Easy Kids Craft Idea

Spider and Ladybird Craft Kit 3-6 Years

You might find it hard to believe I don’t have the patience for craft activities. It’s not my personality. I’m at least 80 percent sanguine by nature. If I must do anything creative it has to be easy to do and quick especially with a toddler, which is why I love this easy craft idea kit given to me by the lovely Vicky at NE Day Crafts via Twitter. Yep it was a freebie and I grabbed it so if you’re not following her

You see my daughter was almost 2 at the time and apart from the really basic colouring we had never done much craft activity together. I was begin to feel like a lousy stay at home Mum. I do work part-time but at least still have the luxury of at least 48 hours with her every week. All we had ever done together was some colouring and may be cutting out shapes at our Sure Start centre.

Before I opened the pack which had arrived just before DD’s 2nd birthday, I prayed it would not be complicated to put together. I was however also looking forward to doing it because it was a ladybird and spider activity and I love ‘them ladybirds‘ – looking at them I mean *coughs*.

So the pack said DD had to be at least two years old. We’ve had it since August but DD was only 2 in September I therefore decided to wait till then. After clearing up from the party and putting the house back together I only got round to doing it in October!

Anyway, I brought it all out, read the instructions which was only about 5 lines and I thought if it’s this easy I will definitely be doing more craft activity! So, we started putting it together. DD helped with threading the legs through the holes and also put glue on to stick the googly eyes. We were done in at most 10 minutes and we now have these lovelies hanging in her room.

Daddy came home and for a change Mummy had not spent all day on Twitter and even had something to prove it.
