them for sprog’s birthday.

First I bought a large A0 sheet of card and sprog and I let loose with the finger paints. This time he was much better as smooshing the paint! And at making the paint brush move on the paper. We even used a potato print that I made…he only tried to eat it a couple of times! Once the enormous sheet was dry, I then stenciled some triangles onto the large sheet, cut them up and simply popped them inside the bunting and hey presto!!

I can’t wait to be able to make something different each year to go up!
