Its Yellow Moon time again! This time we were sent…

Stained glass effect hedgehogs, tree photo frame kits,

Halloween Stampers, Halloween glittery foam stickers,

Spider finger puppet kits, Spider jump ups, Moustache lip whistles and Rugby player colour-in finger puppets!

Phew, what a lot of craft booty! We made a start with the stained glass hedgehogs.

 

The girls and I enjoy cutting out the strips of coloured cellophane and sticking it on with far too much glue!

They always look good when they are finished and hung up in the window.

The photo trees were super easy to make and stick the leaves on. We’ve still got to trawl through all the photos to find ones the girls like to stick in the framing leaves (excuse the newly plastered wall!). Once finished, they’ve found the perfect spot in their room.

 

The girls loved making the spider finger puppets. Smallest (age 4) needed a little help but not much and it was decided that the spiders needed 3 eyes to make them even more scary!

We had more spider fun with the spider jump ups. I remember having loads of monster ones of these when I was a kid.

I left the room for 5 minutes to start making the girls and their friend tea and told them to start making a halloween picture with the sparkly foam stickers and this is what happened. They used the lot! They had lots of fun doing it. Sparkly stickers are ALWAYS a winner!

All crafty lovelyness was provided by Yellow Moon for us to review.

 

This years Christmas cards will be half Hattie-school-designed-and-printed and half made by the girls using paint-chip-sample-colour-thingies (see below!)

So, here’s what we did. Take the paint-sample-thingies and cut out triangles, stars and tree trunks.

Give your small people a glue stick each and let them loose!

We had great fun making these and some of the results are super. There was talk between the girls of fancying them up with the glitter glue!

I know, I know! We got our latest box of goodies from Yellow Moon AGES ago. We opened the box straight away and even made our first things that same day! 

So here we go. We got flower buttons, glitter glue, pom poms, butterfly foam stickers, British bird foam stickers, water colour paints and brushes, pastel papers AND plastic sewing needles. PHEW! what a lot of lovely stuff! :)

First up the flower buttons. I had a load of elastic left over from Mini’s birthday masks so immediately thought BUTTON BRACELETS! I could have done with using thinner elastic to thread through the holes as the smalls couldn’t quite manage it on their own.

I made one for both of the girls and myself! The girls nursery thought it was a great idea too so will be making them soon! Continue reading »
